The list of models that have been discontinued for the 2015 model year includes two battery-electric models and General Motors' Chevrolet Impala ECO eAssist mild hybrid sedan.

The Impala ECO is a BAS (belted alternator starter) hybrid that uses an electric motor to contribute power to the internal combustion engine's crankshaft with a serpentine belt. The similar Chevrolet Malibu ECO eAssist was discontinued for the 2014 model year.

The Car Connection published a list of models that won't make it to 2015. The list also includes the Acura TL and TLX sedans, which are being replaced by the TLX sedan; Honda's Fit EV; Nissan's Cube, and Murano CrossCabriolet, and Maxima; Toyota's RAV EV and FJ Cruiser; the Scion xD; and the Lexus IS C and IS F.

Cadillac is canceling the CTS-V sedan and wagon, which will be replaced by the new CTS. Chrysler is ending production of the 200 convertible.
