Report: Buick Verano Hybrid coming in 2015

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 20, 2011

Back in September, we announced that the 2012 Buick Verano will carry a price tag of $23,470 (inclusive of shipping charges). The Verano is company’s first compact car since the 1990s and promises to take on more expensive Japanese cars such as the Acura TSX ($30,495 including shipping) and the Lexus IS 250 ($34,170 with shipping costs).

The 2012 Verano comes as standard with at 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine delivering 180 hp combined with a six-speed automatic transmission.

As expected, due to tougher U.S. fuel economy standards a hybrid version of the Verano is also on its way, but this model will arrive in 2015.

Although we know nothing about the upcoming hybrid model, Automotive News reports that the new Buick Verano Hybrid will be powered by a 2.5-liter engine and makes us believe it will be a successor to the 2.4-liter engine found on the standard engine. The new eAssist will also be found on the new car, as it is on the 2012 Buick LaCrosse and the 2012 Buick Regal.
