General Motors has just announced that it will build and sell the new midsized 2013 Chevrolet Malibu in Korea. The Chevrolet Malibu will be GM’s first sedan to be sold globally in nearly 100 markets on six continents.

“Adding Korea as a key sales market for the new Malibu further increases the brand’s global presence and continues our growth path while increasing our car offerings to consumers in Korea,” said Russ Clark, Chevrolet Product Director.

GM said that the Chevrolet Malibu already has a growing fan bas in Korea, where members of Malibu-related Internet clubs total about 30,000 in a market where Malibu has never officially been sold.
