Electric cars are touted as the transportation mode of the future. That may be the case, but for now they're just too damn expensive for most buyers to afford. Enter the new Chevrolet Spark
EV. Priced at under $25,000 (with federal tax credits), GM's first fully electric car you can buy undercuts the $32k Ford
Focus EV and Nissan
's $27k Leaf by a couple grand, but is still a few grand more expensive than the $21k Mitsubishi
i. It is, however, nearly double the price of a standard Spark (if you don't get the tax credit).
