With Fuel Prices Rising, the New Buick LaCrosse with eAssist is a Great Buy

March 29th, 2011 by

Summer is just around the corner and with it comes lots of fun family outings, but it may be coupled with higher gas prices too.  So the release of the all-new 2011 Buick LaCrosse with eAssist couldn’t have come at a better time.

The all-new 2011 Buick LaCrosse with eAssist is scheduled to go on sale this summer.  Most fuel efficient cars are much smaller, but the Buick LaCrosse is a luxury sedan that seats five adults comfortably.

Not only is the luxury sedan expected to be more fuel efficient than competitors like the Acura TL, Lexus ES350 and Lincoln MKS, it also expects to beat smaller hybrids, including the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, Toyota Camry Hybrid and Lexus HS Hybrid on the highway, while offering more rear leg room than any of them.

LaCrosse is the first in its segment with a four-cylinder, six-speed powertrain, the first with HiPer Strut suspension for improved ride and handling, and is now has the new standard eAssist technology. [GM Media]

Here’s a video that further explains how the eAssist technology in the new Buick LaCrossse works:

The eAssist system uses a state-of-the-art 115V lithium-ion battery system and latest-generation 15-kW electric motor-generator to enable regenerative braking, which takes place anytime the driver is off the throttle. Regenerative braking provides up to 15 kW of electricity to charge the battery to power all of the vehicle’s electrical systems with recaptured energy instead of fuel, which dramatically reduces the need to load the engine with the generator.

We’re so excited to get the new Buick LaCrosse on the ground, and to be honest it couldn’t be soon enough. We have lots of folks very interested in the new LaCrosse because of the fuel efficiency technology is just amazing. Plus, the Buick LaCrosse is a full sized luxury sedan which no one can seem to beat.
