Since the Chevy Spark made it’s debut at the Los Angeles auto show earlier this year, it’s already making waves across the industry. It was just recognized as the ‘Most Efficient U.S. Retail Electric Vehicle’.
Why did the Spark receive such a high honor when it’s still a recent addition to our new Chevrolet lineup? Let us take a moment to go over all that it has to offer our customers in the Woodbridge, VA area.
The first thing that jumped out to us about this EV is that Spark drivers have the potential to save up to $9,000 in fuel costs over the course of five years. That’s huge! Imagine what you could do with several grand in your pocket. Suddenly that amazing summer vacation you’ve been dreaming seems a lot more attainable, doesn’t it?
It’s also able to get up to an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating of 119 MPGe and will drive for 82 miles on a single charge. Other EVs have struggled with achieving a reasonable drive range that won’t leave you sweating when you’re stuck in traffic, miles away from home, but the Spark succeeds where its competitors have failed.
This vehicle was designed to provide the best overall efficiency of any retail EV that has ever hit the market while still providing a decent amount of power so you won’t feel like you’re crawling along the highway. The Spark has 400 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to its electric motor, making for a thrilling driving experience.
The Spark EV is due out this summer, and we can’t wait to take it for a test drive. Can you blame us?
