The Malibu is built in Fairfax, Kan., but according to a statement from Chevrolet first reported on by The Detroit News, parent automaker GM will end production of the Malibu before the end of 2024 and begin retooling the Fairfax factory to build the upcoming next-generation Chevrolet Bolt EV. Fairfax currently also builds the Cadillac XT4; the XT4 will continue to be built there alongside the new Bolt EV.

While the Malibu still sells well, finding more than 130,000 buyers in 2023 according to Automotive News, the current generation has not been redesigned since the 2016 model year. Honda’s Accord and Civic and Toyota’s Camry and Corolla still sell well, too, but overall sales of sedans have been in decline for years. As SUVs of all sizes continue to edge cars out of the market, the entry-level Chevrolet Trax and Trailblazer each surpassed 100,000 sales in 2023.
