A new story entry has been added:

Plug-In Hybrid Vue Work "Progressing Through Early Program Development Stages"

Quote:
GM posted a rather promising update last week concerning the development of its upcoming Saturn Vue Plug-In Hybrid.* With all of the media attention surrounding the General's other plug-in electric hybrid car, the Chevrolet Volt, its easy to forget about Saturn's equally impressive electrified compact sport-utility. The aforementioned updates come courtesy of Larry Nitz, GM's Executive Director of Hybrid Powertrain Engineering.

Nice to see that they're going with lithium-ion batteries on this ... though I'm already concerned with where I saw one rumor of the cost possibly being around $48,000. At that kind of price, I'd have to do some serious math, even though I suspect I could run it off plug-in electric most of the time.

That said, I'd like to see them make it E85 capable too.

At one point there seemed to be rumors that we might see some of these next year, but they're talking about "a couple of years" here. Was really hoping to see this sooner rather than later.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
