Trailer hitch with lighting cable installed for 350$ can

Just a FYI,

I went last fall to a trailer hitch dealer here in Quebec , Canada to have a removable trailer hitch installed for 350$ , including all lighting harnesses.

Test drove my 2014 Spark with a 4 x 8 trailer full of wood , and lost only 30% capacity on the ride.

What an amazing little car!

Re: Upgrade to Fast DC charging?

It was done three or four times here in Quebec by an independant EV car repair shop. With original GM parts.

Takes 12 hours, and 2200$ Canadian dollars.

Cheers,
Jean-Francois

Will need to check with Chevy, nothing aftermaket is used, only Genuine Chevy parts. So my best guess is NO. 3. Can...

Re: Bolt 7.2 kWh onboard charger on Spark EV?

Not possible on the Spark from what we have seen with the DC Fast Charge port Upgrade. The contacts leading to the battery would not withstand that current... It is sad that they have not oversized these DC bus bars.

Re: DC fast charge option installed successfully

This will be great for some owners ! Is this a kit of parts from Chevy and a SW upgrade from Chevy? No, it is not a kit. But the junction box holding the DC Contactor and PCB controller needs to be ordered from Chevy, all the rest of the cabling needs to be built and routed to quite a few location ...

Our shop successfully converted the first Chevy Spark EV to include the Fast Charge option , with 8 hours on labor (learning, recabling , jonction box replacement ...) The next install shoul...
