Well, the new Chevrolet engine, the very awesome, isn't it.The car is clearly still based on the bolt, not another small gm platform.The current model, size, wheelbase and outline are very similar next to its photo.But there are differences.The nose is not so tilted, not so round, and the rear window kicks a little earlier.The biggest change is in the anterior fascia, where we see the buick hint.On both sides of the front bumper are protruding air inlets, which give the car a more aggressive appearance.The headlights still have a fairly round, organic appearance, but hardly extend beneath the fangs.The style runs the light part, the round shape and the smoky lens seem very much like a buick.The grille features a large badge that does not fit into the bow-tie shape and is more of a circular logo, such as a buick's.At the back, the full width of the taillights stood out, with an apparently round badge in the middle, again like a buick.Wide taillights will also be a natural evolution of buick's current light design language, using some wide and thin lights.The rear bumper has been redesigned with new lower taillights.Now that we've established that this looks a lot like a buick, we don't think we'll see this particular version offered here on the badge.This is more likely to be a buick version of the Bolt for the Chinese market, which is associated with luxury and has been a pioneer of gm's electric and hybrid models.In fact, the Chevrolet Volt hybrid is sold there in the buick Velite5, which is part of a family of electrified Velite models.This may also carry a Velite badge as well.

While we may not see this particular buick variant, we may see it offered to Chevrolet in some form.Due to its more aggressive, intersecting shape, it may be a rumored EUV model.Or it could just be a refresh of the current bolt, since the model has been largely unchanged since its launch in 2017.Extrapolating from this prototype, we can see how to adjust the headlights to bind these air spoons, such as in the suburbs and Silverado.In any case, we may see the final product, both buick and Chevrolet versions, in the next year or two.

Paragraph breaks would be very helpful.

The front profile and roof rack bars makes me think small SUV or maybe they call them MPV's in China. Hard to be certain without more info. It is certainly possible just a very aggressive grill on a new sedan. I doubt it has the name Impala, but it probably shares a lot of the same platform components as the Impala. I have heard the Buick name carries a lot of clout in China, which may be the only reason the nameplate still exists given how poorly it is doing everywhere else. It doesn't hurt to have a fan base in a country that has like 1/6th of the world population.
