There’s no rule that states that electric vehicles have to be boring, which must be why Chevrolet rolled out this performance oriented Spark EV at the 2013 SEMA show.

This radical looking Spark EV features a unique green and white exterior theme, likely hinting at its environmentally friendly power train sitting under the hood. This model on display at the SEMA show uses a slightly upgraded electric motor, making 450 lbs-ft of torque and finishing the sprint to 60 mph in about seven and a half seconds, quicker than the production car.

The Spark EV Tech Performance concept sits next to a modified Chevrolet Cruze Diesel, which also sports a few unique upgrades.
