Chevrolet Spark EV Sees Price Drop, Bonus Cash For Base Model

In the market for a 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV? Your wallet will still feel heavy after signing off on the paperwork for the base model.

Chevrolet announced the price for the base Spark EV 1LT will be cut down $1,500 to $25,995, while leasing the EV gets an $80 drop to $139/month for 39 months with no money down upon signing; the down payment was $999.

In addition to the new lease and purchase figures, the brand is also throwing bonus cash on the hood, the amount varying depending on which of the three states — California, Maryland (as of this summer), Oregon — one happens to reside. The California bonus comes to $1,000 in addition to the state’s $2,500 rebate, while Oregonians receive $3,500 outright, and those in Maryland gain $1,200 on top of the state’s $2,300 excise tax exemption.

With the price cuts, bonus cash, state incentives, and the $7,500 federal tax credit, one could drive away from the lot having paid just $14,995 for the pleasure of bouncing around from the office park to the coffee shop and bakery in a vehicle meant to help General Motors come into compliance with fleet economy standards.

    Holy smokes. This is ridiculously cheap ti own/operate. Bring a Californian with a need for a new vehicle as my tbird was rear ended and I already have a Tahoe. I might consider leasing this. I just need to discuss with my landlord if he would approve me paying for a 220 charging socket installed in the garage.

    What are the mileage restrictions on that lease?

    $140/mo with nothing out of pocket is a super deal. Assuming 1000 miles a month, the gas savings alone would make this a nearly free car. I think that's a winner, if I could get one in Florida I would for sure pick one up.

    If you have a short to medium car commute and want to make it in a newish car, there's absolutely no cheaper way to do that than this lease.
