Saturn VUE GL Plug In Hybrid on Display this summer in Wisconsin
Hello Saturn Fans, and especially Saturn Hybrid fans.
Last year at Hybridfest, GM allowed the first consumer drives of the Saturn VUE Greenline Hybrid. This year there will be another interesting Saturn vehicle on display.
So how would you like to see a Saturn VUE Plug-in Hybrid up close and personal? You can! There will be one on display at Hybridfest in Madison, Wisconsin July 21 and 22. It is a prototype PHEV Saturn VUE Greenline, with 150kW assist and 10kWhr stored energy. Argonne Labs, who is testing the Greenline PHEV is also sending along a knowledge expert, Ted Bohn to do some presentations about it. The VUE will be one of many hybrids you can experience at the festival.
If you are not familiar with the event, the official tile is Hybridfest - A Hybrid Electric Car Show and More! Hybridfest is one of the Midwest’s first events specifically devoted to the hybrid electric vehicle and other vehicles and fuels that can wean America off its dependence on foreign oil. It's open to the public and is part of the Dane County Fair. Parking is free. (See site for entrance fee info.)
Hybridfest is a place for hybrid owners and the general public alike to interact and compare not only current favorites but also new and forthcoming hybrid car offerings. It also a place to get answered some of those nagging questions you have about hybrids.
And if you already own a hybrid, you might want to consider becoming a member so you can participate in extra activities above and beyond what the public has access to like the Hybridfest MPG Challenge, show your car in the Hybrid Owners Showcase, or any of the other member-only perks. (See the web site for membership details.) You can help us reach the goal of having 200 hybrids on-site by showing up with your VUE (or Aura) hybrid!
If you have any questions about Hybridfest please feel free to post them.
I look forward to seeing you there.
