The Economic Benefits Of Owning A Chevy EV Spark — Infographic

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.
