One in four 2012 Buick LaCrosse buyers chose the eAssist model

Rising fuel prices are affecting auto choices these days, and the 2012 Buick LaCrosse is showing one in four LaCrosse buyers chose the eAssist model.

According to GM media sources, the 2012 Buick LaCrosse with eAssist continues to lure customers looking for a spacious fullsize luxury sedan that gets the fuel economy of many compacts. In February alone, one in four LaCrosse buyers chose the eAssist model which is an all-time high.

Furthermore, retail sales of the 2012 Buick LaCrosse – eAssist and V-6 models included – were up 24.9 percent in February, a month in which it was Buick’s top-selling nameplate. In California, the take-rate for the 36-highway-mpg sedan reached 31 percent.

”The eAssist technology is bringing in buyers from premium brands like BMW, Lexus and Audi,” said Greg Anderson, sales manager at Casa de Cadillac Buick GMC in Sherman Oaks, Calif. “These new Buick customers are interested in technology and fully loaded models. One came off the truck on Sunday that we had already sold on Thursday. The eAssist story is getting out, and buyers are interested.”
