Chevrolet’s electric lineup is filling out quite nicely. There was first the Chevrolet Volt, which just received an overhaul for the 2016 year. It’ll have a longer range as well as greater acceleration, among other improvements.
Then we heard about the Chevrolet Bolt concept, an electric crossover that was heading to production almost as quickly as it hit the auto show circuit.
Now it may not rhyme with Volt or Bolt but the brand new Chevrolet Malibu is also joining Chevy’s exciting electric lineup. The sedan will be available as a hybrid when it comes out this year. The Detroit Free Press reports that the new hybrid Malibu will “use the same technology as the new Volt for fuel efficiency.”
This technology will help the Malibu achieve 45 mpg. Those kind of numbers make the new hybrid Malibu “one of the most fuel-efficient mid-size sedans” in the market. In addition to the hybrid option, every model will be both bigger and lighter this time around.
