GM Announces All-Electric Chevy Spark EV for 2013

As the market for electric cars grows, General Motors have announced the upcoming 2013 launch of a new electric urban car, cleverly named the Volt and the Malibu Eco with eAssist technology in Chevy’s growing range of electrified vehicles.

The Spark minicar will only be available in the United States and it is modeled after the feedback participants in Chevrolet’s electric vehicle demonstration fleets in Shanghai, Korea and India.

“Our global demo fleets continue to provide insight into the needs to electric vehicle customers living in urban environments,” said Jim Federico, global vehicle chief engineer for electric vehicles at Chevrolet.

Chevy Spark will differ from the volt, which is equipped with a gasoline engine that takes over when the electric motor depletes. The 2013 Spark will be an all-electric car, which is why the drivers have to travel short distances, or have, as they called it “predictable driving patterns”.

     GM maybe in its best financial shape in its very short history. The
    current GM was born on July 10, 2009. So I am not sure that is saying
    very much to be in its best shape.
