Chevy Spark EV Priced at $29,995 in Canada; GM Confirms Public Sales Will Start in 2014 UPDATE: Will Continue To Be Fleet Only
There’s been a bit of back-and-forth on this, but here’s the latest intel: GM Canada has confirmed with l’Association de Véhicules Électriques du Québec that the 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV will
be made available to Canadian consumers in 2014.
Update (November 7th, 2013): George Saratlic, who is Product Communications Manager at GM Canada informs us that the source of this story (AVEQ) is incorrect; and they will be working with them to correct the error.
Mr. Saratilc tells Inside EVs – “The 2014 Spark EV is available in Canada ONLY as a Fleet vehicle. There are no current plans for retail customer sales.”
The Spark’s Canadian MSRP will be $29,995 with transportation charges of $1,550. The SAE Combo quick-charge port will cost an extra $800.
Currently, the Spark EV is only available in South Korea, California, and Oregon, and as a fleet-only offering in Canada. There has been much speculation about whether and when it will expand into the wider market.
So, that’s the latest – we’ll only know for certain when it actually goes on sale.
