SUVs


The world has been filled with aplomb with the emergence of the economical hybrid machine in a class of its own. Being the brain of General Motors after years of struggles and lack of funds, the new entry in the Saturn vue hybrid presents a more economy minded vehicle affordable for all classes of people.

The hybrid system of the green vue presents a direction injection of power to gasoline engine by the use motor generator which comes in to replace a conventional alternator.

The Saturn Vue hybrid normally does not use electric power to power it unlike the full hybrid vehicles. For this reason, the Vue hybrid reaches the average of 30 mpg or simply about four mpg slightly above the twenty six it commands on the road.

These two words, hybrid and SUV, are not commonly put next to each other or even mentioned in the same sentence. The term hybrid SUV would have turned heads and crossed eyes not too many years back, but now it has become a reality. (more…)

This is an interesting little option GM is putting in some of their SUV marketed in Europe. This option even unhides a second license plate and turn signals to replace the ones covered up when you have a bike on the rack.

Rumor has it that this design will be on one of the next Saturn VUEs. Hopefully the bike rack will be included on the US model.
