Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

3rd: The warranty for 2015-16 Sparks is 40% degradation (2014 was 35%). Pretty sure only 2016 is 40%, both 2014 & 2015 are 35%. I don't have the manual for 2015, but someone in this forum furnished pictures to show that the 2015 was warranted to retain 65% capacity during the warranty period. https...

Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

I have regularly pressed GM to give me a number of battery capacity where the replacement warranty to kick in. So far, no dice. I have a 2016, so I'm not sure of my total capacity. I've been told it was 19kWh, and the warranty said 35% degradation, which would be around 12.5k. Has anybody gotten th...

Re: 2014 Drive battery replacement

There was a recent post about this question on this forum. I believe it stated that the battery for the 2014 is no longer but the battery for the 2015 / 2016 can be used with a number of modifications.

Re: 2016 vs 2014

For 5 years, I have had the pleasure of driving a used 2014 2LT w/o DCFC. Absolutely no problems. I have also had the opportunity - my first Spark EV - to drive a leased 2015 Spark EV 2LT with DCFC for three years / 30k miles. Only one problem with some sort of charging issue that required a dealer ...

Re: Battery degredation

I've thought about this a lot. I think it's likely that 30kwh could be fit in the pack, with the improvements that have been made in power density (take the leaf as a somewhat relevant example, which went from 24 to 40kwh in the same space). The challenge IMO is building a solid or "Automotive Grad...
