Chevrolet e-Spark, Born in New Delhi
And the best example comes from the so-called e-Spark, the electric version of the Spark created by General Motors with the help of Reva Electric Company.
The e-Spark will be based on the Chevrolet Spark architecture and will be powered by the RECC EV powertrain, but will also be equipped with a number of "smart consumer friendly features", as the parent manufacturer said in a release.
The vehicle will provide enough room for four passengers and will rely on two driving modes, Regular and Boost that will supply the needed power through a high-torque AC electric unit. According to the official data, the Boost Mode will provide more power to the driver just when required but only for a short period of time.
There are no other technical details available, such as engine performance, acceleration or range but more details are expected to surface soon as Chevrolet will debut it at the end of this year.
If we are to trust voices familiar with the matter, the e-Spark will go on sale in October and will have a price tag of around Rs. 7 lakh (around $15,000).
In separate news, Chevrolet also introduced the Beat in India, a model that is also due to go on sale in global markets, including European countries, in the upcoming months. The car is powered by a 1.2-liter engine which underwent an extensive program to return the best possible fuel efficiency figures.
