Chevrolet has just released word on several new vehicles for the world-famous SEMA show . Among them is this Spark EV Tech Performance concept. Sure it’s an all-electric Spark with no conventional gasoline engine, but don’t let that fool you.
This EV totes 400 pound-feet of tire-shredding torque with beefier axles and aluminum wheels that propel the hatchback from naught to 60 in 7.5 seconds. Even the holy grail of muscle cars - the1969 Camaro SS powered by a 350 cubic-inch, small-block V-8 didn’t produce torque numbers like that.
The Spark also comes with a unique power-delivery algorithm programmed into its computer that enhances acceleration. A custom exterior color and graphics help set the Spark EV apart, and a backlit Chevy ‘bowtie’ on the grille gives it a mean look at night.
Inside the Spark, Chevy added a few basic custom touches, like doorsill plates, floor mats and pedal covers. A military-style, flip-up “activation switch” on the dash adds excitement to starting the EV, and body-color stitching on the shifter boot and steering wheel help liven up the Spark’s interior.
