GM Puts Hybrid Taxi on the Road in NYC

December 28, 2006

General Motors reports that a Saturn VUE Green Line was recently put into service as a taxi in New York City. This is the first GM vehicle to be approved by the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission since 1996 when GM discontinued the rear wheel drive Caprice. The VUE Hybrid vehicle, now in service, has received favorable comments from the driver and customers, according to owner/operator Placida Robinson. Riders apparently like the hybrid and have commented that as taxis go, it's one of the nicer ones they've been in.The Hybrid VUE has a sunroof and premium stereo system. It is also the lowest priced hybrid SUV on the market, with an MSRP of under $23,000. The VUE Green Line was an attractive fit for Ms. Robinson because it met the Commission's hybrid requirement, was competitively priced and offered her desired cargo capacity.
