The Spark might be the smallest thing available in Chevy‘s North American lineup, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t offer more torque than most other passenger vehicles, and even sports cars, on the road.
The standard version of the Spark offers a 1.2-liter engine with about as much horsepower as my grandmother has years of life experience. Though if you’re not a fan of burning dinosaur juices, there’s the Spark EV, which packs almost double the horsepower than the standard model, and a borderline unnecessary amount of torque. And at SEMA, there was an even better version of the favorable EV.
Chevy showed the world the Spark EV Tech Performance, which has enhanced torque levels (up to 450lb-ft, from 400), and stronger axles, new wheels and tires to help put that electric power to the ground. There’s also multiple cosmetic upgrades, such as the two-tone paint, and tinted headlamps. If only it were offered as an optional package from the dealer. Until then, 400lb-ft and standard wheels and tires will have to suffice.
