A few questions for Spark EV owners

9788 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Norton
We own a Volt 2017 as our Only car today. We are starting to need a second car, so I am looking into a used Spark EV or Fiat 500e, which are around 9k (or below) for 2015 and fairly low mileage.

I have the following questions for the owners of the spark out there.

1- Did you consider the Fiat 500e when you got your Spark, and if so what made you choose the Spark over the Fiat
2- Have you seen any battery issues / degradation after the first 2 -3 years or more.
3- What is your average Mileage on a full charge under reasonable driving conditions
4- Any other maintenance issue coming up after 3 years?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I'm leasing a 2015 Fiat 500e. At the time (March 2015), we had been looking at used Volts, but went for the 500e because there was a $98/mo lease that was too good to pass up. We didn't really look at the Spark EV because the wife thought the 500e was "too cute".

No problems with the Fiat, just two routine software updates. Hard to tell about the battery during the winter, but if I'm not using the heater I still see 4.5 miles per kWH.

Potential problem with the 500e is the smart phone app. Fiat says the app will be discontinued after three years. The GPS unit is a Tom-Tom (2015 cars) that is a dash top unit that sort of blocks my vision, and the Tom-Tom service is too expensive for me to keep active.
