Chevrolet Spark pricing gets official

Chevrolet has offered up the official pricing on its Spark EV -- the little vehicle will carry an MSRP of $27,495. Even though the outright purchase price for the Spark is $27,495, people who qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit will be able to get that purchase price down to $19,995.
 
People interested in the Spark EV that live in certain areas of California could also qualify for up to an additional $2,500 off purchase price.
 
Chevrolet is also offering a very attractive lease option for the small electric vehicle that most people will probably choose. The lease option is for 36 months at $199 per month. That lease price puts the monthly out-of-pocket cost for the Spark on par with the Nissan Leaf and the Fiat 500e. The Spark lease does require a $999 down payment, which doesn't include tax, title, registration and other dealer fees.

The EPA estimates that the driving range for the vehicle on a full charge will be 82 miles. The vehicle also uses a SAE combo charger able to recharge the battery to 80% in only 20 min.

A regular, gasoline-engined Spark has an MSRP of $12,185 and get EPA estimated 32/38 mpg (city/highway).

"The Chevrolet Spark EV is the most efficient – and now one of the most affordable - EVs you can buy" said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. "Combined with outstanding infotainment and great design, the fun-to-drive Spark EV is engineered to impress."
 
The Spark EV will be offered through select Chevrolet dealers in California and Oregon beginning in June of 2013.

Those that hate EVs will always find a way put the worst spin on their point of view. No matter how low the price drops the haters will always find a way to make EVs sound like a bottomless money pit.

"$30K? I can buy a nice car for that price!"
"$20K? I can buy a decent car for that price!"
"$10K? I can buy a used car for that price!"
"$5K? I can buy a beater car for that price!"
"$2K? I can buy a nice scooter for that price!"
"$1K? I can buy a awesome bicycle for that price!"
"$100? I can buy a crappy bike for that price!"
"$0? I can just borrow mom's car for that price!"

EVs work for some people and not for others. Period. EVs work for me and the payback is about 1 year. Love only having to put 3 gallons of gas every 3 - 4 months in the Volt.
