The Electric Chevy Spark is expected to be shown at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, however, it was recently shown off to the media at the GM Electrification Experience in San Francisco. Chevrolet has also stated that this Spark should provide among the best EV range in the business.
Chief engineer of the car, Chuck Russell, states “What we think customers will enjoy most is how fun the Spark EV is to drive. Its seamless power is available at every stage for the drive. This will help us to provide exciting options for customers who are looking for an EV that’s as much fun to drive as it is environmentally responsible.
What makes the car even better is that the EV motor and the drive unit will be built here in the United States, making it the first of its kind to have those components built here.
