The 2014 Spark EV features a lithium-ion battery that offers gas and tail pipe emissions-free power and performance. The Spark EV includes generative braking, which captures energy that would otherwise be lost while braking, decelerating or going downhill. The battery is backed by an 8-year/100,000-mile limited warranty.
Spark EV achieves 0 to 60 mph in less than 7.6 seconds. Parallel parking is easy with a 33.8 foot turning radius.
There are three charging options for the 2014 Spark EV. The standard 120V cord plugs into any household outlet. For a faster charge, you can install the 240V system, which fully charges the battery in seven hours. Professional installation is required, so visit Bosch Automotive Service Solutions for more information. SAE Standard Fast Charging is the newest option. The SAE combo DC fast-charging stations will charge the battery to 80 percent in just 20 minutes. Stations will open in late 2013.
With an EPA estimated average of 128 MPGe highway, and an average of 82 miles per charge, you will feel the savings.
At Chevrolet, the safety of drivers and their passengers is top priority. Every Spark EV comes with technology that helps you stay in control. The StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System helps you stay on track on slippery surfaces. Hill Start Assist will help with steep inclines by holding the vehicle in place for a second after the brake is released to help you keep moving forward.
Safety features includes 10 standard airbags to help protect you and your passengers and the OnStar Command Center via the OnStar Automatic Crash Response system. At the Command Center, trained Advisors utilize GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and can request that it be sent right away - even if you're unable to respond. It's part of OnStar Directions & Connections Plan, standard for the first three years on every Spark EV.
