Saturn Drops 'Green Line' Name for Hybrids (Visit this link)
Saturn was one of the first domestic automakers to add a hybrid to its lineup when the Vue Green Line debuted in the summer of 2006. You know, back when gas was less than $3 a gallon. Being Saturn, “the different kind of car company,” it enlisted a name for its line of hybrids, which includes the Vue and the Aura sedan: Green Line. Complete with a little badge, too. Times have changed and car shoppers don't have the time to decipher cute little badges as they frantically search for a hybrid to save them from high gas prices. So for 2009 models, Saturn has officially dumped the Green Line moniker. According to Saturn spokesman Mike Morrissey, "It was simply a practical matter. As we expand our hybrid lineup, the names were getting a bit long. It's hard to write a short sentence about the Saturn Vue Green Line 2-Mode Hybrid." As for Saturn's performance lineup, known as Red Line, that name and cute little badge will remain intact for 2009 and the foreseeable future.
