2014 Chevrolet Spark EV Review and Road Test
When GM said their new EV cranked out more torque than the standard Tesla
Model S or a Ferrari 458 Italia, my interest was piqued. When they said
their new EV was a front wheel drive car, I scratched my head. When they
said it was none other than the Spark, aka the Daewoo Matiz Creative, I
knew I needed to see what GM's first pure-electric vehicle since the
ill-fated EV1 was all about.
The Spark EV starts its life in Changwon, South Korea where gasoline and
electric sparks are built by GM Korea. The heart of the Spark however comes
from America. GM is building the permanent magnet motors in Maryland and
rather than using LG batteries made in Korea, like the Chevy Volt,
American-made batteries courtesy of B456 (formerly A123). (No, I'm not
kidding.) Instead of shipping cars sans drivetrain, GM ships batteries and
drivetrain to Korea, then they ship the completed car back to the USA.
Why does the Spark EV exist? Because of my home state of California of
course. The California Air Resources Board has mandated that Toyota, Honda,
Nissan, Ford, GM and Chrysler make a total of 7,500 zero emissions vehicles
by 2014 and 25,000 by 2017. This just the start of the estimated 270,000
yearly production that will be required in 2025.
As with the gasoline version, the front seats are flat, firmly padded and
offer little lumbar support. The hard plastics on the doors make for an
uncomfortable place to rest your elbow but thankfully there is a padded
armrest in the center for the driver only. This isn't unusual for compact
cars, but electrification makes for strange bedfellows and the Leaf, Focus
EV and Fiat 500e are direct competition that all offer more driver and
Because of the Spark's narrow width the Chevy is a strict four-seater
putting it on par with the 500e but one passenger behind the Fit, Leaf and
Focus. It was surprisingly easy to put four tall adults in the Spark, a
task that is more difficult in the considerably larger Focus because of its
sloping roof-line. Still, passengers will be more comfortable in the Honda
Fit which offers a bit more room for four, seating for five and more
headroom all the way around. Despite the Leaf's rear seat numbers being
average, because of the way the seating position in the Leaf most people
will find the Nissan roomier.
As with most gas to EV conversions, the Spark loses a bit of cargo volume
in the process dropping 2 cubes to 9.6 cubic feet of cargo space. That's
slightly larger than the 500e but a long way from the Leaf's spacious 24
cubic foot booty. Unlike the Fiat 500e however, GM chose not encroach on
passenger footwell space for battery storage.
2013 Chevrolet Spark
Consumers might shy away from Chevy's tiny Spark because of its compact
dimensions (and awful pink color, in our case), but looks are deceiving,
says Cars.com reviewer David Thomas. The Spark is roomier than it looks and
its small four-cylinder engine is also peppier than expected. The Spark is
at home in the city, but it's not very comfortable on the highway, where
the ride really suffers, Thomas says.

2013 Chevrolet Spark 2LT Test Drive & Urban City Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/spark/2013/?id=32972 Last year Chevrolet
debuted the Sonic subcompact car to compete with the likes of the Mazda2,
Toyota Yaris, and Hyundai Accent just to name a few. Well for the 2013
model year, Chevy has gone even smaller with the introduction of the 2013
Chevrolet Spark which is one of the only city cars on sale here in America.
The urban vehicle segment may not be that big just yet; but over in Europe,
these tiny cars are a big hit and Chevy is hoping that trend will catch on
here. The Spark is one of the smallest cars on the market competing against
the likes of the Smart Fortwo and the Scion iQ. The 2013 Chevy Spark has a
low base price of $12,185.
Little cars have not yet quite caught on here in the U.S. But things are
changing and Automakers are taking notice; case in point: the 2013 Chevy
Spark. This is General Motors first entry into this ultra-mini segment. The
bright Jalapeno Metallic Green paint on the test vehicle looks pretty good
and helps the Spark really stand out. For such a small car, the Spark has a
whole lot of style going on. Up front is the very familiar family face that
can be seen on other Chevrolet models, and large angular headlights are
well integrated, and the aluminum trim pieces look great. Along the sides
the 15-inch rims look perfect, the hatchback design gives you a very
European feel, and integrated roof spoiler is nicely suited for this city
City cars are small in stature and hold fuel economy importance above
overall power. So it should come as no surprise that the 2013 Chevrolet
Spark has a small 1.2 liter 4-cylinder engine capable of 84 horsepower and 83 lb-ft. of
torque. The Spark comes with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed
automatic. Fuel Economy is 32 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway.
Inside the drivers space is a great place to be. The ergonomics are
cleverly laid out. There are some neat tricks going on throughout the
cabin. One example is the gauge cluster that is reminiscent of a motorcycle
and adjusts with the steering wheel. The command deck is a 7-inch screen
with the Chevy MyLink system which looks very good.
The 2013 Chevrolet Spark is a very easy to drive car. There are a lot of
standard features that adds great value to an already low priced car. There
are a few other cars in this niche but the Spark offers so much more car at
this price point.
