Back in the mid-2000’s, GM took a stab at mild hybrids with cars like the Saturn Aura Green Line and Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid. To sum it up, the vehicles didn’t sell as well as the company had hoped, but that hasn’t stopped The General from taking another stab at it, and so far, things seem to be going more in its favor.
Since the launch of the 2012 Buick LaCorsse eAssist, the vehicle has spent an average of just 14 days on dealership lots, signifying high demand for the large sedan that gets 36 MPG on the highway. That’s compact car fuel economy without the shrinkage in size. Too bad the smaller Buick Verano doesn’t achieve equal merits…yet.
