Chevy Tahoe Hybrid SUV

The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid SUV is a full hybrid model slated to roll out in 2007.

General Motors has taken the strategy of developing their full hybrid systems for their heavier and more fuel inefficient vehicles first such as buses, trucks and heavy SUV models.

The lighter SUV's such as the Saturn VUE hybrid will receive a mild hybrid system rather than a full hybrid system first.

A full hybrid system means a vehicle can run on either the electric motor, gasoline engine or both. The full hybrid system is generally one or two electric motors assisted by the gasoline engine when needed. The mild hybrid systems are the opposite in that the gasoline engine is primary, assisted by the electric motor when needed. The Chevy Malibu Hybrid, also slated to roll out in 2007, will receive a mild hybrid system.

The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid (and GMC Yukon Hybrid) will both roll out with a version of the Allison advanced hybrid bus technology. The Tahoe Hybrid will also have the Displacement on Demand cylinder deactivation technology, which inactivates some gasoline cylinders when the vehicle is slowing down in order to conserve fuel. The expected fuel savings on the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid compared with the standard Tahoe will be around 30-percent, according to GM.

At this time, the production location for the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid is uncertain. Standard Tahoe SUV's are currently produced at GM's Janesville, Wisconsin and Arlington, Texas plants. The hybrid system for the Tahoe and Yukon are being produced in a joint venture with Daimler-Chrysler, which will in turn use the same technology in the upcoming Dodge Durango Hybrid SUV.

With recent advances in high-performance electric motors being able to deliver more torque, the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid, when it rolls out, will most likely be able to deliver both better performance and greater fuel efficiency that the current gasoline-only model. Time will tell how the development of the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid unfolds as consumers still have a bit of a wait.
