If it's simple to add the Saturn Vue Green Line to GM's yearly President's Day sale (now extended through Feb. 28), why wasn't it simple to include the hybrid
in the first place? Who knows. All GM spokesman John McDonald told the Detroit News
in an interview about the extension of GM's 0% financing deal is that the Green Line version in now included for "simplicity's sake." In some cases, dealers
didn't have any non-hybrid Vues on the lot, and now they can offer incentives for these, too.
By adding the Vue Green Line to the deal, GM is hoping to boost sales across the board. January sales were down eight percent from 2006 and this month numbers are flat vs. last year.
