Dismal Chevy Spark EV Sales Make the Volt Look Good

Barra and VoltThe final tallies for 2013 sales are in for the Chevy Volt and its little sister, the Chevy Spark EV. The results are ugly.

While the Volt relies on both a gas engine and electric power, the Spark is actually an electric-only vehicle, assumedly designed to compete with the all-electric Nissan Leaf which had sales of 22,610 for the year. The Spark EV did not compete well, with More

Chevrolet Spark: A good argument for plugging in

Chevy Spark EV Expands to Europe and Korea

The Chevrolet Spark is an international car, designed by General Motors in Korea, and the company intends to sell the plug-in electric version of it there, as well as in Europe.
