With Chevy Volt sales falling flat, GM is hoping next year's release of the Chevy Spark will give its electric car efforts a lift. Pitched by GM as a smaller, cheaper alternative to the costly Volt. Anton Wahlman expects the Spark to sell for less than $30K (not counting tax credits), and compare favorably with the Nissan Leaf (NSANY.PK) in terms of both price and range. A123 Systems (AONE) will be supplying battery packs for the Spark.
