Details Emerge About the 2nd-Generation GM Mild Hybrid System

Edmunds.com's Green Car Advisor reports that GM "has developed a second-generation mild hybrid system that for the first time takes advantage of powerful, lightweight lithium ion batteries to provide more power and a slight increase in fuel economy." The new system will reportedly be available in 2010 Saturns "with a lot of growth potential" across GM's worldwide product line, according to Stephan Poulos, GM's global chief engineer for hybrid systems.

Judging from the article, if a 1.4L T/C engine is used with BAS II we could see near-Prius fuel economy for about $5-$7K less, considering the 1.4L T/C is supposed to get over 40mpg highway. Oh yes, put this in a Saturn Corsa and I'm there.
