    Wagoner: GM To Release 16 New Hybrid's Over The Next 4 Years

    GM will release a new hybrid every 3 months for the next 4 years

    Here is exactly what Rick says in the video about hybrids;

    We will have one new hybrid coming out every quarter for next four years. We've got four on the market right now. We are getting in the game with a range of technologies.
    How can they come out with 16 hybrids and not start including the HF 3.6 V-6? Could we see 2 mode Lambdas and CTSs?

    There's something about the interviewer I don't like, but I can't peg it. Ray from Jalopnik is cool, but the news desk interviewer guy rakes my nerves.

    I'd really like to find the full Wagoner interview, rather than the 2 second clip shown.

    I hope this doesn't blow up in his face......like Billy Ford's pledge to put_______hybrids on the road by such and such a date........
    When you turn your car on....does it return the favor?

    Isn't that a little much? He probably means that the oultlook will get it, then the acadia, then the enclave. But is there really a market for it? Especially with clean diesels coming in the next two years.

    16 total and he's probably counting the ones coming out right now (Tahoe, Yukon, Malibu, Aura).

    12 more
    1. Escalade
    2. Vue 2-mode (versus greenline BAS)
    3. Vue 2-mode plug in
    4. Silverado
    5. Sierra
    6. Outlook?
    7. Acadia?
    8. Enclave?
    9. Chevrolet Lambda?
    10. Suburban?
    11. Yukon XL?
    12. Escalade ESV?
    13. RWD Impala?

    Not to easy to see this happening since they all come in pairs, triplets, or quadruplets and many of them will use the same system. I can't believe the Suburban 2-mode will be much different than a Silverado or Tahoe system other than software and battery location.

    This is whats wrong with GM.

    How about some two-mode hybrid sedans?!!! That should be the priority.

    I agree 100%. Having some hybrid SUVs and CUVs is fine, but I don't see them being huge sellers or green image builders. You need a full hybrid colbalt and malibu. We need these in the next few years (1 or 2), not in 4 after the volt comes out.

    Let us not forget that GM is an international corporation now. How many of these will be released in other countries? Considering that, it is not such an unrealistic goal.
    Current: 12 Buick Regal Turbo Premium I Group (Crystal Red/Cashmere with sunroof) and 09 Saturn Outlook XR

    Previous: 09 Pontiac G8 GT (09-12), 06 Buick LaCrosse CXS (06-09), 05 Ford Freestyle SEL (05-09) 02 Hyundai Elantra GT (01-06), 00 VW Jetta (00-05), 85 Mercedes 350 SEL (99-01), 84 BMW 316 (98-99), 90 Mitsubishi Mirage(91-98), 79 Chrysler LeBaron (88-90), 73 Dodge Dart Swinger (87-88).

    Thank you because Saab, Opel and Holden should be getting some also!!! I know Saab is and I am sure other will as well. Plus he has said this several times people I have even heard Lutz say it also.

    Do you actually know this, or are you just guessing? Has there been any real information on how far a plug-in two mode Lambda or Impala on just electricity?

    I mean the plug-in part. I haven't heard any news of a plug-in Lambda. And news changes daily on if the next Impala will even be RWD. I would surprise me if they already made the decision on it being a two mode plug-in.

    the bigger the vehicle the bigger the return. so i see the next batch of hybrids being the trucks, lambda's, and large sedans.
