20121114064522713 Chevrolet will unveil the plug-in electric version of the brand’s popular new Spark compact car at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. The Spark EV is one of 13 new or significantly redesigned products that Chevrolet will be launching next year.

Chevrolet will also showcase the expanded functionality of an advanced version of MyLink, which will be available first in the all-new 2014 Impala large sedan. Alongside the Spark EV and new Impala, the ‘Bow Tie’ brand will exhibit the Malibu Turbo mid-size sedan, Sonic RS compact car, Traverse full-size crossover and Camaro Hot Wheels Edition.

The Spark has won over U.S. consumers with its expressive design, roomy interior and MyLink connectivity. In its first three months on sale, the Spark has delivered desirable results, particularly in Los Angeles, the 2nd largest city in America. Building on that success, the plug-in electric version of the Spark EV will offer consumers the same package that has made the gasoline-powered model so popular while delivering the technology and performance of pure electric power.

MyLink currently offers consumers easy-to-use in-vehicle connectivity. With the launch of the 2014 Impala, MyLink adds new levels of personalization and more seamless smartphone integration.
