Chevy Malibu Ecologic
A little while back we told you about the Chevy Malibu Ecologic. The idea is basically that the Malibu is a very environmentally friendly vehicle from production all the way until the end of its life. And now, the 2013 Malibu in Green Bay is able to tell consumers exactly how “green” it is. The new Malibu features a window sticker that explains its Ecologic score – something consumers throughout the industry appreciate.
So how good is the Chevy Malibu Ecologic score? Well, the entire vehicle is actually 85% recyclable. And the process with which the Malibu is made is also very environmentally friendly. The most common transmissions and engines for the new Malibu are both made at facilities that are 100% green. This means that all waste from the facility is either reused, recycled or converted into energy for the facility. It’s an initiative that is sweeping GM facilities all over the map, and one will no doubt have huge benefits on the planet in many years to come.
Even the assembly plant of the Malibu has been lauded for its energy-reduction and recycling efforts. And all three plants are EPA Energy Star certified as well, assuring that they live up to the Chevy Malibu Ecologic standards.
Some of what would normally be material waste at the facilities actually turns into productive pieces of the Malibu. Shredded tires used in testing are combined with other materials to create baffles that deflect air and water under the hood. The scraps have also become useful in other parts of society.
While we have a great selection of new cars in Green Bay, the Chevy Malibu Ecologic is one factor that could sway your decision one way or the other. But, check out our cars in person and see for yourself!
