Boasting 130 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, the newest addition to the Chevrolet electric vehicle family has been officially unveiled at the 2012 LA Auto Show.

The 2014 Chevy Spark EV wasn’t exactly under wraps leading up to its debut in Los Angeles, but certainly caught the attention of California residents at the show. The compact electric vehicle will be launching initially in California, Oregon, Canada, and South Korea – but Californian residents will benefit with the highly-sought after HOV decal.

As for details, the American automaker unfortunately didn’t share anything new and no estimated range was officially announced. Given its 400 lb-ft of torque, the Spark EV might not have an impressive range – we’re hoping the American automaker debunks that in the near future.

Chevy did reiterate that the Spark EV will be priced under $25,000 after federal tax incentives and rebates, and thanks to the SAE Combo DC Fast Charging capability, owners can hit 50 percent charge in 12 minutes and 80 percent in just 20 minutes. Ultimately, Chevy wants its Spark EV to be a real-world option for gasoline free, emissions free, fun transportation.

Tons of plus's with the Spark EV, range can be improved but no one in the right mind is going to take an EV on a long road trip. EV's are mainly intended for those commuting the town/city they live in, very beneficial to those living in highly populated cities.

Although Chevrolet gave no official range numbers, the Spark EV at the show did have a real number: 75 miles!

See the dash display here:
LCD instruments - Chevrolet Spark EV hits 60mph in 8 seconds, charges in 20 minutes (pictures) - CNET Reviews

Now we need GM to make it official.
75 miles is great, but your right we need to see some real world numbers put down. Going to have to wait for EPA numbers.

we can even run our own Spark EV Range thread here to see what members are gettting....sometimes the EPA isn't on point.
