    2008 Saturn R2 Hybrid

    This is the 2008 Saturn R2 hybrid. This vehicle uses an advanced hybrid powertrain, similar to toyotas, but, it also uses displacement on demand to further increase fuel economy. Plastic composite door panels and hood also help reduce weight. It has slightly more room then the prius but boasts much better fuel economy. Its futuristic design seems to be what hybrid drivers are demanding these days.

    Nice Job...you should make the grille wider though. Also lose that line going through the side of the car.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Re: 2008 Saturn R2 Hybrid

    I love the interior! But personally, I dont care to much for the exterior...To tall.. I usually like a high beltline, but that beltline is way to high even for me, and the height is also to much... lower the beltline and the roof and hood, and make it a little edgier is what I'd go for...

    I doubt that kind of interior would ever make it to a saturn in real life, though id like it to. personally, i think that interior will work best in the next malibu. The exterior will be toned down for production, probably leading to a wider grill, lower belt line, and sleaker lines.

    The doors are way too thin. I have a hard time imagining the stereotypic 200lb American squeezing in there.

    cool but why are you still using Saturn's current design theme?
