News Plug To Be Pulled On Chevrolet Malibu In 2024

Plug To Be Pulled On Chevrolet Malibu In 2024

We don’t mean to be mean but they could do it sooner… The Chevrolet Malibu as we know it will be phased out in 5 years.

Truth be told, we were surprised when we learned of GM’s plans to kill off a number of cars including the Chevy Cruze and Chevy Volt. Although the Cruze has never been a money-maker, we’ve long thought it was a better product overall than the Chevy Malibu  despite a very recent refresh.

The news comes from Automotive News where it goes over GM’s future product pipeline and where the Malibu disappears by 2024. GM has huge plans to introduce electrified vehicles by 2023 which is why we thought the death of the established Volt to be premature.

When we say “the Malibu as we know it” will be phased out in 5 years, we’re referring to a petrol-powered iteration. According to the product pipeline, an electric Malibu-like vehicle could become a thing – keeping the Malibu nameplate going could be a wise decision for the American market.

Sales of the Chevrolet Malibu have been anything but encouraging for a number of years and it looks like its days are numbered. Finally, it would appear as though said Malibu will get a final makeover for 2022 before going the way of the Dodo.
