When the vehicle is started, parked and running at low speed, the Buick Imagine operates exclusively electric. When the vehicle needs more power or the battery is low, the engine automatically kicks to provide smart battery charging. When you need more power, like the sudden acceleration and driving uphill, the engine runs the power grid, a generator to provide extra power. The vehicle may be connected to normal power outlet to recharge the battery. Insert the battery produces electricity in the sunroof.
