Fuel Efficiency, American Style

2015 Chevrolet Spark EV
119 MPGe
Price: Starting at $26,820
Only the BMW i3 EV bests the Spark EV in terms of fuel economy for cars sold in America — pretty good company to keep for the small electric-powered Chevrolet. With 140 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque, the Spark EV zips to 60 mph in just over 7 seconds. Range is rated at 81 miles, and with a fast-charge system the lithium-ion battery back can be charged from nothing to 80 percent in just 20 minutes. Unfortunately, Spark EV availability is currently limited to California and Oregon.

  1. You think 550-mile range would be bladder-busting? How about 60 miles for this old lady?
    Those were a nice range of vehicles, price-wise and size-wise. The smallest were the neatest looking.
