I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Great EV for the money....

It is hard to understand why more people don't choose to go all electric for at least one vehicle. I have solar panels and with a nice little EV like the Spark, you can save several hundreds of dollars per month. It has more power and acceleration than the gasoline version, all the amenities (AC, power steering with lots of airbags) and will handle 90% of my needs to run around town. If your total travel is less than 60 miles (which happens more often than you would think) it will get you there and back and at the same time pulling away from all the big diesel trucks (and almost any other car) off the line. Electric is the way to go.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
2016 Spark EV

Excellent car, really fun to drive, Great range for one of the many sub 100 mile electric cars.
Regen is amazing and much better than the Leaf... much closer to a Tesla.
Everything about the car is well thought out & very nicely executed.
The value is exceptional providing you lease then car to get all the incentives & discounts off the MSRP at time of purchase - which provides a great value. Then just buy out the lease if you prefer to purchase it over continuing the Lease. At the MSRP, this car will far short of what you would expect for a car at that MSRP. But even then its still a really fun car is you can afford it at MSRP.
It is a cheap car just as the gas Spark is a cheap car, but the electric drivetrain, instrumentation, re-tuned suspension and added creature comforts are superior to many other sub 100 miles EV’s that cost much more, and that makes the Spark the perfect candidate for what an affordable electric car SHOULD be. Electric cars don’t need to be six figure luxury vehicles.
The CCS fast Charger is an excellent option and a must have - recharging at 47kw is amazing & fast.
Only a couple issues/cons I can see.
The Spark is also much more efficient that our Leaf. We average around 5.5-6 miles per KW in the Spark, compared with 4.5 +/- in the Leaf - same driving on the same roads.
1) Chevy hobbled the Spark with a 3.3 kw onboard charger - any Battery electric car should have a minimum 6.6kw charger. Even with a 3.3 kw charger, it re-charges quickly and we get a solid 90-100 miles out of it - up to 120. 3.3kw charges are for plug in hybrids.
2) The heater is not a heat pump, rather, its an electric heater that uses more battery power than necessary. Not an issue for us in AZ as the heater is only used a hand full of days per year. The AC works great and is almost to cold at times.
3) Legroom - this is just my curse being 6’ 10’ tall - my knee hits the Knobs on the lower left console & is overall a bit tight.
Bottom line - Even though our Leaf is more comfortable for me, I prefer to drive the spark and really enjoy it more than the Leaf.
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!

Holy crap I did not expect this kind of quality from a compliance car made by Chevy. It’s a tiny car that feels roomy inside due to genius design. So many upgrades like Bluetooth and leather seats that really I didn’t even pay for. The battery technology is what drew me to the car but I am so blown away by what I actually took home. There aren’t many of these out there but if you’re looking at one just go ahead and pull the trigger. They’re worth it.
