2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco Boasts Big Fuel Economy Numbers
We at Dellenbach Motors don't need to tell you how the rising price of gasoline is causing many in the Fort Collins area to feel anxious every time they have to fill up. Many automakers offer solutions like hybrids or electric cars. Chevrolet is among those with electric options such as the Chevrolet Volt, but there are many out there who aren't ready to make the switch to owning a hybrid or EV-based model. That's where the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco enters the picture.
With eAssist technology, the new Malibu Eco delivers the a trustworthy compromise between hybrid and gas-powered vehicles. A small electric motor assists the standard four-cylinder engine by giving it a boost of electric power when needed. To do that, a 115-volt lithium-ion battery powers a 15 horsepower motor that gives the Malibu Eco an extra kick when accelerating on the highway.
Now that you have familiarity with how the technology works, we'll get down to the important stuff like the numbers. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released official fuel economy numbers, and the Malibu Eco boasted an impressive 25 miles per gallon city, with up to 37 miles per gallon on the highway. That places the new Chevy sedan three marks above previous editions of the Chevrolet Malibu.
