Hi everyone. I joined this forum in hope that I'll be getting my own 2012 Spark soon. Is this car not available in Canada yet? I've been looking for a compact car and I narrowed my choices down to just the Spark. On the website it doesn't seem like they sell it.

Welcome.

2012 Sparks were never sold in Canada. The 2013 Spark coming out this fall (i believe) will be the first for Canada and the USA. What were you other compact car choices?

What about the Spark do you like over your other choices?

Hi Everyone, I'm a new SPARK owner in Minnesota, I just bought one today a Denim Blue one and I love it so far. It's cute, cheap, well equiped, and uses less fuel than all the other cars/suv's I've owned, looking forward to not giving a small fortune to the oil companies anymore, can't wait till they sell the electric ones in a year or so.

Probably not good with winter, but I want one anyway. I'll plug it in the garage. Not having to go to the gas station anymore would be the coolest thing. I filled my spark today for the first time, it was empty and it took 8 gallons of gas, felt like I was filling a lawn mower, i had driven 340 miles on the 1st tank. That was a neat feeling, I'm used to watching the numbers scroll around on the gas pump for 10 minutes and feeling like I need to get a second job just to pay for fuel. It's been long enough running on oil, it's time to switch to electric, will help environment, and maybe world problems too.

I don't see why it wouldn't be just as good in winter. Charging shouldn't be an issue. Nor will driving it in winter.

If we do get a Spark EV it's still going to need a gas generator just relying on charging it wont get you far. It will be a while before infrastructure is stable enough that we can do without a generator.
