Although not selling in particularly impactful volumes, the Chevy Spark and Spark EV are much more than just a vehicle being sold to customers. Instead, the sub-subcompact vehicle represents Chevy’s entry into a new segment, making it the first to enter the segment in the United States. And for the 2015 model year, Chevy is giving the Spark EV a few updates.
To start, the EV drops the Titanium body color and swaps the 3.17 final drive ratio axle for a 3.87. Meanwhile, the gasoline-powered Spark gets two new late-availability colors — Salsa and Lime Spark. Both the EV and non-EV models get OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi Hotspot capability, but the EV model will get the feature later than the gasoline version.
Rounding out the changes are minor updates to the Spark EV, including a larger EV Eco badge and several late introduction trim modifications.
