Detroit Auto Show Day 1 - GM

Hybrids are in. For those that have read previous blog entries, you know that I once worked on Hybrid and Electric vehicles and have watched the domestic lose its technology edge in “eco-friendly” technologies with dismay. Only ten years ago, the domestics led in battery technology (anyone remember the USABC – US Advanced Battery Consortium)? So, I was glad to see GM announce its own hybrids for production, the 2007 Saturn Vue Greenline Hybrid and 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Two-Mode Hybrid.

The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Two-Mode Hybrid improves fuel economy by 25% and will be sold along with its brother, the GMC Yukon


The 2007 Saturn Vue Green Line offers an affordable hybrid system (full vehicle price of about $23,000) with an estimated 20% fuel economy improvement.
