    General Motors Scraps Chevrolet Malibu, Switches Focus to Electric Vehicles

    OLIVIA RONDEAU 10 May 2024110

    General Motors (GM) — the manufacturer of Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC vehicles — has confirmed the end of one of the most popular sedans in the U.S. as the company switches focus to electric vehicles (EVs).

    The Chevrolet Malibu, dubbed “the last midsize car made by a Detroit automaker” by the Associated Press, (AP) is heading for the junkyard, the outlet reported.

    The iconic car, first introduced in 1964, sold about 130,000 units in 2023, down from 230,000 sales in 2016 — with many of those being at a low profit to car rental companies.

    SUVs and trucks now dominate the auto market, with traditional cars making up less than 20 percent of total U.S. vehicle sales, CNN reported, citing figures from Cox Automotive.

    Midsize cars accounted for only eight percent of new U.S. vehicle sales in 2023, down from 22 percent in 2007, the AP reported.

    In its crusade to become a staple in American homes, GM said it sold more than ten million Malibus in the nine generations since its introduction.

    Yeah, isn't that funny?

    It's almost like the government, which is made up of "representatives" who happily take campaign contributions from oil companies, passed law after law which made it hard and unprofitable to sell cars, but easy and profitable to sell "light" trucks (which are heavier, taller and less aerodynamic than cars). And all in the name of CAFE standards which are allegedly there to force us to use less fuel but, like just about every law that gets passed these days, does the exact opposite of what it's alleged to accomplish. Good for the oil companies. Bad for the people maimed in rollover crashes who could otherwise have been in a less topheavy car.

    Yeah, man. Other countries don't backdoor outlaw cars.

    You may think that's funny strange, but ExxonMobil thinks it's laugh all the way to the bank funny.
