Chevrolet is preparing a surprise at the end of this month for the Los Angeles Auto Show. American manufacturer will propose to public an electric version of the Chevrolet Spark.
At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Chevrolet will present an electric Spark witch will be sold only to a small group of clients in a limited number of units and only the U.S. and northern European markets.
Chevrolet confirmed some time ago that the future electric Spark will use the resources of an electric motor capable of delivering a total power of 115 horses. Zero-emission car will be kept alive by a set of lithium-ion batteries.
With the new Spark EV, Chevrolet will showcase at LA Auto Show and an enhanced version of its multimedia system MyLink. This new version will allow a wider customization and seamless integration of any smart phone.
PR:Chevrolet will unveil the plug-in electric version of the brand's popular new Spark mini car at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. The Spark EV is one of 13 new or significantly redesigned products that Chevrolet will be launching in 2013. Chevrolet will also showcase the expanded functionality of an advanced version of MyLink, which will be available first in the all-new 2014 Impala full-size sedan.
"Chevrolet continues to build on the momentum of eight consecutive quarters of record global sales with the introduction of more new products, features and technologies that are designed to offer consumers exceptional functionality, comfort and convenience," said, Chris Perry, vice president of Global Chevrolet Marketing.
"The Spark EV and next-generation of MyLink demonstrate Chevrolet's commitment to delivering the advanced technologies that today's consumers will be eager to adopt and truly value," Perry said.
The Spark has won over U.S. consumers with its expressive design, roomy interior and MyLink connectivity. In its first three months on sale, the Spark has delivered strong results, particularly in the Los Angeles market. Building on that success, the plug-in electric version of the Spark EV will offer consumers the same package that has made the gasoline-powered model so popular while delivering the technology and performance of pure electric power.
MyLink currently offers consumers easy-to-use in-vehicle connectivity. With the launch of the 2014 Impala, MyLink adds new levels of personalization and more seamless smartphone integration.
In addition to the Spark EV, other Chevrolet vehicles on display at the LA Auto Show include the all-new Impala, Malibu Turbo mid-size sedan, Sonic RS small car, Traverse full-size crossover and Camaro Hot Wheels® Edition.
