For all the jokes about how Americans now own GM
, it turns out that AutoblogGreen
readers and GM executives think alike. In a poll we ran yesterday, the most popular choice for what to do with the Saturn
hybrid powertrains was "Move the powertrain to the Equinox.
" A GM spokesperson said today that, although the brand itself will indeed be sold, the powertrain - both the standard and plug-in versions - will be migrated to other vehicles in the GM stable, according to Automotive News
. The new PHEV will come to fleet vehicles in early 2011 with Chevrolet
badging and might someday make it to dealer
lots. As with the Chevy Volt
, the fate of the new PHEV will be affected by the price of gasoline. Nice work, y'all, just remember to not take the corporate jet to DC any time soon.
