Watch the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV ignite the stage at the 2012 LA Auto Show

The brand new 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV carries one heck of an electric punch. According to GM, with a massive 400 pound-feet of torque, the Spark EV rockets to 60 MPH in under eight seconds.

That’s very fast indeed for an electric car that also promises to be affordable.

In the exclusive TFLcar video from 2012 LA Auto Show Chevy rolls out its very first all electric car that GM says is based in large part on the Volt.

Check it out as the Chevy Spark makes its world wide debut.

And yes just in case you were wondering…the Sparks EV battery can charge up to 80-percent battery in just 20 minutes.
