GM took this step because of the rapidly falling demand. In its native, American market, its circulation last year decreased by a third – to 24.4 thousand pieces. Meanwhile, the Spark is the cheapest Chevrolet in the US. They ask for it from 13.6 thousand dollars. The car is equipped with a 99-horsepower gasoline aspirated 1.4 paired with a manual gearbox or a CVT.
According to Cars Direct, the release of the hatchback is planned to be discontinued already during this year. After that, in the States, the role of an entrance ticket to the Chevrolet owners’ club will be tried on by the Trax crossover worth from 21 thousand dollars.
In Ukraine, this model is sold in the previous generation, which is supplied from Uzbekistan. The car is produced on the assembly line of UzAuto Motors. Under its hood is a 1.25 petrol “aspirated” with a capacity of 85 horsepower. The unit is paired with an automatic transmission Aisin.
