Chevrolet Spark EV to Electrify Europe
The Chevrolet Spark EV is anticipated to set a benchmark in performance for an urban city electric car. It is powered by the most advanced electric motor and battery system General Motors has ever built. The heart of the Spark EV's propulsion system is the GM-designed permanent magnet electric motor. Mated with a coaxial drive unit, the electric motor churns out more than 130 hp (100 kW) and will propel the Spark EV to 100 km/h in under 8.5 seconds. Its smooth, yet instantaneous torque of 542 Nm, make the Spark EV a small car with enjoyable driving dynamics and seamless power that is available at every stage of the drive. The state-of-the art Chevrolet MyLink connected radio enables drivers to access their phone numbers, navigation or internet radio apps or their favourite music stored on their mobile phone. I-Phone users can access SIRI, a voice-controlled intelligent assistant.
