In the past few months, we have covered General Motors newest  entry: The Chevy EV Spark.

In a short time, its received good reviews from Consumer Reports and Engadget. And unsurprisingly, GM are looking to make it known just how environmentally and economically friendly the Chevy Spark is. Which is why they’ve released this neat infographic.

SparkEV-Economics

Recently, Inside EVs discussed the newest infograph from GM about the EV Spark’s economic benefits, which include:

  • For every $150 of fuel purchased, a consumer can buy 107 large cups of coffee; Fifteen digital music records; an activity-tracking bracelet; or three pairs of canvas shoes.
  • A person can save 1,500 minutes (a total of one day) from pumping fuel at a local gas station.

However, the best gift when receiving this new vehicle is preventing more fossil fuels into the air.  Try around 130 barrels of crude oil. While the car is only available in Oregon and California, expect this small yet acclaimed vehicle to gain some market traction in wider release.

    • anti_banker

      Looks like I found my answer:

      2014 Chevy spark EV

      MSRP*1 as low as $19,185 (Price after federal tax credit. Net price shown includes the full $7,500 tax credit*1. $26,685 MSRP* †,† without federal tax savings ranging from $0 up to $7,500.)
      It has an 82 mile range.
      No mention on top speed.

      Lastly, the battery is liquid cooled and backed by an “8-year/100,000-mile limited warranty.”
