Production of Chevrolet Malibu ECO to Begin Early 2012
Chevrolet's most fuel-efficient Malibu ever will begin production early next year. In fact, the 2013 Malibu ECO with the eAssist system will be the first version of the Malibu to hit showrooms. The Malibu ECO gets an estimated 26 mpg city and 38 mpg on the highway. The ECO features eAssist technology that includes a light-weight lithium-ion battery to store energy during braking and an advanced inductive motor that provides an electric assist in certain driving situations - such as passing on the highway or climbing a grade. No word on a price yet from GM.
