Chevy Spark, an affordable small city car which is available with petrol engines or as an all-electric vehicle doesn’t offer any radical changes for the year 2015.
This 5-door hatchback is available in two of Chevy’s lower grades, 1LT and 2LT. This strictly FWD vehicle is moved around by an electric motor which generates 140 hp and impressive 327 lb-ft of torque. Of course, transmission is automatic and charging time takes 20 hours with 120 V outlet, or around 7 hours with 240-volt cord.
2015 Chevrolet Spark EV exterior
Spark’s front end features trademark Chevy’s grille split in half with a horizontal bar and golden cross badge on it. However, there’s some difference with Spark as its grille comes with metallic silver plate on it instead of stripes or mesh which is usually the case with Chevrolets. Hood is positioned under an angle, and so are huge pointy headlights. Rear end has a set of circular tail-lights, roofline spoiler and quite pronounced bumper and wheel arches.
2015 Chevrolet Spark EV interior
Inside, Spark offers somewhat futuristic look that we are becoming used to in these new generations of all-electric hybrids. Seats come in black and sky blue combination with some distinctive angular marks all-over. They are furbished with leatherette material, while the dash and side panels are made of plastic and offer many accents in the same light blue color. Very big instrument panel has a 7-inch touch screen display with Bluetooth and Pandora radio compatibility. Gauge consists of one LCD display which shows all relevant info for an all-electric car e.g. battery status. New to this year is 4G LTE telematics system with a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot. In terms of safety, you’ll get 10 standard airbags, cruise, stability and traction control, engine immobilizer, and a few more features.
Fuel economy ratings are where this small car excells and it’s no wonder since it was built exactly fo this. Chevy Spark returns the numbers of 128 mpg in the city and 109 mpg on the highway estimated, and has an all-electric range of 82 miles.
Chevy Spark EV 2015 will be available later this year.
