GM to Manufacture Saturn Hybrids in Mexico
General Motors Corp on Friday unveiled the first hybrid vehicle to be manufactured in Mexico for export to the United States and possible domestic sale in the future.
The Saturn Vue, a medium-size sports utility vehicle that runs on both gasoline and electric power, has already rolled off the assembly line in the northern state of Coahuila and is being readied for export, GM officials said at a joint news conference with President Felipe Calderon.
The SUV will allow consumers to use an average of 27 per cent less gasoline, General Motors de Mexico spokesman Mauricio Kuri said. The company will have the capacity to export about 6,500 of the vehicles a year, said Kevin Williams, president of GM's Mexico division.
