The Chevrolet Spark electric powered car is perhaps the most efficient one of its kind that you can purchase right now. In a society that is aggressively seeking new and better ways to live in harmony with the environment, it is certainly drawing some attention.
General Motors began offering this totally electric version of their popular Spark model in 2013, and it has shown some notable improvement in just a few years. Though it’s only available in California and Oregon, Maryland is reported to be joining these two Western U.S. states in the summer of 2015.
Maybe others will follow this trend in the near future and add the Chevy Spark EV to their showroom floors.
Chevrolet Spark EV Price
Did you ever think you could own an electric powered car for about the same price as a gas-powered one of similar size? Since the manufacturer has lowered the retail starting point price on the Chevrolet Spark EV 2015 model, this happy thought can now become a reality.
They’ve dropped the initial cost of this economical little vehicle down to $25,995, and when you subtract the federal tax credit of $7,500, that comes out to around $18,495! Seriously, if you’ve been on the fence about trying one of these cars out, now may be the perfect time.
You can begin saving as much as $80 or more on gas per month, and help the environment at the same time! It’s a bona fide win/win situation for the planet and you.
For those consumers who don’t want to commit to buying one outright, Chevy has a no down payment lease program for approximately $139 per month.

The starting retail price which I mentioned above includes:
● Air conditioning
● Cruise control
● Keyless ignition
● Power windows and door locks
● Chevy MyLink entertainment system
For such an affordable price, this is quite an impressive package!
Additionally, this year’s edition of the Spark EV upgraded the drivetrain to give the acceleration a better boost. While doing so, the range stayed the same at around 82 miles when completely charged.
Top speed is around 90 miles per hour, which should be sufficient for most owner’s needs. This car is obviously not made for long trips, but it will do nicely for commuting to work or around your city. It will take about 7 hours to fully charge the vehicle on a 240-volt charger, but an ideal time for this task would be at night during sleep.
Anyone can easily see why the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV is near the top of its class in the field of green transportation.
