Here's a pretty good article comparing the different EV vehicles in terms of range and MPGe. While the Spark doesn't have the best range, it does come up on top when it comes to MPGe.

The Chevy’s estimated range is 82 miles on a full charge, and it gets 119 MPGe combined.

The range estimate puts the Spark pretty squarely in the middle of the EV field. The larger Nissan Leaf has a 73-mile range, but the Coda sedan can go 88 miles on a charge.

The similarly-sized Fiat 500e has an 87-mile range, and looks better while driving those miles. The Honda Fit EV ties the Spark, while the Mitsubishi i-MiEV falls short with a 62-mile range.

These are insane numbers, expected of course for an Ev in this segment. The number sound really attractive but i still skeptical about EVs. These vehicles would be best for traveling those long miles or trips, but since you need a dedicated charging station I just don't think it will pan out.

Your right about these vehicles being good for long distance traveling but of course the downside is the lack of area's to charge. There is the mobile charger though, so you'll just have to really plan your trip out and find places you can charge up at.

It's a bit more trouble to deal with than gasoline but at least your not paying for gas!

Absolutely agree, the charging stations around North America are still pretty scarce. Until auto manufacturers can provide a proper EV charging station infrastructure, it would be wise not to take your EV cars on long cross country drives.

Impressive numbers but a great trade off for power. I wouldn't argue with that mileage. Now that EVs are setting the bar for this amount of mileage and this is only the beginning.
