Am I looking at this wrong, or did they just add a battery, a new dashboard, a different back window and some blue lighting to the Malibu? Will they be built on the same production lines?

Disappointed they changed the overall shape and contour.:mad:

They also made it a lot smaller on a completely different platform with a hatchback and completely different body panels. Other than that, though, you're right, it is just an electric Malibu.

Wait, a series hybrid electric Malibu would be a bad thing? I would take one in a NY minute! We need plug-in cars. Ugly, cheap ones and beautiful Tesla-like ones. What's the matter with you people? Don't you get it yet?
I agree... bring them on! .. every size, shape, price range! :)

Nope its based off the delta 2 platform which isnt even out yet. Its a evolved version of the delta platform which the Saturn ion, saturn astra colbalt and G5 are based off of.

The evolved platform will have its first car the Cruze based on it and then the Volt.
Its lighter stronger and easier to produce then the first Delta.

The only thing the volt has in common with the malibu is the fact that the last gen malibu chasis is used to test its drivetrain.
