General Motors is “working on several Corvette-brand concept vehicles to target a wider range of buyers" with the goal to “blend Corvette’s reputation for high-performance driving and rakish style with creature comforts such as more interior room and storage.” According to statements shared at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) recently.
Those last words could be hinting at an upcoming Corvette SUV.

I am not a fan... Stick with the Buick Enspire, and give it performance handling / brakes. A nose like this rendering with horrible aerodynamics just makes for a bad EV.

You might not be far off.
In the GM teaser it looks closer to the Enspire concept than anything that should have a bowtie on it.

I think GM has to re-brand Buick in the USA, as sales are slow, and the brand does not have a strong focused identity, I had previously thought GM wanted to brand Buick to go after Lexus, but I think Lexus in an EV age is just as lost as Buick. With an EV powertrain performance driving is not hard to achieve, as you don't need some massive technical (expensive) engine and drivetrain to make it work, could Buick be focused towards BMW / Porsche? Enspire an X5 / Macan competitor? I think that is possible... It seems like GM is going for ultimate lux with Cadillac, so Buick the performance - mid lux brand?

It seemed like it was bound to happen after Ford revealed the Mach-E and even the Bronco. Turning iconic models into sub brands.

For Buick, I agree with @Tom E-Tron, it needs more attention to performance so they can be better slotted between Chevy and Cadillac. They need a bigger identity rather than just being around because they're popular in China.

I hope GM does not dilute Corvette, especially when the C8 has so much forward potential.
