Saturn Sets Price of VUE Green Line Hybrid
The 2007 Saturn Vue Green Line carries the lowest starting price of any hybrid SUV in the U.S. market, according to an Associated Press story.
Starting manufacturer's suggested retail price, including destination charge, of $22,995 for a Vue Green Line is some $4,500 less than the MSRP, including destination charge, of $27,515 for the previous lowest-priced gas-electric hybrid SUV in the United States — the five-passenger, 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. It's also some $3,200 less than the lower, $26,240 starting price for the 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid, which Ford has already announced, the story said.
However, the story pointed out, the Vue Green Line is $3,300 more than a comparable, four-cylinder-powered gas-only Vue, and Toyota and Honda both offer five-passenger hybrid cars — 2006 Toyota Prius and Honda Civic — that undercut by a few hundred dollars the Saturn Vue Green Line's starting prices.
