GM Has “No Plans” For Chevrolet Spark EV Nationally
A few days ago we learned that the Chevrolet Spark EVs equipped with DC fast chargers would land in late December.
Then, we learned that the fast charging option would cost around $800 and that Chevrolet was pleased with Spark EV sales results so far – given the very limited inventory that had been made available…and that GM was indeed going to be shipping more depth to dealers in California and Oregon.
But what of the rest of the country?
For the longest time we have been wondering “Will or won’t GM bring the Spark EV nationally?” Most have speculated that it was a given at some point, and that the question was not “will they?” but “when will they?”
In fact, just about every story we run on the Spark EV has such speculation in the comments.
So while speaking with GM about their plans to bring more Spark EVs to the United States, we took the opportunity to pick the General’s brain about what lies ahead for the Chevy Spark EV geographically:
“Right now (for the Spark EV) – just California and Oregon. We’re always evaluating the potential to expand into other markets –but no plans to expand at this time.”
Therefore, if you live in New York, and were planning on zipping around Manhattan in your own Spark EV this Christmas, you should probably not go looking for any new SAE Combo fast charging stations in your area just yet.
Still, they didn’t say it wasn’t ever coming.
