GM Ending Production of Malibu to Focus on Bolt EV

2018 Chevrolet Malibu

It’s 60 and out for the Chevy Malibu.

After 60 years, General Motors announced it will end production this year of the last sedan still sold by Chevrolet.

The world’s largest automaker announced production of the Malibu will end in November. The factory that produces it, the Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas, is being reconfigured to build a new generation of the Chevrolet Bolt EV, the company said.

That means GM’s Chevrolet brand will sell only trucks, SUVs, and the Corvette, a two-seat sports car, in the United States, according to a report on CNN.

Chevy’s close competitor, Ford, made a similar move years ago when it stopped selling the Taurus and Fusion sedans, leaving the two-door Mustang as the only traditional car in its line-up, according to the network, which also said Chevrolet stopped making its Mustang competitor, the Camaro, last year.
