The main advantage is that the "mild hybrid" system costs less than the "full hybrid" systems offered on other vehicles.
The redesigned Vue, coming later this year, will offer that system as well. Later on, however, it will also be available with GM's "two-mode" hybrid system.
Later yet -- there's no announced date for this -- GM has promised, a "plug-in hybrid" Saturn Vue will be available. It would be a two-mode hybrid vehicle with the addition of a plug so the n Vue's batteries could also be charged from a wall outlet.
