Global collaboration between designers and engineers resulted in the Spark EV, Chevrolet’s first all-electric mini car and most efficient EV in the U.S. With a fiercely dramatic exterior design and technologically advanced interior, the Spark EV uses zero gas and is 100 percent pure electric fun. When designing the interior of the Chevrolet Spark EV, we focused on creating an environment that was harmonious, uninterrupted, flowing and inviting to the senses. The electric blue exterior color was intricately woven into bright interior color accents, giving the cockpit a sporty vibe. The dramatic, customizable instrument cluster helps drivers get the most out of their EV experience. The cluster includes a seven-inch full-color LCD display screen that provides instant digital and graphic feedback. Within the Driver Information Center, drivers can keep an eye on their battery charge and how the vehicle’s energy is being used and created. Driver’s can even monitor how efficiently they are driving with the Efficiency Gauge. By simply keeping the green ball in the center of the gauge, drivers get the most out of each charge and enjoy optimal battery efficiency. The Chevrolet Mylink system also provides access to music, media and mobile apps while on the go. In-vehicle technology acts as your personal assistant allowing you to complete a variety of hands-free tasks including placing calls and retrieving text messages. The Chevrolet Spark EV was designed for fun, easy ownership. Blending technology and functionality in a mini package that uses no gasoline and is fun to drive.
