Description
82-mile range EV that's fun to drive. I own a Porsche Boxster and Chevy Spark EV, and the Spark EV is my preferred car for getting around.

RANGE: The range is 82 miles. Driving the Spark like a sports car reduces the range, and so does A/C.

CHARGING: The car is equipped with an SAE Combo DC Fast Charger that allows charging to 80% in 20 minutes at certain "level 3" stations. The standard "level 2" charge rate is 13 miles of range per hour.

During or before your rental, please download the free PlugShare and/or ChargePoint apps to help locate charging stations. You can use the ChargePoint card attached to the giraffe keychain in the glove compartment for up to $20/day in electrons. (I often charge for free at public stations, such as in the city of Palo Alto parking garages.)

FROM MOTORTREND: "The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV 2LT is not just one of the best electric vehicles not named Tesla, but one of the best hatchbacks Chevrolet has built in years. I suspect drivers with a daily commute that takes them through congested Californian and Oregonian cities will start thinking of the Chevy Spark EV as the Chevy Spark SS.

"I guess I shouldn’t be all that surprised at how fun the 2014 Spark EV is. The manual-equipped gas-swilling Spark is one of the most fun vehicles in its class, driving like a motorized barstool, with a peppy 84-hp, 1.2-liter I-4, a willing chassis with a ridiculously small wheelbase. The Spark EV takes the base Spark, dumps the little four-banger, and replaces it with a permanent-magnet AC motor making 140 hp and a simply astonishing 400 lb-ft of torque. That’s more torque than a Ford Mustang GT, Porsche 911 Carrera S, and even a Ferrari 458 Italia! Chevy rounds out the Spark EV’s package with some 21 kW-hr lithium ion batteries in the trunk, staggered wheels, and an instrument panel from the Volt."
