A killer new lease deal and a $1,650 price reduction led to a boom in sales for the Chevrolet Spark EV.
As we detailed just two weeks ago, the Spark EV's $129 per month lease deal led to a buying frenzy at one California dealership. Well, as it turns out, that buying frenzy extended well beyond just that one location.
Chevy Spark EV Deal
In April, Chevrolet sold 920 Spark EVs, an all-time record high for single-month sales. This result also marks the first time the EV has outsold its PHEV counterpart, Chevrolet Volt - which sold 905 copies in April.
The previous high for Spark EV sales in a single month was 182 units back in May 2014.
It appears as though General Motors has found the sweet spot for pricing (new pricing moves the base LT model from $27,645 to $25,995) for its electric Spark. It's hard to beat $139 per month with $0 due at signing.
We do wish that GM would make its Spark EV available nationwide. Imagine what the sales volume would be if the electric Spark was available in more than just 3 states.
