In a previous post on our blog, we shared with you news about the 2014 Camaro that was revealed at the recent New York Auto Show. Today we’d like to share with you how at the same time, the American automaker was also showing off a new all-electric version of the latest Chevy Spark on the other side of the country at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Production of this efficient two-door vehicle began in South Korea in early March and will go on sale this summer in a few select markets: Canada, South Korea, Oregon, and California. It will soon go on sale in other regions as well, so stay tuned to our blog to hear when it will arrive in the Woodbridge, VA area.
We’ve seen an increased interest in electric vehicles lately as gas prices continue to rise, but they’re used a little differently than the other cars in our lineup of new and used Chevy vehicles. We’ll allow Kim Pil-Su, an auto expert at South Korea’s Daelim University, to explain: “To make electric cars more appealing to consumers it’s better to first market them as a second car for downtown driving or short-distance trips, instead of a car to entirely replace gas-fuelled cars.”1
The American automaker has yet to announce specifics on this new EV, but if you would like to ask our experts any qyestions about what we think is to come, don’t hesitate to call us at 888-366-3311 or to simply stop by our showroom during regular business hours.
