2020 Chevrolet Malibu drops hybrid option

The hybrid powertrain has been dropped from the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu range, so the only way to get an electrified Chevrolet now is to buy the Bolt EV.

A Chevrolet spokesperson confirmed the Malibu Hybrid’s to Green Car Reports.

The Malibu Hybrid was introduced for the 2016 model year, and had a total 182hp (136kW) from its 1.8L I4 and electric motor. It had a top EV speed of 55mph (89km/h), but the small 1.5kWh battery limited the amount of pure electric driving you could do.

The Malibu Hybrid had a 46mpg (5.1L/100km) EPA rating, which isn’t quite as good as the Honda Accord Hybrid (48mpg) or Toyota Camry Hybrid (52mpg).
