A few questions for Spark EV owners

9785 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.

Spark EV Answers

I have two Spark EV's and love them. Great urban car and very quick and maneuverable. For a small car it feels remarkably roomy inside.
1) The leases on the Spark EV's were simply to good to pass up - nothing down and $149/month for 36 months but with the California rebate it drops down to about $70/month if you amortize the rebate out over the term. I do like the looks of the Fiat 500e but at the time they could not compete with the Spark EV lease.
2) Consistently get the advertised 82 miles per charge after 2 years for both. No degradation but I live in Los Angeles with the mild climate year round.
3) Same answer as 2).
4) Zero maintenance issues except for 3 recalls.
I highly recommend the Spark EV.
