Re: battery warranty in writing location?

I understand the concepts of "range anxiety" and "go with what you know", but couldn't you easily only do 3 stops? Or aren't any of the DCFCs on the bay-side of the Altamont convenient for where you are headed? There are obviously a slew in Livermore-Pleasanton for out-and-back stops, but couldn't ...

Re: battery warranty in writing location?

Good gravy. Gives me flashbacks to the early days when i got a 2014 spark in late 2013 and the charger port was made wrong and NO superchargers would work on it........ Why on Earth would it not work with a Spark??? What so different about a Sparks system?? Well, as for the battery range on my 2016...

Re: battery warranty in writing location?

EA chargers do not work for the Spark??!! This is not good news! WTH man! Electrify America chargers manufactured by ABB do not work for charging Spark EVs. Electrify America chargers manufactured by BTCPower and possibly Signet (I have only tried one) work just fine . Unfortunately, in California ...

Re: battery warranty in writing location?

Every Friday I have to drive my 2016 Spark EV from my home to Oakland, CA and back. This trip takes me over two Kwh-eating passes. To this I have recently added using the cabin heater as it is cold in the late evening when I return and I have to have the headlights on too. The total round trip is 1...

Re: calculating cost of electricity used

At approximately 13 cents per kwh and average of 4.6 mi per kwh. My cost is 3 cents per mile. I drive about 100 miles per week so it cost me $3 per week and $12 per month. My PG&E rate is currently $0.23 per kWh and goes up quickly if I exceed the daily baseline rate. At 75% L1 charging efficiency,...

Re: battery warranty in writing location?

So, to buy or not to buy, that is the question. Getting a Bolt is tempting, but lots more $$. The Spark would be enough for another 2-3 years for the commute, but then the battery will be gone enough to where it may not make the distance...... then what?? Warranty? maybe. Sell it? it be worth like ...

Re: battery warranty in writing location?

I purchased my 2016 Spark EV 2LT as a used vehicle with 6,500 miles on the odometer. At 10,000 miles, my "calculated" battery capacity was 17.7 but at 11,000 miles, my TorquePro measured battery capacity was 16.8 kWh. My most recent TorquePro battery capacity measurement for my 2016 Spark EV is 14.9...

Re: Problems with fast charging

I am driving Chevy Spark EV MY2015 with fast charging option. While charging at different fast-charging stations I found that Spark is not able to charge at every station. For example, it charges at ABB stations but does not charge at Delta stations. I read the forum and found that it could be the ...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

The inability to charge at Electrify America stations populated with chargers manufactured by ABB should be a concern to all drivers of a Spark EV having the DCFC option. What can we do? Log onto Electrify America's website, and file a complaint. They want to hear from us, so...…. let's oblige them!...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

It's ben a month since last I checked and these are still not open. :roll: https://www.plugshare.com/location/193079 I hate to burst your bubble but, these are ABB charging stations and, so far, I have not been able to charge my 2016 Spark EV at any ABB charger offered by Electrify America. But.......
