EV, but it has held back revealing the car's range.

The Spark EV is powered by a 130hp and 400lb-ft electric motor and will accelerate to 60mph in less than eight seconds. It will also be the first car on the market with three-phase DC fast charging. If drivers have the 500v DC charger, it will charge to 80% in 20 minutes. GM will offer the charging system to interested customers. On a dedicated 240v outlet, it takes about seven hours to charge.  

The car uses a 20kWh battery pack with an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty.

“What we think customers will enjoy most is how fun Spark EV is to drive; it’s seamless and power is available at every stage of the drive. This will help us to provide an exciting option for those customers who are looking for an EV that’s as much fun to drive as it is environmentally responsible," said the car's chief engineer Chuck Russell.
