2014 Chevrolet Impala production kicks off

We’ve talked a few times about the 2014 Chevrolet Impala. Chevrolet and General Motors have high hopes for the 2014 Impala to become the passenger halo car that Chevrolet is in desperate need of. Previous versions of the Impala have not been as popular as Chevrolet desired.

Production for the 2014 Impala has begun at the GM Oshawa, Canada assembly plant. Production commenced on April 1 and the vehicles will begin landing at dealerships around North America in early April. The 2014 Impala starts at $27,535 including destination charges.

The vehicle will have three different engines available including a 2.4-liter mild-hybrid Ecotec engine, 2.5-liter four-cylinder Ecotec LCV, and a 3.6-liter V6 engine. Some versions of the car will feature the new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that has the PIN secured cubby for storing your gear. Interestingly, the previous version of the Impala will remain in production.

Chevrolet GM will continue producing the previous model Impala for fleet sales. I’d wager that comes down to price, with the 2014 Impala starting at over $27,000 it’s not exactly an inexpensive vehicle for large fleets operate. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is based on the automakers extended Epsillon II vehicle architecture. Starting in May the new Impala will also be produced at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.

2014-sparkev-model The all-new 2014 Spark EV features a lithium-ion battery that offers gas- and emissions-free power and performance. This electric mini car utilizes some of the same cutting-edge electric power technology proven in the Chevrolet Volt, the best-selling rechargeable car of the year. Spark EV includes regenerative braking, which captures energy that would otherwise be lost while braking, decelerating or going downhill. It also offers liquid thermal conditioning, which maximizes its performance in extreme weather conditions. This guarantees the best performance from the battery and ensures its longevity. And the battery is backed by an 8-year/100,000-mile limited warranty.

Tuned specifically for its electric propulsion system, Spark EV puts power in all the right places at the moment it’s needed for a sporty and responsive ride, and by responsive we mean 0-60 mph in under 8 seconds.

Charging is easy peasy in the 2014 Spark EV. Just plug Spark EV into a standard household 120V outlet, or for a faster charge, you can opt for the available 240V dedicated charging system that charges up the battery in just seven hours.
