2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid Achieves Best-in-Class Fuel Efficiency

Best-in-Class Fuel Efficiency

The stylish, high-tech, 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid has received a best-in-class fuel efficiency rating from the EPA, getting a 46 mpg combined rating.

Not too long ago you had to choose between having a car that was efficient, high-tech, or stylish. Now, however, you can have it all at the same time and it won’t cost a fortune. If you don’t believe it, just take a look at the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid.

This stylish, high-tech, mid-size sedan has received a best-in-class fuel efficiency rating from the EPA. The 2016 Malibu Hybrid should give drivers 46 mpg combined. The hybrid system in the Malibu borrows some technology from the Volt to allow it to use electric-only propulsion in certain driving scenarios.

“The Malibu Hybrid offers outstanding fuel efficiency and integrates the latest technology to give customers a world-class hybrid,” said Steve Majoros, marketing director of Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers, in a statement. “Combined with a number of available, leading safety and connectivity features, it’s a great choice for those who want exceptional efficiency with Chevrolet’s signature value.”

In addition to its excellent efficiency, the Malibu Hybrid delivers stellar good looks along with great technology, including the available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi that allows up to seven devices to connect at once. And, perhaps one of its best features, it has a starting price of only $28,645.

Help Keep Indiana Beautiful this Month

Keep Indiana Beautiful

This April, let’s help keep Indiana beautiful during the annual Trash Bash event. This event starts on April 16th and lasts through May 10th.

Now that spring is here and the temperatures are warming, you have probably appreciated all the greenery and beautiful flowers that are blooming everywhere. But you probably don’t appreciate all the trash along our roads. Nobody likes seeing this, which is why April is recognized as Keep America Beautiful month.

This April, let’s help keep Indiana beautiful during the annual Trash Bash event. This event starts on April 16th and lasts through May 10th. INDOT workers along with Adopt-A-Highway volunteers, and Department of Correction crews will be working hard to clean up Indiana’s highways.

According to INDOT, last year, crews collected 22,542 bags of trash and 8,456 cubic yards of debris along 1,151 miles of highways and roads.

In addition to this organized highway clean-up effort, you can help prevent littering in the first place by setting an example for others, especially your children. You should keep a trash bag or container in your car so you aren’t tempted to throw anything out of the window. If you are part of a local civic group, you could encourage that group to become part of the Adopt-A-Highway program to do your part to keep Indiana and America beautiful.
