The New-Delhi born Chevrolet e-Spark, the electric version of the Spark created by General Motors with the help of Reva Electric Company, is apparently on schedule to be launched onto the market by the end of the year.

According to, citing Reva deputy chairman Chetan Maini, the car will most likely get into consumer's hands in the first months of 2011 and will see an annual production run of some 5,000 units.

“The GM project is on schedule and we are likely to be ready with a pilot version of the e-Spark by the end of 2010,”
Maini was quoted as saying yb the source. “The model likely will be launched in the Indian market in the first quarter of 2011.”

The electric Spark, which will be manufactured at GM's Talegaon factory in Pune, will be based on the Chevrolet Spark architecture and will be powered by the RECC EV powertrain.

It will be a four seater and will rely on two driving modes, Regular and Boost, which will supply the power coming from the high-torque AC electric unit.

Packing a number of "smart consumer friendly features", the electric Indian built car is expected to cost around s. 7 lakh (around $15,000).

The e-Spark will be the first four-door passenger electric vehicle sold in the country. Reva also plans the introduction of two other EVs, the NXR and NXG, also by the end of the year.
