GM are desperate to grab the headlines with the Ampera in Europe, and they’ve done a full reveal – pictures, video, the works, this afternoon, instead of waiting until tomorrow as was expected.
Due to go on sale when is anybody’s guess. The Ampera offers a 50km range from electric charge only, and up to 500 km range when used in conjunction with the engine. According to GM, the Ampera (which will launch as a UK Car as the Vauxhall Ampera) will recharge from a standard domestic socket in 2-3 hours. GM are also negotiating with companies Europe to provide recharging stations.
We’ve already covered the information on the Opel Ampera in previous posts, so here for your delight is an image gallery of the car and the video released with it.
