Saturn - CV1
Rüsselsheim / Detroit – The Saturn CV1 is an efficient multi-function concept that explores innovations for Saturn’s expanding lineup. The vehicle will act as a catalyst for dialogue between Saturn and current or future customers.
”Saturn’s mission is to develop friendly, thoughtful, intuitive vehicles,” said Kate Zak, Saturn design manager. ”The CV1-- which stands for Saturn’s first concept vehicle --allows customers to consider new features they’d like in their next Saturn.”
Designed for maximum versatility, the Saturn CV1 features a flexible interior that offers spacious seating for five, plus two fold-down jump seats that are perfect for kids. The rear seat slides and folds flat to maximize passenger or cargo space. Unique bi-fold doors allow easy access to the rear seats and also make it easy to load bulky items into the vehicle. The CV1 is designed to easily accommodate child seats or a folded wheelchair, increasing its appeal to a diverse range of customers.
The CV1’s 2.2-liter dual overhead camshaft inline four-cylinder engine meets ultra-low emission vehicle standards. Teamed with an advanced continuously variable transmission (CVT) and all-wheel-drive, it provides exceptional performance, all-weather security and high fuel efficiency. Safety is enhanced with smart front and side airbags, four-point restraints for the front seats, run-flat tires and a center instrument pod that places critical information closer to the driver’s sight line. Unique storage systems and innovative interior features bring the best of modern industrial design to Saturn’s CV1, making it a fun, functional place for the driver and passengers.
”The Saturn CV1 is just one indication of the innovation at Saturn as we expand our product portfolio over the next decade,” said Zak.
