The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is the least expensive electric car on the market, and it can carry four adults despite its tiny size and nimbleness around-town, though it's less good at highway speeds. The 2014 Chevrolet Spark enters the minicar fold with a space-efficient package and some of the best infotainment and connectivity technology in any affordable car; and while performance of the standard Spark is lackluster, the Spark EV breaks out as one of the best-performing, most efficient electric cars. Too bad the EV is offered on such a limited basis.
