It's a sedan-crossover mashup that runs on GM's upcoming Ultium battery technology.

The design is a bit of a departure for Buick with a square jaw, though the car tapers toward the rear. It's supposed to mimic an arrow.

Inside, GM designers created "floating" seats with a new architecture meant to give the effect of zero gravity.

The Electra seats four passengers with lots of room to spare, thanks to the Ultium battery's packaging.
