I think it might be hard to find a Spark Ev in most states . Our dealer only carries the 1.2 liter version.If I could buy a Spark EV, I will be posting every day. So blame GM for not selling it (or the Volt) in Puerto Rico.
BTW, where are the present Spark EV owners?
So can I assume you have leased the spark?I've had low production, offbeat cars before, but I'd guess there are only 3000-3500 Spark EV's in the wild. That's just not much of a user base to support multiple forums.
Still love ours and waiting for the Bolt to come out.
Absolutely. For two main reasons: I figured technology would be changing and advancing; and the back of my mind didn't fully trust GM, remember the Chevy Vega, Olds Diesel, Caddy Cimmaron, TH250, Mr. Lutz the Hummer man, Daewoo in general, and many other sins. The first has proven true but the worries about GM have not, they do seem to have gotten their act together.So can I assume you have leased the spark?

Guys, it's a free country. You can buy what's for sale.I'm in Massachusetts, and I'd be willing to put my money down today and pick one up if it were available. ...
Understood, but as much as I'd like to do it, I don't have the time in my life at the moment to make such a road trip. Sounds fun though! I priced out shipping services, but the rates were quite high to ship the vehicle all the way across the country and I just couldn't make the numbers work at this point. The idea for me isn't just to drive a pure EV, but to actually make it worthwhile from a cash flow perspective as well, and spending ~2 grand on shipping kills any financial advantage to doing it - I might as well just buy a used gas Spark as I'd probably never offset that initial outlay in a reasonable amount of time. I don't have infinite money.Guys, it's a free country. You can buy what's for sale.
I spent a 2 days of my life, a few hundred dollars and with a one-way U-haul dolly brought my Spark EV home!
Of course you can't do that if you live on an island.
There are shipping companies that will bring a car to you wherever you live. But you do want a Chevy dealer within driving distance with this fun, little, sleeper, hot rod, EV!!

>>... used Spark prices fall into the 10k range, it might be more doable.
>>>I'd definitely want the DC fast charging option.
>>>> Is there any Chevy dealer in MA that will service the Spark EV?....
>Awesome ! And it will only be getting better along the coasts!These are interesting ideas. I didn't realize that the Spark was available in MD.
I live about 350 miles from MD. The Spark EV has about an 80 mile range, right? If it has the DC fast charging option...I wonder if there are enough DC fast chargers along the route to pull it off. 4 or 5 ~20 min stops?
>I just looked at the ChargePoint map showing all DC fast chargers in the Northeast corridor between MD and MA. Just on casual inspection it looks to me like it's already covered well enough to pull it off as is.
>>It's 6 hours to Baltimore on Amtrak's Acela. If things worked out just right I could leave early in the morning and be home in time for supper.
