Johnson Controls–Saft Advanced Power Solutions, LLC, a joint venture between Tier 1 automotive supplier Johnson Controls and Saft is one of two companies to which GM awarded advanced battery development contracts to design and test lithium-ion batteries for use in the Saturn Vue Green Line plug-in hybrid SUV. (The other company is A123Systems.) (Earlier post.)

The car will also showcase new seating and storage systems to improve utilization of space, a new instrument cluster and display system, and an interface solution to link mobile devices to the vehicle. The concept car fulfills the requirements of the 2015 ELV directive that stipulates 95% recyclability.
