2012 LA: 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV expected to provide best range in segment

While GM released many details on the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV, it is keeping hush about the estimated range of the compact electric-car on a full charge – however, the Detroit automaker says that the Spark EV is expected to provide the best range in the segment.

Power in the Chevy Spark EV comes from a GM-designed, coaxial drive unit and electric motor that produces 130-hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Performance wise 0 to 60 mph is expected to come in under 8 seconds, which isn’t bad for an EV.

Prices will start under $25,000.
