How Does the Vue's Hybrid System Work? • January 8, 2006

So how does the Saturn Hybrid system work? Essentially, it follows the steps outlined below:

  • Shuts off the engine when the vehicle is stopped, to minimize idling
  • Restarts the engine promptly when the brake pedal is released
  • Enables early fuel shut-off during vehicle deceleration
  • Captures vehicle kinetic energy during deceleration (regenerative braking) to charge an advanced nickel metal hydride battery
  • Performs intelligent battery charging when it is most efficient
