Chevy’s first all-electric mini car offers “plug and play”

The Bow Tie Team has just added the most efficient U.S. retail electric vehicle to their lineup – the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV, with an estimated electric EPA range of 82 miles. The MPGe fuel economy equivalent rating is 119 (128 city/109 highway or 28 kW hours per 100 miles). The Spark EV joins an electrifying portfolio including the Chevrolet Volt, along with the eAssist Malibu and Impala, in Chevrolet’s quest for efficient sustainability.

The Spark EV is a sporty five-door hatch with room for four passengers. The overall shape is that of an exaggerated wedge. The EV is readily recognizable by its lack of exhaust and blocked-out upper grille sections – only a lower air inlet, flanked by two smaller, sculpted inlets appear at the front.

Power for the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV comes courtesy of a 105kWh permanent magnetic drive motor, with energy supplied by lithium-ion phosphate batteries in multiple linked modules that consist of 336 cells. The batteries weigh a total of 560 lbs and provide 140 hp, along with 400 lb ft of torque.
