At the upcoming Geneva motor show 2013 European motorists will become familiar with the electric 2016 Chevrolet Spark.
Whatever dark clouds gathering over any electric cars, the car manufacturers do not charge them off. And the Prime Minister, which General Motors is preparing for the Geneva motor show 2013 is the best proof. At the exhibition the American auto giant will introduce the Chevrolet Spark electric, which already had its debut at the motor show in Los Angeles, but the European public is presented again.
The car has 130-horsepower electric motor, which allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in about 8 seconds. The U.S. auto giant is yet to release the indicator of power reserve of the electric Spark, but says that due to quick charging, up to 80% of battery life you can restore in 20 minutes.
New also has a pair of LCD screens inside, the MyLink system and rear view camera. Electric Chevrolet Spark will be offered in some European countries.
Opel plans to release a new budget model, which will be built on the basis of the future Chevrolet Spark.
Once Chevrolet leaves the European market, Opel will open new opportunities. For example, the German automaker is going to use Chevrolet Spark of new generation to build their own budget sitikar, which will be aimed at an audience of Dacia/Renault Sandero.
Details about the new product yet, but it is expected that she will appear in the near future. In the next year, to be exact. Given that Opel plans with the help of this new product to take away a part of buyers of Dacia, the cost model may be of the order of 7 thousand euros.
The Chevrolet brand will disappear from Europe
Recall that last year General Motors decided to remove Chevrolet from Europe to 2016-th year. So, even if Opel will use 2016 Chevrolet Spark to create their own models, these two cars will not compete.
