7th Generation: 2009 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid
A hybrid joined the family for 2009, with an electric motor/generator combined with a 2.4-liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine and a 4-speed automatic transmission. The first Malibu Hybrid shut off the gasoline engine when the vehicle came to a stop to reduce fuel consumption while idling. Malibu was the top-selling General Motors passenger car for 2010, selling almost 200,000 units.
