Last year, this time, GM announced its commitment to producing the first production plug-in hybrid in the form of a plug-in hybrid Saturn Vue. The car would have an effective 150 miles per gallon and would, in fact, run solely on electric power for the first 15 or so miles.
Up until last week or so, GM was nortoriously quiet on the PHEV Vue, but for the last few days, Rick Wagoner has been telling us to expect more on the car "very soon." We have to imagine that "very soon" means tomorrow, since that's when the Saturn press release will be. I also got a little tip on the bus to the Cobo hall, but unfortunately we're all gonna have to wait until tomorrow for details.
Note: GM paid for my hotel and travel to the Detroit Auto Show.
