GM Has No Plans for a Chevy Malibu Coupe

GM is set to debut the all-new 2013 Chevy Malibu sedan in the U.S. early next year, but even though Honda and Nissan offer coupe versions of their midsize sedans, GM has no plans for a Malibu coupe.

It was reported that GM was mulling the idea of offering a coupe version of the new Malibu, but according to Ed Welburn, GM’s vice president of global design, it is not currently in the works.

Welburn recently told Inside Line, “A Malibu coupe could be a pretty nice car. But it is not in the plan right now.”

Michael Albano, Chevy’s PR chief also stated in an email about the Malibu coupe, “No plans at this moment for anything more than a sedan.”
