Now you can enjoy fuel savings without compromising power!
As the direct result of GM, BMW and DaimlerChrysler collaboration efforts, full size hybrid SUVs will now have the necessary power to tow boats and perform high-powered jobs that hybrid systems have not been capable of doing in the past. It is paired with a Vortec high efficiency motor manufacturers V8 that has a trademarked fuel management system for a fuel efficiency gain of at least 25 percent This is achieved with:
* An all-electric acceleration and drive capability
* The engine and fuel shut off at idle and during deceleration
* Collecting and storing electrical energy through regenerative braking
* Two mode hybrid technology with variable transmission, two electric
motors and two hybrid modes of operation.
The new hybrid full sized SUVs will begin production in 2007
Currently available hybrid vehicles include the only hybrid pickups, 2006 Chevy Silverado Hybrid and 2006 GMC Sierra Hybrid that have the highest city fuel economy in their segment.
The two-mode hybrid provides dependable power on demand seamlessly, and does it more efficiently, the motors are less than fifty percent of the size of single mode motors.
Coming this summer is the Saturn Vue Green Line SUV
Implementation of continuing technological advances in fuel and environment saving vehicles are giving customers more choices that better fit individual needs, and help lessen our dependence on foreign oil. The second mode is used primarily at higher speeds, as on the highway, to optimize fuel economy in both city and highway driving.
By pooling the expertise of these three companies they have reduced costs and cut the development time. The second mode improves efficiency and reduces the need for overly large electric motors. The new hybrid system will use two electric motors, one to power the vehicle at low speeds with light loads and the other to assist during highway speeds and while towing or on steep hills.
