48 MPG: 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid’s Fuel Efficiency

At the recent New York Auto Show, Chevrolet showed off the 2016 Malibu Hybrid. This hybrid will borrow some technology from the all-new Volt to make it the most efficient Malibu ever. The Malibu Hybrid’s fuel efficiency is expected to reach 48 mpg city—the highest in the segment.

“Fuel efficiency is important to our customers, especially in the midsize segment and with an estimated 48 mpg city rating, the Malibu Hybrid delivers,” said GM President Dan Ammann in a statement ahead of the Malibu’s reveal.

This efficiency is achieved with a new 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a two-motor drive unit based on what is found in the 2016 Chevrolet Volt. In total, the engine and motors give the Malibu Hybrid 182 horsepower. Powering the hybrid system is a 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. This will be able to drive the Malibu hybrid on electricity alone at speeds up to 55 mph.

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid will be arriving on showroom floors in spring 2016 and will be built here in the United States at the Fairfax Assembly plant in Kansas City, Kansas.

New 2016 Chevy Malibu Hybrid Model Announced

When Chevrolet revealed its 2016 Malibu at the New York International Auto Show, experts and enthusiasts were impressed enough by the many upgrades and modern styling. In fact, the new Malibu weighs a full 300 pounds less than its predecessor.

But more details from Chevy have consumers much more excited. The latest word is that there will be a hybrid variant of the model, one of the most fuel-efficient cars to hit the market.

The 2016 Chevy Malibu hybrid will reportedly get a combined 45 miles per gallon and will go on sale in the spring of next year. It’s not really a surprise that Chevrolet would make a hybrid version of one of its most popular vehicles, which would fit right next to the latest Volt and the brand new Bolt in the 2016 lineup.

Teen Driver Safety Technology Helps Parents Fight the Good Fight

With Chevrolet’s latest technology, the only fear is that teenagers might start seeing their own parents as Big Brother. But really, it’s all done in the name of love.

Teen Driver Safety Technology is, at heart, an educational tool for parents. The new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu comes equipped with this new technology, which gives parents the ability to monitor their teenagers’ driving performance. Parents then have the opportunity to go over the driving report together, marking a great starting point for a conversation about safe driving habits.

In addition to being able to read a driving report, parents can activate a function that prevents the stereo from coming on until all occupants of the car have fastened their seat belts. They can also implement a speed limit, above which an alert will sound to let the teen driver know that he or she is going too fast.

Driving is an enormous responsibility that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s good to see an automaker going to the trouble of helping parents with such a grave undertaking.
