The first ever Chevrolet all-electric mini car that has just been launched on US soil calls for some good applause. The Spark EV in fact is a four door hatchback exclusively designed for carrying four passengers. What makes it interesting is that it offers much more power than its gasoline model. And, like all its rivals, the car has a driving range less than 100 kilometers.
A stint behind the wheel would make you say sans any doubt that this vehicle is a very good companion for urban drive. The 12.5 feet long vehicle can be easily parked in even crowded spots. The 140 horse power engine gives enough power for the vehicle.
The 21 kilowatt hour lithium ion battery pack powers the Spark EV. The regenerative braking system is another feature , and this system transfers the power back to the battery pack in the time of braking. The EV has literally zero engine noise.
The cabin of the EV is made with style and much room for the passengers. The elegant dashboard and color touch screen bring about some awesomeness. The cabin roof is at a comfortable height too. The rear seats have little leg room, which feels not good in long drives.
The seven-inch color touch screen provides details about critical functions and connects with the smart phone of the driver for infotainment. The EV has Bluetooth capability to provide better connectivity. Cruise control and electric parking brakes are some of the other features of the new EV.
