, which will initially go on sale next summer in select markets including California, Oregon, Canada, and South Korea.
GM announces class-leading range without getting into specifics. The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV comes with dual 7'' LCD screens and a range indicator that takes road conditions and driving style into account.
