Over a year ago General Motors told of an all-electric version of the Chevy Spark that would be headed to US dealers some time in 2014. GM has confirmed the Spark EV will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month.

There are no details on the mini little electric vehicle. GM has only stated that the Spark EV will “offer consumers the same package that has made the gasoline-powered model so popular while delivering the technology and performance of pure electric power.”

We had previously learned that the Spark EV will only be sold in limited quantities and in select US and global markets, making it sound an awful lot like a compliance EV.

The Spark EV is one of 13 new or significantly redesigned products that Chevrolet will be launching in 2013.

“Chevrolet continues to build on the momentum of eight consecutive quarters of record global sales with the introduction of more new products, features and technologies that are designed to offer consumers exceptional functionality, comfort and convenience,” said, Chris Perry, vice president of Global Chevrolet Marketing.

“The Spark EV and next-generation of MyLink demonstrate Chevrolet’s commitment to delivering the advanced technologies that today’s consumers will be eager to adopt and truly value,” Perry said.
