2014 Chevrolet Spark EV

Seems that GM will be really pushing the all electric version of the Spark. Against, mostly, the Versa.

Here is the official word:
"The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV, unveiled at the 2012 Los Angles Auto Show, packs smart performance and connectivity technologies into an affordable five-door urban mini car priced at under $25,000 with tax incentives. Expected to have among the best range in segment, the Spark EV also has 400 lb-ft of torque and can charge up to 80% in 20 minutes with optional SAE Combo fast charger. Aerodynamic treatments throughout the exterior enhance Spark EV's range.
With two reconfigurable, HD, seven inch color LCD screens, the Spark EV features a customizable interface with confidence gauge. Spark EV also has Chevrolet’s exclusive MyLink radio which brings smartphone-based infotainment – including apps for BringGo full-function navigation, Siri voice recognition, TuneIn global internet radio, Pandora and Stitcher – into the vehicle. "

It all seems pretty competitive against the "with tax incentives" $27 700 Nissan Leaf.
And Siri!

Given fires associated with the volt I would send this name back to the drawing board.

"Given fires associated with the volt I would send this name back to the drawing board."

You mean the fires that happened after a crash tested Volt at NHTSA sat in the parking lot with batteries that weren't properly decommissioned? With that logic, every vehicle should go "back to the drawing board." Seeing how they all carry gallons of flammable liquid. Cars with conventional engines are tested with a colored liquid, not fuel.

Given the mountain of "wrongful death" lawsuits that Prius/Camry Hybrid have had; not to mention the quality-glitch lawsuits that all the Hybrids from (Toyota & Honda in particular); all I can hope is that GM's track record is better than the "industry standards"
