2014 Chevrolet Spark EV: LA Auto Show Live Photos

Follow Antony

We've previewed it, we've driven the prototype, and now we can bring you live photos of the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV.

Chevy has turned its smallest offering into an electric car, and while there was some initial debate over whether it was a compliance car, the finished product appears anything but.

At a glance it looks much like any other Spark, but the devil is in the details.

Chevrolet has improved the car's aerodynamics, adding over two miles to the EV's range, compared to a standard Spark body. Easiest to spot is the new, Volt-like covered grille, but other subtle changes also help it slip through the air.

Inside, the Spark EV is much like the regular, gasoline-powered car, but two new TFT displays replace the Spark's standard instruments, providing data on the car and access to the EV's wealth of infotainment systems.

Chevy is confident it will offer one of the longest ranges in its class, and an optional SAE Combo DC Fast Charger could be an attractive option.

Priced from $32,500 pre-incentives it isn't the cheapest electric car on the market, but Chevy is proud of its baby--now it just needs people to buy them.

  1. Maybe it isn't a 'compliance' car, but it certainly isn't a car that is actually available for much of the nation. Let me drive it home from the dealership (without needing to stop overnight to recharge) - and it might be worth considering.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Hey Gregg N. - either you own a Volt, or I think you are in the wrong forum...

    Beyond that, all I have to say is that lady is wearing some dangerous shoes.

  3. Wow, those pictures make the car look TINY. Any idea how big it is compared to a Leaf, Volt or Focus EV?

  4. Hi Cory - The Spark is really in the minicar class, so it's certainly smaller than the Leaf/Volt/Focus. It's more similar in size to the Fiat 500, but has more interior room.

  5. Okay, that's what I would have guessed from the photos. Thanks for the confirmation.

  6. This car will languish in the showroom next to the Volt, and across the street from the Ford Focus EV. This car should be priced at $20k after rebates, incentives, and credits.

  7. Well, it might happen. $32.5K minus $2.5k dealer incentive (after few months), $2,500 CARB rebates, and $7,500 Federal Incentives, then it is exactly $20k.

    Don't forget the 400 ft-lbs of torque, easily the fastest EV beside Tesla...

  8. I like this little machine. Used to have a Ford Festiva which was smaller and only two doors but still managed to haul all I needed. This will be great for suburban commutes and shopping trips.

  9. I might buy one of those Spark EV used, from one of those after lease deals...

    I think Spark EV will kill any chance that Fiat 500e might have in the EV market.
