2009 Saturn Vue Used to Showcase Future Green Powertrain Solutions in EcoCAR Challenge

Nearly 200 future engineers from 17 universities are getting an opportunity to show their talents and knowledge in developing a next generation propulsion system for the EcoCAR challenge. The competition is a three-year engineering competition headlined by General Motors and the U.S. Department of Energy. Each team will focus on the execution of an alternatively powered powertrain system while maintaining the performance, safety, and consumer appeal of their 2009 Saturn Vue crossover. Each Vue will have the following common characteristics:

 

•Plug-in capability

•Lithium-ion battery technology

•Use of a renewable energy source

•Vehicle must retain the safety and real-world performance characteristics of the Saturn Vue

 

Each team has revealed their architectures of choice for their Vue crossovers. There are four different types which are: Extended Range Electric Vehicles, Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Full Function Electric Vehicle, and Fuel Cell Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

Saturn Vue 2-mode Hybrid

 The Saturn Vue 2-mode hybrid is the first smaller vehicle to use the hybrid system that was introduced by GM last year. With this system the Vue has the ability to travel up to about 27 mph in electric-only mode. GM has said that the system will make the Vue the world’s most fuel efficient V6 SUV. Fuel consumption is expected to be 50% better than that of a usual V6 Vue, which has an EPA rating of 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

Saturn Vue 2-mode Hybrid- Another Vue of Green

The Saturn Vue 2-mode Hybrid is a gasoline-electric crossover vehicle that will go on sale by March, and will be the world’s most fuel-efficient six cylinder SUV. The 2-mode incorporates two electric motors into the front-drive transaxle to aid the six cylinder engine. The gasoline-electric Vue gives an output of 308 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque which pushes the Vue to 60MPH in 7.3 seconds. Unlike some vehicles with regenerative-braking systems, the Vue is refined and doesn’t go beyond itself. The Vue 2-mode Hybrid goes on sale in March with an estimated base price of $32,900.
