Saturn Vue Plug-in
Saturn Vue Plug-in
Schedule: Delayed until 2011

The 2-mode Saturn Hybrid, a full-hybrid crossover SUV, is in the process of being introduced now.

GM had planned to introduce a plug-in Saturn Vue Hybrid in 2010. ( See correction below.) Now GM says it won't come out until 2011, launching after the Chevrolet Volt. Unlike the Volt, the Vue plug-in will not be able to drive under electric power alone.

Other than being able to take on electricity from a wall-plug it will operate like other hybrid SUVs. A gasoline engine will do most of the work with electric motors assisting. Nevertheless, fuel economy will be greatly improved compared to ordinary hybrids.

NEXT: Chevrolet Malibu

Correction: An earlier version of this story said the Vue Plug-in was originally planned for 2009. We regret the error.
