San Francisco, California – The all-new 2008 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid made its debut at Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game in San Francisco. The vehicle will go into production in October.
The system will be available as a powertrain option, using a 2.4-litre Ecotec four-cylinder engine and four-speed transmission with GM’s Hybrid System. The hybrid system provides additional power when needed to boost the gasoline engine’s output; it will also shut off the engine at idle, and recharge the battery pack through regenerative braking.
