After 100 years of building mostly internal combustion cars and trucks, Chevrolet is making a bold statement about the next 100 years, using its Centennial anniversary to announce the launch of the Spark electric car.

The Spark will be the automaker’s first all-electric car to be sold in the U.S. and is expected to be offered initially in California with no plans to sell the EV in all states.

GM doesn’t have high-hopes for the car, at least not initially, with sales pegged at just 2,000 units per year.

The decision to move ahead with the Spark EV is the result of new rules by the state of California which is requiring that automakers that want to continue selling traditional vehicles in the state also sell an emissions-free model. The 2,000 unit stales target is likely enough to meet the state’s goal.

Look for the Spark EV to be sold along side a gasoline-powered model, which is expected to hit dealers next year as a 2013 model year car.
