Re: Sudden & Major Drop in Range on Meter

Has she been running the heater at full blast? With this cold weather, I've been running the heater a lot, and it really impacts my range. Now I could wear heavy clothing and keep the heat turned off but that's not me. I can't stand being cold. When I got in my car this A.M., my mid range was 78 mil...

I'm Amazed What This Car Will Hold

I'm so pleased with how much this car can carry. For Thanksgiving we had to take a card table and 6 folding chairs with us to help with seating at our family gathering. The table and chairs fit flat in the back of the Spark with plenty of space for more. We didn't have to remove the back seat headre...

Re: Heater affecting range?

Yes running the heater on both my Volt and our Spark EV decreases the range by as much as 25%. Using the heater sparingly and using the seat warmers is way more efficient if you are dressed a bit warmer. Good idea on the seat warmers. I'll give them a try. I warmed the car up in the garage the othe...

Heater affecting range?

We've been having some cold mornings here. No frost yet, but nights have dipped into the 30's. I'm finding the heater has been dropping my range at a noticeable rate. No big thing, but noticeable. When I'm not running the heater, I basically use no range on my 4 mile drive. I drive through winding r...

Re: Spark EV sputtering for the other 48?

I had to travel 77 miles from home to pick up my Spark in Lompoc, Ahh, so you're the one who nabbed the "electric blue" one they had! If my wife wasn't particular about color, I might've gotten it first. ;) Yep. That was me. :) Have you been able to get one? It seems to be so difficult to find thes...

Re: Spark EV sputtering for the other 48?

I live in Central California and at this time, the closest Spark EV is in Santa Barbara, 120 miles away from me. I had to travel 77 miles from home to pick up my Spark in Lompoc, and I haven't seen any more being listed for that dealership. There is no push to sell these wonderful little cars in my ...

Re: Buying? Like actually purchasing - Am I alone?

Am I the only one wanting to purchase the car instead of leasing it? I understand the tech evolution value of leasing but I plan to put so many miles on this thing that it'll cost me too much in overages! Plus I wouldn't get the tax credit and will have to play the pricing/shady deal game with the ...
