Arriving in next spring, the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid will start at $28,645, Chevy announced. Offered only in LT trim level, the greenest member of the Malibu family will command a $2,750 premium over its conventional sibling, a figure that puts in squarely in the middle of the midsize gas/electric sedan set. One place where it will exceed its rivals is fuel economy. Fitted with a 1.8-liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine and a pair of electric motors that are based on those used in the new Chevy Volt, the 2016 Malibu Hybrid develops a combined 182 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. Although formal EPA stats have not yet been released, Chevrolet projects it will return 48 mpg in the city, 45 mpg on the highway and earn a 47 mpg combined rating.
