Certain companies in the electric vehicle field generate a lot of flack. LionEV is one example. The last time we wrote about Spark-EV (and the time before) all sorts of accusations flew in our comments section about the reliability of the company's statements and products. There shouldn't be as big of an outcry this time around, as we're just here to report that Spark-EV has announced the discontinuation of one model, the 6000zk 6000/2 (also known as the Flybo) by Spark-EV. Spark-EV's Michael Papp said in an email that quality concerns and the fact that other companies were "importing the same or similar vehicle" meant that Spark-EV would drop the model. Papp said his company will only sell vehicles that are exclusive to Spark-EV. Most of Spark-EV's business comes from importing vehicles from China and converting them to electric drive.
The more interesting news in the email, thought, is that the Flybo announcement is going to be the first "of three major updates to our company which you will receive via email." Read the whole thing after the jump and speculate away in the comments.


Email from Spark EV:

Thank you for showing interest in the offerings of Spark-EV, at www.spark-ev.com.

This is one of three major updates to our company which you will receive via email.

Our first vehicle we ever imported and introduced, the 6000zk 6000/2, will no longer be carried by Spark-EV.

There are two major reasons; One, quality issues continued to plaque [sic] the vehicle, no matter how much pressure was put on the manufacturer. Spark-EV will only sell what we feel are the highest quality vehicles, and inconsistency in the quality of this vehicle has marked its' downfall.

Two, there are no fewer than 5 other companies across the nation that are now importing the same or similar vehicle. Spark-EV will only sell vehicles that are exclusive to Spark-EV.

Watch for updates 2 and 3.
