Good luck GM. You're gonna need it with this one.
Cmon. Give credit where credit is due.

$19k for 82 miles of range is VERY good. Performance is great too, especially in comparison to other EVs.

We all know you have a vendetta against hybrids and EVs but whether you would buy it or not, progress is progress.

It also doesn't appear to be a "hack and slash" job at all...the body and related things haven't changed but the base model Spark is about as cheap as it gets. 5 speed manual or 4 speed automatic, anemic, el cheapo everywhere.

That face is something only a mother could love though.
