Chevy May Ramp up Production of Malibu Hybrids

Chevy Malibu HybridGM is considering adding a third shift to their Orion plant, which has already seen a substantial growth in it's production. GM has seen a 110 percent growth in sales of the Chevy Malibu and a 36 percent increase in the Pontiac G6, which are currently built at the Orion plant.

GM's U.S. dealers had a 36-day supply of Malibus at the beginning of May, which was substantially lower than inventories for all other GM vehicles, according to Automotive News.
The Malibu Hybrid is currently built in Fairfax, Kansas. But, given the current state of gas prices leading to an increasing interest in hybrids, GM is now looking to expand the Orion plant to build the hybrid Malibu as well.

The local union is hoping for an announcement from GM on expanding the plant by September.
