    Chevrolet Prices 2016 Malibu Hybrid: Begins At $28,645*


    • Arrives in Spring with a $28,465 base price


    Chevrolet is gearing up to launch its newest hybrid, the Mailbu Hybrid. When it goes on sale in the spring, it will carry a base price of $28,645 (includes a $875 destination charge). Now compared to the standard Malibu, the Hybrid is about $6,145 more. The Malibu Hybrid is also slightly more expensive than the Ford Fusion Hybrid (about $3,000) and Toyota Camry Hybrid (about $2,000).

     

    But the high price does mean a lot of equipment for the hybrid. Standard on all models is 10 airbags, cruise control, push-button start with passive entry, a 7-inch touchscreen with Chevrolet MyLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, and a backup camera.

     

    Power comes from a 1.8L four-cylinder and an electric motor delivering a total output of 181. GM says the Malibu Hybrid is capable of getting 48 MPG in the City/45 MPG on the Highway/41 Combined. This is better than any other midsize hybrid sedan on sale.

    NEXT-GEN CHEVROLET MALIBU HYBRID LT STARTS AT $28,645

    • Projected to offer 48 MPG city using technologies borrowed from Volt


    DETROIT – The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid LT, which achieves a General Motors’-estimated 48 mpg city, will be available this spring with a starting price of $28,645.
    “The Malibu leverages knowledge and technology directly from the second-generation Chevrolet Volt,” said Steve Majoros, marketing director of Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “By leveraging technology, we are broadening our level of expertise and lessons learned to bring consumers a world-class hybrid.”
    With an all-new, hybrid powertrain that uses a slightly modified drive unit and electric motors used in the 2016 Chevrolet Volt, the Malibu Hybrid offers a GM-estimated 48 mpg city, 45 mpg highway – and 47 mpg combined, unsurpassed in the midsize car segment. Official EPA estimates are pending.
    The Malibu Hybrid model includes standard Chevrolet MyLink Radio with 7-inch diagonal color touch screen, available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a rear vision camera. CarPlay and Android Auto are products of Apple and Google and their terms, data plan rates and privacy statements apply and require a compatible smartphone.
    Other standard equipment on the Malibu Hybrid includes 10 airbags, cruise control and push-button start with passive entry. Anew Ecotec 1.8L hybrid optimized direct-injected engine is mated with a two-motor electric drive unit.
    The 2016 Malibu Hybrid offers several new-to-Malibu safety technologies including Lane Keep Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking and Low Speed Front Automatic Braking. Teen Driver, available on all Malibu models, helps support safe driving habits by muting the audio or any device paired with the vehicle when front-seat occupants aren’t wearing their seat belts. It is also the first in-vehicle system in the industry that lets parents view information on how their teenagers drove the vehicle, which can be a teaching tool to reinforce safe driving habits.
    The 2016 Malibu is built at the GM Fairfax Assembly facility, in Kansas City, Kan. from globally sourced parts.

    When I first read $6100 I didn't think it was all that bad but I guess I did't realize how affordable the Camry and Fusion hybrids are now. Now $6100 looks more expensive.

    Over all I am happy for this sedan if it does deliver what GM says it will. 

     

    One thing I do not understand is how does 48 mpg city and 45 mpg highway equal 41 mpg average?

     

    My math says this equal out to 46.5 mpg average.

    Science dfelt, science. Nobody knows how the combined ratings are calculated. They just are. 

    Sounds like Squirrely mathematics to me.

    Malibu hybrid is now a great upsell or down sell from people walking in the door to look at volts

    'Do they make a bigger volt"?

    "Why yes they do, and it's cheaper, you don't even have to plug it in"

    ;)

    Except the Malibu cannot drive on electric only power for "X" number of miles like the Volt. Two different types of cars IMO.

    This comment is more of a collective meh over up-selling hybrid efficiency that all makes do. 

     

    I take all hybrid ratings with a grain of salt. It's largely how you drive the vehicle, more city usually = more efficient.

     

    Even more so, the marginal increase in efficiency equates to peanuts in savings over a competing hybrid unless you keep the vehicle for a long time.

     

    Sure, advertise 45+ mpg combined, but even the now defunct Honda Accord could be beat that on the ratings, yet driven in many ways couldn't follow up that claim.

     

    What's good though is that this vehicle looks the part, but imagine Chevy has traded some go for the sake of some efficiency gains.

     

    1.8L of gas engine sounds pretty gutless to me. But here's the real play. The way this hybrid is equipped, you have to get a $25,000 Malibu, not the base LS.

     

    With OPEC on a industry killing spree - do you really need the efficiency right now?

     

    Or do you haggle off a couple hundred dollars over the other guys by saying this new model is in some ways superior? They're still excellent in their own right.

     

    I just think that electrification needs expensive gas to work, and OPEC knows THAT too.

    A 2016 Malibu Hybrid has a 13 gallon tank and advertises 45 miles per gallon. That averages 585 miles per tank. It retails for $30k.

    A 1996 Impala SS has a 23 gallon tank and advertises 25 miles per gallon. That averages 575 mile per tank. You can get a gently used one for less than $15k.

    I think I will buy myself a 1996 Impala SS sometime next year.

    Not exactly the same, but that's my point.  Someone will come in and think 'the volt is too small' and then you just qualify them, do you really need the plug in?  Would a cheaper car with more room make sense to you?

     

    You can snag an electric intender who is not yet ready to pay the full price for a plug in, so chevy can downsell and get those people.  They may not come in wanting a hybrid, but if you show them the plug in and back them down to the hybrid then that MSRP on the Bu Hybrid looks like a bargain, and they haven't compared it to the Fusion or Camry.  Saying it has 'a good part of the same hybrid system as the volt' adds value because its not the same 'low grade hybrid' like the fusion or camry.  

     

    Not everyone who comes in to look at the volt is going to decide they need the plug in.  When you get the people to make the decision, then you can downsell the Malibu and they will think you are giving them more value.

    I would imagine that a lot who come in on a Volt also don't know about the additional cost of the faster chargers and then balk.

    Eh, people salient to Toyota hybrids already would not call variations of the Hybrid Synergy Drive low tech at all.

     

    And the Volt in hybrid mode gets abysmal mileage for a hybrid. It's only sell is the electric range.

     

    And Fusion has tech from the Energi, which is a pretty svelte plug-in sedan as well. It doesn't have an epic range, but atleast it still has a conventional sedan shape.

     

    Anyone buying a hybrid right now is really looking at long-term fuel costs and other operating costs. Marketing stunts will not fool anyone.

    Value isn't conjured out of thin air, and for hybrids, like I already mentioned competitors cost less, so that's in consideration too.

     

    And hybrid sales everywhere are tanking as well...

    This new Malibu looks sort of ugly I think.  $28k for a hybrid seems reasonable, but gas is also dirt cheap right now so why bother buying it.  Might as well just get the regular gas engine.  Should offer all wheel drive, more people want that over hybrid tech.

    Yeah, from some angles it looks, different I'll just say.

     

    I really think the next-gen hybrid sedans should be AWD.  The RAV4 hybrid is AWD for example, but there's no mechanical linkage to the rear and the engine.

     

    AWD as well as being the fuel-efficient and performance leader in the line-up is a decent sell.

     

    It's all about what OPEC wants. They want no competition, and definitely, with all this efficiency around the world, not only are they selling oil cheap, they're selling less of it to many markets.

     But then for states with tax breaks like Washington where you pay no sales tax plus alternative fuel tax break and the federal tax break you loose 12,000 in savings. That makes a hard sale to then try and move them to a bigger hybrid that they have to pay sales tax on and does not have a federal credit.

    And the Volt in hybrid mode gets abysmal mileage for a hybrid. It's only sell is the electric range.

     

    Where do you get that the VOLT in Hybrid mode gets abysmal mileage?

     

    Green Car reports in real world driving they average 41 MPG in extended range mode. That is pretty awesome.

     

    http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1096237_2016-chevrolet-volt-50-mile-range-41-mpg-five-seats-all-new-photos

     

    Plug in car says when you take pure electric mode into account with the extended mode you are at a real world of 50mpg.

     

    http://www.plugincars.com/epa-rates-chevy-volt-93-mpg-or-60-mpg-or-35-mpg-depending-106498.html

     

    GM's own VOLT web site is conservative stating an average of 40 mpg.

     

    http://gm-volt.com/chevy-volt-faqs/

     

    No matter how you look at it, the car delivers well on giving great MPG and performance fun.

     

    So how do you state this is abysmal?

    The Volt's a more livable day to day car now.

     

    It's a very fine line trying to differentiate a Malibu. It's bigger but it doesn't have a hatch.

     

    But again, because of CAFE automakers are making efficient iterations of every vehicle, they have to and hybridization is one way to do it.

    Anyone who doesn't charge the Volt often or doesn't at all, won't get the main benefit, and should buy a proper hybrid.

    Exactly.

    Remember , malibu has 'the same technology' as the volt, and you don't need to spend extra on a charger to save gas!

    Let me cut through the collective bulls $h! here and get this back to reality. Haters are just going to hate.

     

    The Malibu is a bigger deal than most people realize. This is a well build excellect perfroming Hybrid. It has looks that are as good as any normal car and better than most. It also is priced to sell.  This car if marketed well should make a major splash in the segment.

    ​You then look at Chevy that will be offering a Bolt. Malibu Hybrid and Volt it will have something to match or beat most other brands in price and performance. These cars will reach out to many who would never consider Chevy before because they had nothing to offer in their price range.

     

    Now watch as this technology will advance and grow as it is added to models at Buick and Cadillac where their price points can offer even more range and better performance.

    ​Moving forward the auto industry is not going to be all electric like some Tesla Zealots like to profess. The future will be made up of a combination of ICE, Diesel, Hybrid and EV vehicles. There is no one silver bullet barring any unforeseen developments at this point and it will take a combination of these to satisfy the public as a whole. GM has it going right now and if they can advance these technologies they will be a major player for a long time to come.

    ​I really see these new technology vehicles bringing in new customers who what more than what a Prius offers. Many buy it because it was the best one and at for a while really the only option out there. The offering of more room and non bad science experiment styling will go a long way to lure customers into giving this car a try. GM really just needs to get the word out and people into the show room.

     

    GM also needs to do as they are now with the Volt and focus this on the markets that buy these kinds of cars first. If you can make this popular in California it will grow and expand to other markets.

    I bet the Hybrid has less than a 10% take rate and probably more like 6% take rate. So not a lot of sales, not going g to get people excited about a Malibu or bring them in the showroom. If fuel economy was the #1 concern of most buyers the top selling vehicles would not be pick ups and SUVs.

    With Porsche saying that their sports car sedan 100% EV will be achieving 310 miles until the battery drains and Tesla's own Model S has 265 mile range and in very optimal conditions may hit 300 miles and technologies that allow wireless charging along with super powerful chargers themselves improving charge times (Porsche is boasting a 80% battery refill in 20 minutes...) Im not too sure about your perception of the future being 100% accurate...

     

    And the reason why Im being picky on you....is because you started your argument very arrogantly hatin' on so called haterz while you yourself is hatin' on "Tesla zealots...

     

    Now...you may be correct that there is not just one solution to the battery/EV engineering dilemma....more than one way to skin a cat type deal...and I may agree with you that a GM Voltec solution is a mighty one and one that will probably exist and continue to improve and challenge 100% pure electrics....but...please....dont behave like all electrics and batteries and superchargers and wireless charging will not improve either...

     

    You know...Montreal to Boston takes me about 5 hours....at 100 KPH..that equates to approximately 500 kilometers...or...in miles if you want...at 65 MPH...that would take me about 4.75 hours...which is 308 miles...

     

    And if you google to see the distance between Montreal to Boston:

     

    4 h 49 min (494.6 km) via I-89 S
    4 h 58 min (514.9 km) via I-93 S
    5 h 48 min (546.1 km) via I-89 S and I-91 S
     
    and Boston to Montreal
     
    4 h 51 min (307.2 mi) via I-89 N
    5 h (319.2 mi) via I-93 N
    5 h 47 min (338.5 mi) via I-91 N and I-89 N
     
     

    Yeah...optimal conditions...a Porsche or even the Tesla takes me to Boston directly....ALMOST...

    You may laugh at this....but...a full tank full of gas in ANY car that I have ever owned took me to Boston and then I had to fill up in Boston...so....its the charge times that plays a difference...but...have you calculated how much time it actually takes to fill up an empty tank to a very full tank?

    It actually does take 3-5 minutes...so...20 minutes for 80%...you know...that gap is closing pretty quickly...isnt it?

     

    No...we are not there yet...but range anxiety  on a Tesla or that Porsche as we speak is just a mild concern rather than full blown anxiety...therefore...your own zealousness for hatin' on Tesla zealots clouds your otherwise sound argument...

      Ahead of its spring launch, Chevrolet has revealed the starting price for the 2018 Equinox. The base L front-wheel drive model will kick off at $24,475 (includes destination). This model will feature a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque.
      Those looking for more power or fuel economy will need to wait until the second quarter when the turbo 2.0L and turbodiesel 1.6L four-cylinders go on sale. Front-wheel and all-wheel will be on offer. As for trims, the Equinox will be offered in L, LS, LT, and Premier. 
      “In a word, crossover customers want one thing: everything. From comfort and connectivity to efficient performance and safety, the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox delivers on all counts,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing for Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers.
      We'll likely have more details on pricing and features as we get closer to the Equinox's launch.

      The standard 1.5L engine will be available at launch, with the 2.0L Turbo and diesel options available in the second quarter of 2017. The 2.0L engine will be coupled to GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission, offering an exciting driving experience with more horsepower and torque.

      New Safety Alert Seat New Surround Vision New Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator New Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking New Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert   Rear Cross Traffic Alert Rear Seat Reminder and Teen Driver are also offered. Rear Seat Reminder can provide an alert when the rear doors are used during or just before a trip, prompting you to double-check for valuables left in the back seat when you exit the vehicle. Teen Driver allows parents to monitor driving habits and facilitates discussions to help encourage better driving habits, even when parents are not in the vehicle.
