GM PHEV

GMs big announcement today at the Los Angeles Auto Show involved plug-in hybrid technology and, surprisingly, the Saturn Vue. Chief Executive Rick Wagoner announced GM will develop a plug-in version of the Vue when the battery technology is there.

"The technological hurdles are real, but we believe they also are surmountable," Wagoner said.

Predictions set the plug-in front-drive, V-8 two-mode hybrid Vue would get 70 mpg. Considering the Saturn Vue Hybrid (Greenline) gets 32 mpg highway, 27 mpg in the city, that would be quite an improvement.

Rick also shoved a guy that snuck onto the stage after his key note to ask GM to become the leader in fuel economy by 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoQkVYn0gCU

I heard about the heckler, but I didn't hear about the shoving.
