2009 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid Review

It seems like such a long time since that early introduction of the 2007 Saturn Vue Green Line, but that vehicle proved to be an accurate harbinger of things to come…or at least part of what was has come. I was among the first journalists to drive General Motors’ inaugural production hybrid way back in February of 2006.

Today, hybrids are available from every major manufacturer, they work well, and they’re getting less expensive. In other words, hybrids are entering the mainstream of the automotive world.

Compared to other hybrid designs, mild hybrids deliver the smallest gain in fuel economy, but these gains range between 10 to 20-percent.

Plus, this current crop of two-mode hybrids have the built-in strength to complete impressive feats of towing, with some SUVs rated to trailer three tons.
