Popular Sedan Will Soon Be A Thing Of The Past

History of the Chevy Malibu

Not many vehicles can say they've had a run as long as the tried and true Chevy Malibu.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the Chevy Malibu was originally produced in 1964 and remained a staple until 1983, a solid 20-year run.

After sitting on the sidelines for a few years, Chevy brought back the Malibu in 1997, and needless to say, it has been a staple in the car community ever since.

I'm not a huge car guy, but I have always had a soft spot for the Malibu.

Especially the old classics!

The End of an Era

However, that legacy is about to come to an end after its most recent 27-year run, as Chevy shifts toward electric vehicles.

According to Car and Driver, the production of the Chevy Malibu will end in November 2024.

This comes after Chevy announced that it will focus more on electric vehicles at its Fairfax assembly plant.

According to Car and Driver magazine, Chevy has sold more than 10 million units of this popular sedan over the years.

So, to wrap up, if you'd like to get in on the end of an era and purchase a Chevy Malibu, don't snooze because this will be the last year. You see them on a car lot near you.
