As reported earlier, GM India has gone on to reveal its electric Chevrolet Beat (Spark) in New Delhi. Before we get carried away though, we should mention that this EV Beat is simply a one-off, and is part of an ongoing study on the feasibility of electric vehicles in urban areas.
The 45 kW (60 horsepower) battery aboard this special Beat is capable of 130 kilometers (81 miles) on a full charge and takes exactly eight hours using a 240-volt outlet to recharge from being completely empty. It is composed of a liquid-cooled lithium-ion setup, weighs in at 595 pounds and is rated at 20 kWh. For more, have a look at the presser.
