According to a YouTube video, Eassist is not classified as a hybrid. It runs with a smaller battery and is used mainly to start the car after a stop at a light or to add extra power such as going up a hill. Which means that the car is never just powered by the hybrid system.
In the Buick LaCross, when you order the four cylinder, you will get Eassist.
