EPA Says Chevy Spark is Most Efficient Car
Chevrolet representatives have announced that the company’s new Spark EV is the most fuel-efficient auto in the marketplace, with a 119 mpg-equivalent rating from the EPA and an 82-miles-per-charge electric range. The mpg-e number is a combined city/highway rating, while the electric range distance places the Spark EV ahead of many other mass-produced electric cars currently for sale. When the Spark EV arrives in dealer showrooms this July, it will only be available in Oregon and California. Specific pricing data is said to be forthcoming in several weeks, though GM has disclosed that after the $7,500 federal tax credit, buyers will be able to purchase a Spark EV for less than $25,000.

According to estimates by the General Services Administration (GSA), the move will save about 1 million gallons of gasoline each year. The agency’s acting administrator, Dan Tangherlini, said, “At a time when government needs to make every tax dollar count, GSA is committed to creating more energy efficiency and cost-saving opportunities like the fleet consolidation program that make government smarter and reduce our environmental footprint.” For the complete story, see:
