We have the first information on the new Buick Regal eAssist this morning, but we only have from seeing the car in person before the Chicago Auto Show officially starts back tomorrow. Visually see the fuel-efficient rack no different than the standard car, except for the addition of environmentally friendly 17-inch alloy wheels and low rolling resistance tires.
What is most important about this vehicle is under the hood – a 15-kilowatt electric motor that offers 15 hp and 110 pound-feet of torque for initial acceleration boost, which corresponds to the Buick 2.4-liter direct-injected inline-four. Combine this with regenerative braking and a start / stop system for the car, and the end result is a shelf, capable of reaching 26 miles per gallon in the city and 37 mpg highway.
Buick Regal eAssist new system first on the larger Lacrosse sedan, which debuted serve as the base engine for 2012 model year vehicles. With the shelf, but the model eAssist slot above the base 2.4-liter turbo engine under the shelf that uses the car company’s 220-hp 2.0-liter ECOTEC inline-four. The prices are the eAssist official launch later this year, announced to join.Advertisements
