The Buick Envision is still a Bulck in China

(I am in the great city of Dalian in Liaoning Province for business. Coincidentally I am staying in the same hotel as where Buick has organized the local press launch for the new Buick Envision SUV).

Buick Envision is a Bulk in China

I am in the great city of Dalian in Liaoning Province for business. Coincidentally I am staying in the same hotel as where Buick has organized the local press launch for the new Buick Envision SUV. They had a table in the lobby for registration, and next to the table stood a backdrop. The text reads: ‘Driving force for Bulck  Like the Sea’. They can’t get their own name right.
