GM Plug-In Hybrid Battery Could be Ready by 2010
General Motors Corp. said its Saturn unit hopes to have the plug-in hybrid version of the Vue Green Line ready by 2010, but suggested the deadline may be in danger of being pushed back, and the capability of the batteries diluted.
Last year at the show, GM said its Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid would be available on the market by 2010 with a battery that would allow an electricty-only range of up to 45 miles.
At a press conference today, a GM spokesman said "challenges remain" in developing the lithium ion batteries, but the Vue plug-in could be available "as soon as 2010." The low-speed, electric-only range of the Vue plug-in would be about 10 miles.
