Chevrolet Spark EV Gets EPA Range of 82 Miles per Charge

Chevrolet has announced that the EPA has given its inexpensive Spark EV the official estimated driving range and miles per gallon equivalent ratings. The EPA estimates that the Spark EV will be able to travel 82 miles on a single charge. Electric vehicle driving range always depends on the terrain and driving style, so take that with a grain of salt.

The vehicle will cost under $25,000 once the federal tax credits are figured in. Chevrolet also says that the vehicle will save owners up to $9000 in fuel costs over five years. The vehicle will go on sale this summer in limited locations, including California and Oregon.

GM plans to offer the vehicle more widely at a later date. The battery pack inside the Spark has an eight year or 100,000 mile limited warranty and with a new DC Fast Charger option, the vehicle can be charged to 80% capacity in only 20 min. The normal full charge takes seven hours using a 240 V outlet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
