Buick to launch its next generation BAS hybrid system

It's no doubt impressive when today's compact sedans -- which are loaded down with hundreds of pounds of safety gear and chassis reinforcements not found on vehicles from decades past -- top the 40 mpg mark. However, it's even more impressive when midsize sedans approach that mark as well.

You know about the compact 2011 Chevrolet Cruze and 2011 Hyundai Elantra which can hit 40+ mpg on the highway. Hyundai's 2011 Sonata midsize sedan can achieve 35 mpg on the highway in its base configuration. GM is now flaunting its 2012 LaCrosse which will come standard with eAssist technology (which will provide up to 37 mpg on the highway) and will be priced at roughly $30,000.

“It’s a very integrated powertrain system, with no compromises in driving performance, shift quality or ride and handling,” said Daryl Wilson, LaCrosse lead development engineer. “We believe this combination points to the future of vehicles powered primarily by an internal combustion engine.”

The LaCrosse will be powered by a traditional 2.4-liter direct injection four-cylinder engine which generates 180 hp. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, GM also includes its next generation "mild hybrid" system which it calls eAssist. On the LaCrosse, the eAssist electric motor provides an additional 15 hp and 79 pound-feet of torque during acceleration. Other features to improve fuel economy include an engine start/stop function and regenerative braking.

A 115V lithium-ion battery mounted in the trunk powers the electric motor, but it encroaches on cargo-hauling capabilities. Maximum cargo capacity drops from an already lackluster 13.3 cu ft to just 10.9 cu ft.

However, the benefits in fuel economy are huge. EPA ratings jump from 19/30 mpg (city/highway) to an impressive 25/37 mpg. The city rating falls short of Lincoln's MKZ Hybrid which pulls in an impressive 41 mpg, but that vehicle is priced higher at $35,180.

“The eAssist system is more than just the next-generation BAS system. The ability to integrate regenerative braking with the latest lithium-ion battery technology creates a system that delivers significant fuel-efficiency gains that customers will enjoy,” said Steve Poulos, global chief engineer of the eAssist system. “Being able to provide electric boost to the powertrain system during heavy acceleration and grade driving enables the LaCrosse transmission to operate more efficiently, while the added functionality of engine start-stop and fuel shut-off during deceleration provides added fuel savings.” 

Official pricing and availability of the Buick LaCrosse with eAssist should be available closer to its launch later next year.

If Gm represents everything wrong with business today, then you must be blind to all of the corporate crooks in this country. Other companies are outsourcing everything to other countries, hiding funds in offshore accounts, paying CEOs outrageous sums of money, while being given government incentives to do so. If GM is the worst that you can think of, you need to think a little harder.

I get so sick of evey damn story on DT being turned into a politcal discussion bashing American companies and workers.

1) Many "foreign" cars are more domestically built than "domestics". So the outsourcing argument is out.

2) GM has business units in other parts of the world whose profits are not "brought home".

3) GM's CEO is also paid an "outrageous" sum of money.

At least these other companies you speak of for the most part aren't government and union owned. The very things that cause many of GMs problems to begin with.

Companies are doing many of those things though precisely because of politics. Why pay taxes on money here when they don't have to? Why pay more for labor here when there's an ample supply elsewhere. Until our politicians get it in their head that punishing businesses for doing business harms business and results in lower tax revenues, things will continue to get worse.

Here's to our hopefully more sane next Congress.

Toyota, Honda, etc may be assembling some vehicles in the US, their percentage of parts that are American content tells a different story. Like the new Hyundai Elantra "assembled in the US" has a whopping 3% US/Canadian content.

You need to see this 2009 link which breaks down the foreign vehicles made in each state and % of parts that are North American made (US-Canada). Spot checking the site I don't see a single one under 50% other than BMW (30%) and most average around 65% US-Canadian content. Compare that with, say, the Corvette which is 70% or the Jeep Wrangler which is 56%. We need to look in our own backyards before flinging around percentages of foreign cars.

Have you read the Act itself? What constitutes a domestic part is clear as mud. The labeling act is quite easy for the manufacturers to manipulate, its pathetic at best.

As to Canada and the US they have been cooperating on cars for almost a hundred years.

As to GM they appear to be a yes man for the the current administration and that is enough of a standard for me to say they jump on command when told to do so. Appearances of an act, regardless of the facts, is enough to get military members punished. Congress wrote that law BTW. So that is where I get my standard.

To mix Government and private sector like that leads to all kinds of wonderful, unaccountable to the people, organizations like Fanny, Freddy, Amtrak... What a great track record. Look back in history at any Gov/Private business marriages and see all the wonderful outcomes.

Herein lies the problem with this country as it stands.

The fact that many foreign models are built here has nothing to do with the argument. I'm speaking of jobs being shipped overseas.

Also, in those other countries they actually tax their rich people, those employers then in turn, invest in their employees. I can't name other countries where the more money you make, the percentage you pay in taxes actually goes down.

I know GM CEOs make outrageous sums of money. I was not specific to any company. I think they're all paid too much, and that is passed on to consumers.

What is it with union bashing lately? Unions are an American institution and guarantees YOUR right to organize if you wish. It's part of the constitution so many of you claim to believe in. Do we really want Americans to be paid the same wages as foreign labor? You think the economy is in tough shape now, just wait till that happens.

You asked the question "Why pay taxes on money here when they don't have to?" I don't want to pay for war. I don't want to pay for many of the other things in this country that my money gets used for, but I have to do it. The difference is I'm not a corporation able to line the pockets of politcians to stack the deck.

I'm different with regard to labor. I guess I could never make it in business because though I know the goal is to make money....how much is enough? How much wealth does one person need to accumulate before it's enough that others cannot compete with him/her? FedEx recently showed profits double of what they made last year. What did they do? They cut jobs anyway. How much money is enough?

You've have republican-controlled congress before. Were they any more sane than the outgoing one?

NFarce, you've got to be kidding me. These working people protest in order to keep from being paid slave wages, and you call that "thuggish". From your own link:

They spied the group entering a building. Rushing in, they squeezed past the stunned financiers and marched around a meeting room chanting, "Dick Blum, you can't hide! We can see your greedy side!"

Blum, the company's chairman and a UC regent, is one of several high-profile university leaders to encounter the dramatic, in-your-face tactics of UC's lowest-paid workers.
That's the worst you have and what you call "thugs". LOL

So the lowest paid workers should take what they get, and STFU? Furthermore, they, at least, aren't trying to hide what they're doing. If you don't make noise, as poor people, you often don't get heard. they don't get the luxury of rubbing elbows with the higher ups to have their voices heard. Many peopl thought the same about the civil right movement, that those people should have just been queit and let time "work its magic". I have no problem whatsoever with their tactic, and nothing they did was thuggery or hidden. As a matter of fact, I couldn't find ANY instance of "thuggery" as you put it. And if you're going to point me to an article, don't point to one where the autors first sentence is I tend to be somewhat anti-union.

In my opinion, you've "exposed" nothing. These guys did everything in front of cameras, and didn't try to hide ANYTHING. What upsets me is the bashing of everything american while hypocritically claiming patriotism. Nothing you've posted rises to the level of "thugs". I thought I was going to read articles detailing baseball bat beating forcing people to join unions or the like. What you've posted is simply people shouting to have their voices heard.

Why the assumption that everyone who is unionized works at Walmart or is poor? That's clearly your elitist attitude taking over. Somehow, you have this weird idea that people who are not educated or have low-paying jobs have no right to speak up for themselves. Where does that come from?

Furthermore, if your "private pension retirement plan goes bust", don't look to help from anybody but yourself. Of course you'll claim that you don't need help from anyone else, but all of the people who claim to be so "pull yourselves up by the bootstraps" say the same thing.

Publicly traded companies must make an earnest effort to turn a profit by law. Reason? They're using "our" money (investors). Privately owned companies can do as they wish. You can start a private business and do as you wish. If you want to just make enough to make ends meet, you are free to do so. That's your decision. Just don't ask for public investors, ever. That will subject you to a whole different set of rules. And, quite frankly, I agree with those rules.

Then you should say the same about the crooks in Washington in Congress: they lie to the American people, cook the books, fail to pay their own taxes (John Kerry, Tim Geithner, and "Mr. Ethics" himself Charlie Rangel for starters), and take over companies like GM in a psuedo "bail out" to turn over controlling power to fellow cronies in union special interests.

No, the federal government is the worst I can think of. If it were run like a US corporation, it would have been bankrupt long ago and just about every powerful person in Congress in jail. But nobody seems to have any problems with the federal government out of control spending, fraud, and waste.

It must just feel a hell of a lot better to whine about CEO and executive pay (as if its anyone's damn business - if you don't own stocks or bonds in the company, keep your mouth SHUT) than look at where trillions of our tax dollars are wasted in a bloated, inefficient, red tape, bureaucratic nightmare known as the federal government.

Yeah I don't think you understand how business and CEO pay works at all. Nobody has ever paid "higher costs" because a CEO was paid "too much". Sorry things don't work that way.

There's often an air of mystery surrounding the head of a company, especially in a large corporation with thousands of employees. To some, the actual duties and responsibilities of a CEO may seem elusive. The truth is that a CEO is responsible for the entire business, from operations and financing to sales and marketing. Of course, other employees take on most of the tasks involved in actually running a business. But, if anything goes wrong within a company, the CEO will always take some heat.

Truth is CEO's have done more to keep costs down than otherwise. Why take all the risk if there is no reward? And no company is going to pay a CEO more than they can afford. Certainly not to the point that they would raise prices because of ONE MANS pay. Honestly, does that make sense to you? Out of all the factors out there that DIRECTLY impact consumer pricing, you pick CEO pay??

Years ago there was NEVER this vitriol about CEO pay. It's nobody's business. Then Obama and the Dummycrats came along and needed a scapegoat to cover up their economic failings. Ah ha!! After over a century of this thriving business model, we've figured it out, the CEO's are to blame!! BURN THEM!!!

I don't know what's worse, actually using that tactic or there being people stupid enough to go along with it.

Said another: "The problem is, we're living in a world where .220 hitters make $10 million, so look at what you have to pay when you finally find a .300 hitter."

Added a third: "It's not an excuse to say, 'Hey, the board gave it to me.' CEOs should be responsible too. That's leadership!"

Good for him. He has the right to an opinion, the same as anyone else. But it's only his opinion. If a company losing money gave a CEO "outrageous" sums of money, it was probably because they believed he could turn the company around. Or because they signed a contract when the times were good. Or because any number of reasons that's neither here nor there.

For every public story about CEO's and doomed companies, there are ten times as many unreported stories about CEO's making solid decisions and keeping their employers above water.

I think any company is stupid for agreeing to pay someone a bonus for not performing. The rest of us have to perform for our paychecks, why should the board ignore that when they hire a CEO? But they made that decision! Not much we can do about it except not invest in those companies or not buy their products/services. And since these are contracts, you can't break them (at least not without penalty).
