Jonathan Dittmar says:

how will they get energy for the eboost? likely from regen braking, so how is this better then a electric motor in the transmission?

TangoR34 says:

Once thing hasn’t been asked yet. Does that mean Chevrolet will come back to Europe again will the Spark, Cruze and other models?

Mark K says:

those electric sc is a great idea most likely gonna out last the regular unit. dont like how the new tlx looks like

Klasse Act says:

A-spec isn’t new

InternetDude says:

The eBooster is an interesting idea but it’s just more complication for the dying ICE engine. Just buy an EV already. Much lower cost of ownership and more reliable, less things to break.

Aurora Jones says:

Sport has been done to death. We all know how to make a car go round corners. Great! The A Spec is so predictable. Lets talk about how the interior is sadly lacking for its class as a “Luxury or even near luxury” car. Its all Honda in switch and material. That class requires better and they (Infinity and Acura or Nissan and Honda) are so Ford and GM in the 90s. Complacent! Wake up!

Coraga 1 says:

I like these changes on TLX makes it look more aggressive and expensive, the old look was to mellow. Also GM what does it say about your tech when Opel runs away from it in their future high volume seller?
