2015 Spark Gets a New Battery

Current Chevy Spark

We all know the Chevy Spark EV as being one of the most efficient vehicles on the market. This hatchback has the ability to go 82 miles on a fully charged battery which saves you a lot of money at the pump. For the 2015 model year, the Spark is getting a smaller more refined battery which will save drivers kWh and will also shed a few pounds from the EV. Chevrolet says that the performance specs of the Spark EV will remain unchanged.

Currently the Spark EV uses a 21-kWh lithium-ion battery assembled by Brownstown. For the 2015 model year, the Spark is getting a 19-kWh battery system that will use 192 LG Chem cells. LG Chem cells are used in other GM EVs like the Volt and its luxurious sister, the ELR. The great news is that the all-new Spark will still qualify for the $7,500 tax credit and its suggested retail price will remain the same for 2015: $26,685 plus destination.
