2016 Chevy Spark EV?

Fri Oct 23, 2015 12:21 pm

Does anyone have the latest info on the status of a 2016 Chevy Spark EV? I found the following in a recent article about the 2016 Chevy Spark in Green Car Reports: "The Spark EV? It's off the radar for the 2016 model year, as Chevy gears up for its all-new Bolt electric car coming in about a year." I am not sure if this means Chevy will just use the 2015 vehicle for 2016 as well or drop it all together.

I haven't heard much either. From what I read earlier in the year, the '2016' spark will just be a 2015 spark with no noticeable changes. I assume by "off the radar" the article means that Chevy is not really talking about it or pushing sales because there is nothing to discuss. Not that they talked much about the 2015 model very much either, but still. :lol:

Chevy's site still lists a 2016:
http://media.chevrolet.com/media/us/en/ ... /2016.html

If that has changed and they are not even going to offer a '2016', then they'll probably just sell off any remaining 2015 inventory if they have it.

There's none for 200 miles where I live. There were two 2015 a week ago, but disappeared the next day. Also, $139/mo lease seem to have expired recently; it was there in the beginning of Oct. Chevy web site shows 2016 to be pretty much the same as 2015.

I thought someone said it would get the Google/Apple integration, which would be nice. Nothing about it listed here though:
http://media.chevrolet.com/media/us/en/ ... /2016.html

As I drive my Spark EV more and more, all I can say is if the Bolt is as fun to drive, with more refinement, and quietness of the Volt (for example), they're going to have a winner on their hands. We shall see.

I agree, but hopefully the torque steer can be minimized while retaining the high power output.

Mark, I hope to see you on the road one of these days!

My recollection of a previous discussion is the 2016 will be identical to the 2015 with no Apple Car Play.

Yeah, maybe if they made it a real wheel drive.

when i saw this today, i first thought it looked like a next gen Spark! is it just a bit bigger, with 2x the range, and faster acceleration?

quite a bit bigger, about the same acceleration, 200+ mile range, some very interesting technology.
