China's favourite US brand reveals all-new model. ( AE )
Incredibly, old school US brand Buick is now a bigger seller in China than in its native USA. China loves Buick due to the old emperor being a fan of the brand, so Buick repaid the favour by launching its Invicta large saloon concept to the world in Beijing.
The sleek machine is based on the same new Epsilon2 front-wheel drive platform as the Vauxhall Insignia and the concept previews a new executive car, called the LaCrosse, which will go on sale in the US in 2009. There are no plans to bring the brand to the UK.
