GM has unveiled the hybrid version of its upcoming 2008 Chevy Malibu sedan. The sedan will look exactly like the non-hybrid version and will be powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The new hybrid version of the Malibu is powered by a 164 horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder that delivers 24mpg in the city and 32mpg on the highway. Unfortunately that is only 2mpg better than the regular 4-cylinder Malibu, so what’s the point?
Visually the only way you will be able to distinguish the hybrid from the non-hybrid is low-resistance tires, hybrid badges and unique interior gauges.
Production of the hybrid will begin in October, but pricing hasn’t been released.
