GM Begins Production of Electric Motors for the Chevrolet Spark EV
GM announced it has started production of its electric motors for the Chevrolet Spark EV, which will hit the market in June.
The Spark EV will offer 130 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, and will be able to reach 60 mph in less than 8 seconds. The model will be launched in June in Oregon and California, followed by Canada, South Korea and Europe. The electric motors assembled in Baltimore are shipped to South Korea where the model is assembled, and so are the battery packs which are produced by A123 in Livonia.
The model will be priced below $25,000.
