About Chevrolet Spark EV

The 2016 Spark is Chevrolet's smallest, least expensive vehicle. All-new for 2016 and now in its second generation, this tiny 4-passenger hatchback has more mature looks than its predecessor, fuel economy that reaches 41 mpg, and improved drivability thanks to a more powerful engine. While the latest Spark trades some interior space for sleeker design, Chevy's minicar is now better equipped with technology such as a 7-inch touch screen, built-in Wi-Fi, rearview camera, and CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Distraction-preventing safety options include lane-departure warning and forward-collision alert. Like the Fiat 500, Smart Fortwo and Mitsubishi Mirage, the Spark's diminutive size is best suited for shorter commutes, though the Chevy feels the most substantial of the group. The limited-availability, all-electric Spark EV carries over unchanged.

"The Spark EV model, with a lot of battery weight under the floorboards, handles significantly better than the regular model. Unfortunately, the official write up at this site does not distinguish that adequately. I got the Spark EV after driving a Fiat 500E for a year and returning it under the lemon law. The Spark hasn't won any beauty contests, but the difference in reliablity, handling and back seat comfort strongly favors the Spark EV over the Fiat. I've had zero glitches with the Spark, and had many with the Fiat. Chevy has stopped production of the Spark EV in favor of the Bolt. I get 70 to 105 real world miles depending on weather and ratio of freeway speeds."

"I've had my Spark EV for a little more than a year and couldn't be happier. Three cents per mile to drive, no maintenance except tires, blast to drive, access to the HOV lanes, and the best part - driving past gas stations. The only thing that could make it better would be the government giving me a $7500 tax credit for buying it. Oh wait... they did!"

"My wife commutes w it to work 55mi. r/t. no problem and she can use the HOV lanes here in CA which makes her drive a complete, stress free jaunt. Acceleration is pretty crazy for this model. We find 0-60 in 5.6sec. Really gets us into speeding fwy traffic easily and out of dicey situations with immediate accel response. Handling is sporty and clean. We received excellent cash grants for ownership and a great tax break for the year. Using the PG&E EV residential electric rate plan we charge during off-peak periods and save huge on household energy costs. Range for us has been around 90mi. on a charge w 20kw battery. We typically operate around 4.5-5.0 miles/kw depending on how its driven."
