General Motors (NYSE:GM): The new generation Spark, one of GM’s compact offerings, may get nearly double the range of the Volt once the same plug-in drive train is shoe-horned into the vehicle this summer. EPA estimates put the combined mileage (city and highway) of the car — which will only be sold in California and Oregon, to start — at 82 miles before the gasoline engine boots up, trumping the Volt’s 40 estimated miles currently.
