Volt, Malibu Eco Make ‘Best Green Cars List’

We wanted to share this great article from Chevrolet in the News about the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco and the Chevrolet Volt.

While many auto brands brag about their fuel-efficient new products, only one managed to have two separate vehicles named to the KBB.com 10 Best Green Cars of 2012 roster: Chevrolet. Both the Chevy Volt and the 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco earned their way onto the list, thanks to their uncompromising approach to delivering high fuel-economy scores and customer-satisfying ownership experiences.

The Volt, of course, can provide more than 35 miles of all-electric, zero-emissions driving on a , only one managed to have two separate vehicles named to the KBB.com 10 Best Green Cars of 2012 roster: Chevrolet. Both the Chevy Volt and the 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco earned their way onto the list, thanks to their uncompromising approach to delivering high fuel-economy scores and customer-satisfying ownership experiences.

The Volt, of course, can provide more than 35 miles of all-electric, zero-emissions driving on a single charge, and it does so while posting an EPA line of 95 MPGe city/93 MPGe highway/94 MPGe combined. However, if its battery ever runs low, a super-efficient gas-powered I4 engine seamlessly kicks into operation to deliver hundreds of more miles of driving ability—while still achieving EPA marks of 40 mpg city/35 mpg highway/37 mpg combined.

As explained by the experts at KBB.com, “With its small gasoline engine on standby to generate electricity should the batteries run out of juice, the Volt conquers ‘range anxiety’ and makes for a car that can be filled with gas at a pump and electricity from an outlet. Sleek looks inside and out, plus room for four passengers and cargo complete the package.”

The Malibu Eco also takes the high-tech route to better gas mileage, courtesy of eAssist. This technology stores up electricity via the car’s regenerative braking system, then uses it to help provide added power during certain driving scenarios. The result is better fuel-economy than a standard gas engine, but at a lower cost than a full hybrid, since the Malibu Eco “seemingly bridges the efficiency gap between the two categories.” A standard start/stop system, which can cut off the flow of fuel when the vehicle would otherwise be idling, also helps matters. The bottom line: EPA ratings of 25 mpg city/37 mpg highway/29 mpg combined.

Cruze, Malibu Among Nation’s Most Comfortable

Elizabeth City, NC – In today’s automotive marketplace, drivers looking for a particularly comfortable new vehicle don’t have to spend a particularly large sum of money, and they don’t have to sacrifice fuel economy, either. They do, however, need to visit their local Chevy dealerships, since the Bowtie brand recently put two vehicles—the Chevrolet Cruze and the new 2013 Chevy Malibu—on KBB.com’s honor roll of “10 Most Comfortable Cars under $30,000.”

The Cruze earned its prize by “including an acoustic-laminated windshield, triple-layered door seals and wheel-well liners for a quiet cabin. And supportive front seats matched with perhaps the smoothest highway ride in the segment. For compact comfort, the Chevy Cruze is a big winner.”

Further enhancing the car’s comfort are features like hydraulic ride bushings and an isolated engine cradle, both of which help reduce noise, vibration and harshness in the Cruze’s cabin.

Boasting an MSRP that starts at $16,800, the Cruze also is a big winner in the EPA’s fuel-economy ratings. In fact, the Cruze Eco—priced from $19,325—leads its segment in highway fuel efficiency and showcases overall marks of up to 28 mpg city/42 mpg highway/33 mpg combined.

The redesigned 2013 Malibu stood out for KBB.com as a vehicle that offered “the practicality and affordability of a typical midsize sedan along with a roomy, upscale cockpit and a suspension system capable of taming America’s endless supply of dilapidated asphalt.” Notable as well: Chevy claims the much-improved Malibu will be the quietest car the brand has ever sold, thanks to extensive sound-reduction measures and world-class aerodynamics.

Chevy dealers are currently offering the new Malibu in its own 37-mpg Eco model, with an MSRP of $25,235, while the rest of the lineup scheduled to start reaching dealers later this year.
