The tiny Chevrolet Spark will stick around
The Spark is a minicar, one size down from subcompacts like the Sonic and Ford’s Fiesta. It’s made in South Korea, and that’s one key to why it’s sticking around with a revamp for 2019.
While U.S. sales of the Spark (the blue line in the graph below) have fallen over the last couple of years, they haven’t fallen by a lot. Meanwhile, minicars remain popular in some other markets around the world. There’s no reason for GM to discontinue building the car in its Korean factory, and no reason to stop sending some to the United States for buyers who want a small, fuel-efficient Chevy.
