The Chevrolet Spark is a four-door hatchback that boasts city-friendly dimensions and Chevrolet's available MyLink multimedia system. Slotting below the subcompact Sonic, which is more than a foot longer in hatchback form, the Spark competes with a handful of minicars in the U.S.: the Smart ForTwo, Scion iQ and Fiat 500. An all-electric Spark EV is available in California and Oregon.

The Spark EV is an all-electric version of Chevrolet's minicar and the brand's first purely battery-powered car. (Chevrolet's Volt uses a gasoline engine that sustains charge once its electric range is depleted.) The car's approximate range is 82 miles, and like other electric cars such as the Nissan Leaf and Ford Focus Electric, the Spark EV won't move once the battery is drained. It is sold only in Oregon and California, and Chevrolet hasn’t said whether it will be offered in other states.
