Chevrolet Spark EV Sales More Than Doubled In 2015
Chevrolet Spark EV sales in the U.S. increased by roughly 130% in 2015.
In total, 2,629 Spark EVs were sold in 2015, compared to 1,145 in 2014.
Great lease offers, combined with high availability manifested in peak sales of 920 in April when every fourth Spark sold in the U.S. was electric.
The situation has calmed since then, but Spark EV’s share among all Sparks began to climb again to exceed 10% in November and 11% in December.
For January of 2016, 139 Spark EVs were sold, which represented 12% of the total Sparks sold (1,121). (Full January 2016 plug-in sales report can be found here)
The fate of Spark EV is still officially unclear as GM is gearing up to introduce the Bolt EV.
Very strong odds are that 2016 will be the last year for GM’s first pure EV offering since the EV1 in America, as the plug-in model did not get the refresh/upgrade for 2016 as the petrol model did. Think of it as the ELR of the Chevrolet lineup , in other words GM getting some extra value out of the end of an isolated production run.
