According to General Motors spokesman Dave Darovitz, the company is moving up production of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu by four months ahead of schedule. GM was originally scheduled to start production of the next-generation Malibu in mid-2012 but after CEO Dan Akerson urged those involved with the production, the process has been moved up by about a quarter.

“Mr. Akerson requested we study the program to see if we can move quicker and faster,” Darovitz said.
