2011 Buick Regal unveiled for North America, hybrid version might also appear
The moment many Buick fans have been awaiting has finally arrived last weekend as GM revealed the new 2011 Buick Regal, which will be available at dealerships across North America in the first half of 2010. Although the Oshawa Ontario plant will being production in 2011 for the model, it seems that GM is quick to speculate on the interest that the new car has generation and will task Opel, which still belongs to it, to rebadge Insignia models and ship them across the Atlantic.
But besides the regular details, that it will be offered with direct-injection four-cylinder engines, an older document has surfaced, in which the Ontario plant was rumored to begin work on a hybrid mid-size sedan around 2011. The only mid-size sedan will be the Regal, fact which has led people to speculate that a hybrid Buick is in the works.
We can’t know for sure until GM comes out with a statement, but given the fact that it is marketing the 30+ mpg consumption of the Regal, a hybrid confirmation will only make people delay buying the newly-revealed car.
