What Is the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV?
The 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV is a four-seat all-electric compact hatchback that's based on the gas-powered Chevrolet Spark, and it's available in 1LT or 2LT trim levels. It competes with the Nissan Leaf, Fiat 500e and Smart ForTwo. The standard Spark is covered separately on Cars.com.
What's New on the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV?
For 2015, the Chevrolet Spark EV adds a three-month/3-GB data trial of the built-in OnStar 4G LTE's Wi-Fi hot spot function.
How Does the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV Compare to Other All-electric Vehicles?
Handling and braking are unresponsive compared with the Fiat 500e, but the Spark EV offers better backseat room, comfort, technology, utility and overall value. The Smart ForTwo costs less and is offered in a convertible version, but it has only two seats. For more interior room, the Nissan Leaf is a strong option, although it is more expensive.
What Features in the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV Are Most Important?
The front-wheel-drive 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV comes with an electric motor that produces 140 horsepower and 327 pounds-feet of torque. It uses a single-speed automatic transmission with a traditional shifter and has strong acceleration.
Significant standard features include body-colored door handles, low-rolling-resistance tires, active shutters, a rear spoiler, cloth seats, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, power windows, a digital instrument cluster, Chevy MyLink touch screen, an OnStar communication system with 4G LTE internet connectivity and Wi-Fi hot spot, an outside temperature display, AM/FM stereo and Apple Siri Eyes Free voice recognition system. Available features include fog lights, DC quick charging, leatherette (imitation leather) seats, steering-wheel phone and audio controls, cruise control and power locks.
As required in all new cars, the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV includes antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and front airbags. Ten airbags are found throughout the car, and a six-month trial of OnStar automatic crash notification, stolen vehicle assistance and roadside assistance is included.
Should I Buy the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV?
The Chevrolet Spark EV has a larger cargo area and rear seat than many of its all-electric competitors, but it's still not spacious. If you're expecting the same dimensions or responsiveness as a gas-powered compact car, you may be disappointed. It does offer excellent equivalent fuel economy, and an available high-voltage DC fast-charge option is designed to charge the Spark EV to 80 percent in 20 minutes.
