Recently, at the Geneva Motor Show, Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe President Susan Docherty introduced the Spark EV to Europe.
The Spark EV will be somewhat limited in its initial roll-out, but first deliveries are expected about a year from now. In the first quarter of 2014, Chevy plans to get the Spark EV into select dealerships throughout Europe – assuming the same dealerships that currently sell the Chevy Volt.
The Chevy Spark EV is currently set to launch in South Korea this summer, and then later this year in California and Oregon. The Spark EV will make it to Canada in 2014 as a fleet vehicle first.
Pricing has not been released, but Chevy did say it would by less than $32,500 before incentives.
Chevy will be the first manufacturer to produce a vehicle with an optional SAE charging outlet. Electric range is expected to be around 81 miles, after GM CEO Akerson said weight reductions had brought the Spark EV’s range up 5 miles to about 80 miles total range.
