EV Gets EPA estimates

The EPA has finally got around to issuing the estimated driving range and fuel efficiency equivalents for Chevrolet's new small electric vehicle called the Spark EV. EPA estimates of the driving range of the Spark EV will be 82 miles from fully charged. The vehicle also gets a 119 MPGe fuel economy equivalent.

Chevrolet says that the EV will say drivers up to $9000 in fuel costs over five years. The Spark EV will go on sale in California and Oregon this summer. The vehicle uses a 21 kWh lithium-ion battery pack the carries in a year or 100,000 mile limited warranty.

The Spark will also be the first electric vehicle on the market with the option available to use the SAE Combo charger for DC Fast charging. That charger will recharge the Spark EV up to 80% capacity in only 20 min. Charging from a 240 V outlet will take about seven hours.

That program—which is really a 72-month purchase loan w ...
