GM sold 87 Spark EV models in October, bringing the year to date sales of the zero-emission hatchback to 397.
The Spark EV carries a base price of $26, 685 before any tax credits. Buyers are eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit, as well as a $1,500 credit in Oregon and a $2,500 credit in California.
