As the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu launches in North America this summer, General Motors will be fortifying its workforce at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant by no less than 200 workers for the car’s production. Currently, the plant employs about 1,200 hourly workers as well as 150 salaried workers. According to the Detroit News, all of the workers have already been selected for the jobs and were referred by other people who already work for the automaker.
To note, Chevrolet has already launched the 2013 Malibu, but only in Eco form with its mild-hybrid powertrain. The standard Malibu will feature GM’s fresh, all-new 2.5L Ecotec inline four cylinder engine and the model is expected to be priced below the Malibu Eco, with slightly lower fuel economy numbers. Notably, the Detroit-Hamtramck plant will also build the all-new Chevrolet Impala when the time comes. The plant also builds the Chevrolet Volt and Opel/Vauxhall Ampera.
