Chevy Spark Named Most Fuel Efficient Vehicle

November 19th, 2014 by

When you shop Chevrolet dealers in Cincinnati, Ohio, you can find a wide range of fuel-efficient new and used vehicles, helping you to double down on doing your part for the environment. Not only will you be driving a car that uses less gas, but you’ll also be reducing demand for new car production.

If you buy a used Chevy Spark, you can feel even better about what you are doing to help save the planet.

For the second year in a row, the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy have named the Spark “The Most Fuel Efficient Vehicle.” Specifically, the two agencies gave the award to the 2015 Spark EV hatchback, but the car builds on technology that has been used in previous Spark models.

The 2015 Chevy Spark gets an impressive 119 gallons per mile when averaging out gas and electric usage. That beats the Nissan Leaf EV, which gets 114 miles per gallon combined. Its besting of the Leaf is especially impressive since the Leaf was an innovator in the field and was one of the first electric car models on the market.

The Spark isn’t a lightweight just because it’s eco-friendly. It gets 400 pounds per foot of torque, and it is able to go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds.

The Spark has been a popular model for Chevy and has maintained good sales. However, it continues to be available for new sales only in Oregon and California. If you shop used car dealerships in Cincinnati, you can get lucky and find an older Spark model that has been sold or traded in by a West Coast transplant.

When you shop used car dealerships in Cincinnati, you can also find other fuel-efficient Chevy models, such as the Volt.
