Buick has hinted that the Envision compact crossover could make its way to the United States sometime in 2015. The American version of the Envision is anticipated to have the option of a mild hybrid system along with a traditional gas engine. The mild hybrid system will turn the vehicle’s engine off whenever the car is coasting, applying the brakes, or not in motion, and then restart when accelerating.
There has not been an official confirmation of the Envision coming to America, but there is no reason why Buick would not introduce the crossover to the U.S. market. The Envision would be joining one of the largest growing car segments in the country. Car Scoops reports that a Buick spokesperson has “acknowledged that the company is currently looking at the possibility of bringing the Envision to the US market. If it arrives in the United States, the Envision should be offered with front- and all-wheel drive versions, while power would come from a four-cylinder engine.” The Envision would be up against other SUVs like the Acura RDX, Audi Q5, and the Honda CR-V. Hopefully we will see the Envision compact crossover in 2015 as predicted!
