Chevrolet Spark EV Hitting Dealerships!

Thanks to an early release by General Motors, EV enthusiasts in California have another electric vehicle to consider. The 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV is now available at several dealerships across California, and the new EVs are working their way into Oregon and will soon be on the East Coast, as well.

The Chevy Spark EV was expected to be released by the end of summer, but it seems GM just couldn’t wait any longer to get its latest EV to market. The Spark EV is available for purchase for around $27,495 MSRP depending on options (this does not including rebates).

When the tax credit is factored in, you can purchase the car for as low as $19,995, a very  reasonable price. GM is also offering a lease option on the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV. You can lease the car for $199 for a three-year lease with $999 down at signing.

On Chevrolet’s website, the company does a good job of summing up the cool aspects of this newest addition to the Chevy family. Here is what the Chevrolet Spark EV website says :

“Be electric in the all-new 2014 Spark EV. Put gas stations in your rearview mirror, live outside the boundaries of bus schedules and finally explore the world beyond the last train stop while enjoying the superior electric range offered by Spark EV. Drive gas and tail pipe emissions-free with instant power and surprising performance. Brace yourself for the thrill of 400 ft.-lb. of torque. With a finely tuned ride along with instant torque, you’ll catch yourself smiling every inch of every city mile.”
