The amount of range, in miles, available on the new Buick Enspire SUV concept. That same electric powertrain produces 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) and gives the concept the ability to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just about 4.0 seconds. Here’s hoping we see a production version sometime soon.6:56.4
