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.

GM announced six new recalls that cover 717,950 Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC models from the 2010 to 2015 model years. The bulk of the recalls — 414,333 cars — involves late-model GM midsize SUVs, the Chevrolet Camaro sports cars and two Buick sedans, all with power height-adjustable seats. The power adjusters have faulty bolts, which may cause the seats to move up or down freely; GM says owners should not use the height adjuster until dealers replace the bolts. The ...

Jay Leno In Concert - Detroit, MI
This week on our Kijiji roundup, we’ve found five of the most unreliable quintessentially British cars you can buy for less than $5,000. Last week, we found five classic BMWs under the same price cap and the 1976 BMW 2002 for $4,800 was voted as the best deal by 38% of voters. Much like the British cars we’ve found today, the 2002 is short on outright speed but full of vintage style. British cars are very easy to maintain. To check ...
