Update: GM Will Keep Saturn Hybrid Powertrains

Saturn Plug-In Hybrid Vue

Richard Truett from Automotive News: The next-generation of General Motors hybrid technology will not be delayed by the phase out of the Saturn brand, Tom Stephens, GM's vice chairman of global product development, said today. But in a reversal of plans, Stephens told Automotive News that the drivetrain that was destined for plug-in version of the Saturn Vue hybrid will be delivered to fleets in early 2011 and could also be offered to consumers. Stephens would not say which vehicle will get the powertrain, except that it would be one of GM's four core brands, Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC or Buick.

What Does Saturn Have in Common with the Energizer Bunny?

Energizer Bunny

Mike Morrissey, from the Saturn Communications Team equated Saturns to the popular advertising character, the Energizer Bunny, in a blog written on ImSaturn.com yesterday. Why you may ask? Saturn discovered through a research study conducted by R.L. Polk that 83% of all of the Saturns ever sold in the United States are still actively registered. You may remember that nearly two weeks ago Saturn celebrated the sale of their 4 millionth vehicle in Traverse City, Michigan: a black three door Astra. Of those 4 million vehicles, 3.3 million of them are still in use.
