single-charge-sparkAccording to the folks over at General Motors, they are working on a new electric version of the Chevrolet Spark minicar which is said to be able to travel up to 82 miles on a single charge, where that would clearly place it a wee bit ahead of the Nissan Leaf (which we ourselves took out for a spin a couple of years back, and drove away impressed with the ride) by approximately seven miles farther, which would be good for more than a few rounds around the block.

Apparently, the 2014 Spark EV is said to achieve 119 miles-per-gallon-equivalent, thanks to a calculation derived by the minds over at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency so that consumers are able to experience a sense for the potential savings, although the advent of pure electric cars such as the Nissan Leaf and the Spark EV do not sip a single drop of gasoline at all. GM executives target urban commuters who do not have far to travel to work each day, and want something small enough that makes it a snap to park. GM has quoted a price tag of under $25,000 with tax incentives, and we cannot wait to check it out as it arrives at showrooms later this summer in California and Oregon.
