Reputedly powered by the most advanced electric motor and battery system General Motors has ever built, the Spark EV is claimed to set the performance benchmark for electric city cars.
The Spark EV’s electric motor produces a useful 128bhp and a substantial 400lb ft. This allows the Chevrolet to go from 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds.
Power is sourced from a lithium-ion battery system that features active liquid cooling and heating to optimise its capacity and life.
Chevrolet hasn't disclosed the Spark EV’s potential range yet, but a fast-charging system allows the car to be charged to 80 per cent in 20 minutes.
Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe, said: "Just like Volt, this nimble battery-powered vehicle is a proof point for Chevrolet’s ingenuity in delivering smart mobility solutions."
