As you may or may not already know, a Cruze Diesel is already in the works over at Chevrolet, but some more information has been leaked for the ever-popular Chevy Cruze! A plug-in hybrid model is in the works and is expected to debut as early as 2014!
Australia’s GoAuto reports that the Cruze Hybrid will be the typical hybrid type vehicle where the electric and gas-powered motors will work together. This is unlike the Volt where the electric mtor is what powers the vehicle all the time with the electric motor just generating power to the electric motor.
Because of the strong sells of the Chevy Cruze and an upcoming diesel model, a Cruze Hyrbrid is just what the doctor ordered. Also, an all-electric model of the Cruze is being experimented with in South Korea, but as of now, it is just experimental. Who knows, things can change in a matter of a day with what will actually happen. As far as a Hybrid Cruze goes though, it will be interesting to see what type of economy it will get!
