The Chevrolet Spark to be Discontinued this Year

With the Spark’s imminent demise, Chevrolet will only have three cars left for sale

  • Production will end in late summer or early fall.

  • The 2022 Spark is priced from $13,600 in the US, and $12,548 in Canada.

  • It is/was the least expensive new car in both countries.

The end of the Chevrolet Spark, never a volume seller, does highlight a few points. One of which is that it was the final small car sold by a North American automaker and that the next least-expensive vehicle in Chevy’s lineup is roughly $10,000 more expensive.

When Chevrolet pulls the plug on the Spark, it will also signify that consumers will have to pay $2,000 to $4,000 more for the next cheapest car for sale. Finally, this will also mean that Chevrolet is essentially no longer in the business of selling cars. All that remains are the slow-selling Camaro and Malibu, and the iconic Corvette.

“The Spark is being produced through August 2022, then it will be phased out of Chevrolet’s product lineup,” a GM spokesperson said as reported by The Drive. “Customers seeking comfort, function, and style at an approachable price still have strong options within Chevrolet’s family of compact SUVs.”

In Canada last year, Chevy moved 6,146 Sparks compared to 2,392 Trax and 7,667 Trailblazers. The latter is priced from $27,948.
