Chevrolet has once again redefined the family mid-size sedan with the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid. On top of two gas only turbocharged powertrains from the Malibu lineup, Chevrolet also offers an all-new Hybrid model that incorporates elements from the 2016 Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid powertrain. The new Malibu Hybrid has a 1.8-liter I-4 working in conjunction with a two-motor drive giving it the best of both worlds in terms of performance and fuel efficiency. It not only boasts an impressive 182 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque with both systems engaged, but also achieves an astonishing 48 mpg in the city and 45 highway. These EPA ratings put the Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid above the competing hybrid models of the Ford Fusion, Kia Optima and Toyota Camry, making it one of the best in its class.
The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid features a compact version of the Volt’s 18.4-kWh battery pack, which is a modest 1.5-kWh pack that only takes up as much space as a duffel bag and is located discreetly in the trunk. The lithium-ion battery pack is able to accelerate the vehicle up to 55 mph on electric power alone. With the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid designed to automatically operate at its most efficient capacity there is no need to plug-in or manually switch on EV mode. Like the Volt, the Malibu Hybrid generates and stores energy from the braking system that is also the most organic feeling and responsive system compared to other hybrids. This practical and elegant vehicle has options for industry leading safety and entertainment features. With regard to size, performance and fuel economy the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid is in a class of its own.
