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.

Grainy Colorado: Chevy Sculpts New Mid-size Pickup Out of Sand

Sep 2 2014 4:53pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

First things first. The best thing to happen in San Diego during the Labor Day weekend was the Drive Like Jehu reunion show in Balboa Park, which found the angular rock geniuses accompanied by the gigantic, century-old Spreckels Organ. Everything else of note was simply vying for second place, including the annual U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships. Since Chevrolet apparently couldn’t get (or more likely didn’t try to get) Jehu frontman and noted artist Rick Fr ...

Sep 2 2014 9:46am CDT | Source: Cars.com

When you're traveling with family in the car, at some point you're going to be faced with cleaning up a spill. If you're lucky, the spill will be harmless, like water, or maybe even pleasantly aromatic, like peppermint tea. But let's get real: The majority of us have had to deal with spilt milk from leaky sippy cups that have rolled under the car's seats, only to be found when the nuclear stench assaults our senses. Or the worst of all: the aftereffects of c ...

General Pedaler: GM Introduces Free Bike Sharing Program at Michigan Tech Center

Sep 1 2014 3:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Look out, Google: Enough General Motors employees wanted to arrive at meetings covered in sweat that the company has introduced a bike-sharing program. Okay, a desire for damp, winded employees probably had less to do with GM’s decision than the rising popularity of active-workplace programs, but still—up here in Michigan, it’s pretty warm outside. Employees can now pedal across 330 acres of GM’s technical center in Warren, Michigan, instead of driving ...

2015 GMC Yukon XL Denali Long-Term Intro: It’s Mega Supreme

Astute marketing by GM has split the fraternal truck twins Chevrolet and GMC into different market segments, at least in the typical consumer’s mind. In the full-size-SUV category, an invisible wall stands between the value-conscious Chevy Tahoe and Suburban and the better-dressed GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.  R ...
