\r\n Erick Belmer\'s "Sparkie" is nearing 400,000 miles. At the current rate, he will reach this major milestone in 4-5 months. Mary Barra and Chevy marketing should turn this into a media event, and award Erik, who is a GM employee, a new 2017 upon reaching 400,000 miles. This would make a great commercial, and do more for advertising the electric vehicle division to new buyers than anything which has been done to date.\r\n

    \nCould award him a MY18 which is projected to be available in 4-5 months...However, 400K is somewhat an odd duck of a milestone, 500K is a far more powerful number...I\'d rather see GM offer to cover any repairs to get to 500K then offer him a new ride once 500K is reached...\r\n

    \r\n 400,000 is a great achievement in this time period but 500,000 will be much more notable and at a time when most other car companies are coming out with new plugins and hopefully doing some advertising.
    \n Chevrolet can say this is just one of the plugins we offer .\r\n

    \nI get the psychological impact of the 500,000 number. However, most cars driving the average 12k miles per year will only have half this in the vehicles lifetime, and 400k is double this. Whether 400 or 500k, either milestone would be a great marketing opportunity for Chevy. I hope they are at least aware (I would think so with him being a GM employee).\r\n

      Default Countdown to 400,000 miles!

      Erick Belmer's "Sparkie" is nearing 400,000 miles. At the current rate, he will reach this major milestone in 4-5 months. Mary Barra and Chevy marketing should turn this into a media event, and award Erik, who is a GM employee, a new 2017 upon reaching 400,000 miles. This would make a great commercial, and do more for advertising the electric vehicle division to new buyers than anything which has been done to date.
