The Detroit Bureau - July 17, 2013

Gen­eral Motors will start sell­ing its Chevro­let Spark EV in South Korea by the end of this year, and will be bring­ing it to Europe as well. The Spark EV went on sale in Cal­i­for­nia last month; GM didn’t release sales pro­jec­tions but is very opti­mistic about long range prospects in key urban mar­kets. The base price is $27,495 and it qual­i­fies for a $7,500 fed­eral tax incen­tive and another $2,500 credit in California.
