Ontario, British Columbia, and Quebec are welcoming the Chevrolet Spark Electric Vehicle in 2016. The Spark EV was previously only available to Canadian fleet buyers and some U.S. states, but will now become an exciting option for consumers who can take advantage of their province’s incentive programs.
In Ontario, the incentive could range from $5,000 – $8,500 towards the purchase or lease of an eligible, new plug-in hybrid electric or battery electric vehicles. The rebate is determined by the vehicle’s battery capacity. Homeowners can also apply for rebates up to $1000 towards the installation of 240 V Level 2 home chargers for their garage or driveway.
With an EPA-rated 132 km range, the Chevy Spark’s exciting 327 lb-ft of torque makes a standstill to 60 mph in just 7.2 seconds. The Spark’s DC quick-charge can replenish the batteries up to 80 percent in roughly 20 minutes.
With the Spark’s primary audience being young drivers, this electric vehicle may get attention it deserves from green-minded Canadians. Look for the rollout of this smart Chevy at Queenston by the end of this year!
