D'oh! General Motors will discontinue the 2014 model-year Chevrolet Malibu Eco hybrid because of the improved fuel efficiency of the Chevy Malibu's new four-cylinder engine, Fox News says. The culprit, if you want to call it that, is the new stop-start system that shuts down the four-banger when the car is not moving. The result is that the base gas-powered Malibu gets 25 miles per gallon city and 36 mpg highway - the same fuel efficiency as the Malibu hybrid. Meanwhile, the four-cylinder versio

Following the announcement from Ford that Alan Mulally, CEO of the Ford Motor Company, would be driving to Washington from Detroit in a Ford Escape Hybrid, General Motors has today proclaimed that Rick Wagoner will make the trek in a Malibu Hybrid.

For the past couple of years, a variety of hybrid vehicles have been gradually infiltrating the fleet and generally performing well.

Found on the roads of metro Detroit, please say hello to the 2008 Chevy Malibu hybrid. As you can see in the pictures uploaded today to the GM Source website (where there are four large images of the car), the Malibu hybrid doesn't look much different than the standard new Malibu, which was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show back in January. The only reason we even know it's the hybrid version is the little hybrid badge that's now standard on the GM 'brids.
