We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, and was able to spend some time outside enjoying the weather. As one of the most reputable Cincinnati used car dealers, we here at McCluskey Chevrolet sure enjoy spending our free time right here in the Queen City. Roaming the streets, visiting locally owned shops and restaurants, and strolling through the beautiful city parks, are just a few ways we love enjoying this beautiful city. We love to hear about what you love most about the city, so always feel free to comment and let us know! Aside from our love of Cincinnati, we also (obviously) love all things automotive. Chevrolet vehicles are our specialty, so whenever we hear news about the automotive brand, we love to share it with you!

The Chevrolet Spark EV is a popular electric compact car, that has had the automotive community buzzing since it was first introduced onto the market. General Motors has announced that the 2015 version of the Chevy Spark EV will be shedding a few pounds for its big debut. Currently, the Spark EV uses a 21-kWh lithium-ion batter pack, which will be replaced in the newer model. The 2015 Spark will be equipped with a 19-kWh battery unit that will use 192 Chem cells. While the new battery means that the Spark will lose a whopping 86 pounds, it does not mean that the performance will be compromised. The 2015 Spark EV will remain with its EPA-estimated 82 mile range, and its 119 MPGe. Looking to purchase the new version of the Spark and want even better news? The 2015 Spark EV will remain at it’s $26,685 price point, and will qualify for a $7,500 tax credit.

Now has never been a better time to purchase a new fuel-efficient vehicle. While the 2015 Spark EV is not yet available, it will be soon – and you won’t want to miss out on getting behind the wheel of one!
