Saturn Vue Hybrid Begins Production in Mexico

The new hybrid Vue from Saturn began production in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico (Source: GM launches Saturn Vue hybrid production in Mexico - Automotive News). The 2007 Vue Greenline stopped production back in February.

The Vue is a popular testbed for GM to try out the hybrid systems it has. It started as a mild hybrid system, with start-stop technology and regenerative braking, but not much else. The newest incarnation of the hybrid Vue will be based on the two mode hybrid system co-developed by DaimlerChrysler, GM and BMW. GM has also said the Vue will become a plug-in hybrid when the technology for it is developed (in other words, when the batteries are ready).

Vue production started in Mexico back in July. Through November 24, 58,836 Vues have been produced there. The plant has a capacity of 6,500 hybrid Vues annually.

The 2008 Saturn Vue Hybrid will be available in the US in the first weeks of 2008. If it goes on sale in Mexico, it will badged as a Chevy and called Captiva.
