Chevrolet Spark EV

As we reported on May 1, Chevrolet Spark EV sales skyrocketed to a record-high of 920 units in April.  We attributed high sales to the Spark EV's killer lease deal and, as it turns out, our guess was spot on.

Annalisa Bluhm from Chevrolet communications told Autoblog that 94% of the 920 Spark EVs sold in April were retail leases.  That works out to 864.8 leased Spark EVs, which we've rounded to 865.  That leaves just 55 Spark EVs that were sold in April.

Bluhm stated:

"In those states which offer Spark EV, you can get a 1LT Spark EV for less than a 1LT Spark, with more features. Factor in that you will save approximately $82 per month by abstaining from gas, and it's easy to see why people went crazy for the Spark."

We prefer the term bonkers, but crazy works too.
