Chevrolet Spark electric car

27 November 2012

"Chevrolet Spark electric car"

The 2014 Chevrolet Spark electric car, introduced today ahead of the Los Angeles International Auto Show, packs smart performance and connectivity technologies into an affordable 5-door urban mini car designed to make the trip as electrifying as the destination. It will be priced under $25,000 with tax incentives.
With the Chevrolet Volt, Chevrolet accounts for more than 50 percent of all plug-in electric vehicle sales in the United States and Spark EV builds on Chevrolet’s proven electric motor and battery development programmes. When it goes on sale next summer, the Spark EV is expected to have among the best EV battery range in its segment and be the first electric vehicle to offer SAE Combo DC Fast Charging capability enabling the Spark EV to reach 80-percent battery charge in just 20 minutes.  

“When you engineer a technology filled, all-electric mini car that goes from zero-to-60 mph in less than eight seconds, customers won’t miss the gas,” said Mark Reuss, president, General Motors North America. “The Volt and now the Spark EV show that Chevrolet not only knows EVs better than anyone else, we also know how to help customers get the most out of their EV experience.”

Spark EV is powered by an advanced electric motor and battery system. It consists of a GM-designed, coaxial drive unit and electric motor that together deliver 130 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque for instant acceleration; and a more than 20-kWh lithium ion battery is expected to provide among the best EV range performance in its segment.

Spark EV’s long-life battery is designed to be safe, durable and reliable, and is warranted for eight years or 100,000 miles.  Using a dedicated 240V outlet, Spark EV recharges in less than 7 hours. Owners can coordinate charging according to departure time or during off-peak electricity rates.
