The engineers at Buick, Cadillac, GMC and Chevrolet are reinventing the automobile for 2013 and beyond as GM boasts one of the strongest and most diverse lineups of vehicles in our history.

Nowhere is that reinvention more evident than in our latest electric vehicles, which hold the promise of cleaner air and reduced petroleum dependence. Technologies that once seemed far-fetched are leaving the research lab and arriving in dealer showrooms in the Northwest.

When the 2014 Chevy Spark EV launches this summer, it will be the first all-electric vehicle sold by GM in the company’s history. The Spark EV will also be the first electric vehicle sold in North America with the optional SAE Combo DC Fast Charger capable of charging the battery to 80 percent capacity in 20 minutes. The five-door urban car is the perfect vehicle to take on the daily commute from the Kitsap Peninsula to Seattle or Tacoma. read more »
