After attending the canceled Drive Electric event here in Austin, I think I would like to purchase a Spark EV as a second car rather than waiting additional years for a future model EV that checks all my boxes. I am having trouble finding a search engine site for cars that actually includes the ability to EASILY find one with DC quick charging since none of the ones I tired have any options for searching for EV features. This is not a deal breaker, but I thought having this feature would allow me to use the EV more frequently since there is a bit of sprawl in the Austin metro area.

Is there a site I am overlooking that would let me find a Spark EV with a DC quick charger?

A good site I've used is CarGurus but you still have to rely on the seller to disclose whether the car has fast charging or not. I think you can call GM customer service with the VIN and ask nicely if it has DCFC. I've had to ask the seller to take a picture of the charge port. You'd think they'd want to show this if the car has it because it's such a huge selling point but a lot of times they don't.

Good luck with your search. I test drove one a couple of weeks ago and it was an absolute blast to drive.

Some of the sellers include a photo of the charge door open, showing the DCFC port.
