Chevrolet used its smallest model, the Spark minicar, as the basis for its new all-electric car. The gasoline-powered Spark gets by with just 84 horsepower and 83 foot-pounds of torque, a pittance by today's standards. The Spark EV's electric motor, on the other hand puts out 130 horsepower and 400 foot pounds of torque. Yes, it's a heavier car, but that power should more than make up for it. (We'll let you know more once we've driven it.)
