Fuel efficiency has been a huge theme at this week’s New York International Auto Show, and in keeping with that trend, Edmunds named the show’s five standout cars. One of the standouts was the newly unveiled 2013 Chevy Malibu!

Edmunds admired the size of the Malibu in particular: “Chevy bucks the ‘bigger is better’ trend that has dominated the midsize-sedan segment in recent years by going smaller with the 2013 Malibu,” said writer Warren Clarke in a blog post.

GM will be donating a 2013 Chevy Malibu to all sixteen schools competing in EcoCAR 2. We’re excited to see the teams further reduce the environmental impact of the already fuel efficient Malibu, while maintaining the consumer appeal that made the car such a hit this week in New York!

At today’s New York International Auto Show, the Chevrolet Volt was selected as 2011’s World Green Car of the year!

The award, presented by Bridgestone, honors a vehicle that was either all-new or substantially revised to be more environmentally responsible for the year 2011. The Volt was selected as a finalist from a group of twelve new cars from across the world, and beat out the BMW 320d and Nissan Leaf for the top prize.

Fuel efficiency, emissions, and power plant technology were all crucial elements in evaluating the nominated vehicles, so the awards committee employed three green experts to judge the cars’ technical aspects. The experts unanimously chose the Volt as one of the top-three vehicles in the competition.
