This week, General Motors proudly produced the very first all-new Chevrolet Malibu at its plant in Incheon, Korea. The eighth-generation Malibu draws on design elements from Chevy’s Corvette and Camaro to combine the look and handling of a sports car with the sensibility of a family sedan. GM Korea President and CEO Mike Arcamone was on hand to celebrate the occasion alongside Labor Union Chairman Ki Min and company employees.
GM will donate a Chevy Malibu to each of the fifteen colleges and universities competing in EcoCAR 2. Team members will spend the next three years redesigning the vehicle to reduce its environmental impact and fuel consumption.
Sales of the new Malibu, which is Chevy’s first global midsize sedan, will begin next month in Korea, and the vehicle will eventually become the brand’s top-of -the-range offering across the world. To learn more about the first all-new Malibu, check out GM’s announcement.
