Price cuts, new reveals, and EV spottings -- Oh my!

GM announced some price drops on two of its plug-in vehicles this past month.

First up: the Spark EV. With a price cut of $1,500 the car now costs $14,995 after incentives and bonus cash. GM’s official stance is that the car is still only available in California, Oregon and Maryland, but we’re seeing that Ann Arbor’s Suburban Chevrolet dealership has an online listing for the 2015 Spark. Could it indeed be coming our way? It’s possible, but the same thing happened a year ago with a few dealerships in Ohio. The car was never rolled out in the Midwest and the listings were chalked up to clerical errors.


Two days after announcing the Spark’s new, low price, GM dropped the price of the 2016 ELR, which has proved to be a slow seller. The ELR now lists for $58,495 after tax incentives and comes with a little extra power and torque, by virtue of being a newer model.

Cadillac CT6In other news from GM-- a plug-in hybrid version of the new Cadillac CT6 was officially revealed in Shanghai. With an 18.4 kilowatt hour battery pack, the car is expected to have a range of around 30 miles. has a few pictures of the non-PHEV CT6 from the Shanghai auto show, guessing that the PHEV version will look relatively similar.
