Buick Again Registers the Electra Name

All automakers with a few decades under their built have inevitable built up a catalog of recognized nameplates, used in the past but currently tucked away in a drawer. In recent years we’ve seen a number of brands pull them out for a second life.

Chevrolet's Blazer, Ford's Bronco and Jeep’s Wagoneer are just a few of the names that have been dusted off. Other names remain locked away, at least for now, like the Corvair (Chevrolet) and the Pinto (Ford), for example.

Sometimes, a name that has already been used can make sense in a new context, like electrification. Ford cleverly brought back the Lightning name for use on the electric version of the Ford F-150.

Buick also has a name that’s tailor-made for the new era: Electra. That nameplate was used from 1959 to 1990 on a big sedan, in fact a real boat. The name 225 was often attached to the name; it represented the length of the car in inches.
