Vauxhall Ampera

The Vauxhall Ampera packs the punch you’d expect from a V6 and does it with whisper-quiet power. So you get all the performance, with none of the noise. Delivering a dynamic, fun driving experience, only the Ampera makes it exhilarating to be ‘eco’, with 370Nm torque powering you from 0 to 60mph in less than nine seconds.

The Vauxhall Ampera is a game-changer. The first ever Extended-Range Electric Vehicle (E-REV), it offers uncompromised everyday usability, from short commutes to long journeys. A dynamic, spacious five-door electric hatchback with range extension capability, the Ampera is in a class and category all of its own.

Revolutions are about breaking free and bringing about change. The Vauxhall Ampera has a positive environmental ethos that benefits your lifestyle and mobility. It uses electricity alone to drive for up to 50 miles and uses a petrol-powered generator to provide the electricity that allows you to drive up to a further 310 miles. Read on and discover how the Ampera is redefining electric vehicle innovation and why a panel of 59 leading motoring journalists from 23 European countries voted it European Car Of The Year 2012.

Driving electricity Further
This philosophy has put Vauxhall at the
forefront of developing alternative propulsion that uses renewable resources, reduces our dependency on oil and offers you numerous benefits. The Vauxhall Ampera is an Extended-Range Electric Vehicle (E-REV) – the first of its kind on sale in Europe. And it succeeds where pure battery cars are limited, by combining extended-range with improved performance, reliability and handling.

The 16kWh rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers the Ampera for up to 50 miles* of cost-effective battery-powered motoring – making it ideal for commuting. For longer trips, the innovative petrol-powered generator provides the electricity to power the drive unit, allowing you to drive up to another 310 miles* without having to recharge or refuel.

The ampera’s shape is beauty with a purpose. Aerodynamics and airflow played a key role in the sculptured design. Reducing drag improves efficiency, meaning you can drive further and for longer. The sleek and smoothly sculpted front, streamlined roof and aerodynamic door mirrors are designed to improve airflow. Vertical slots on the rear bumper and the lightweight polycarbonate wheel inserts not only reduce drag, but also add to the Ampera’s sporty, high-tech appearance.

The interior of the Vauxhall Ampera combines elegant comfort and roominess with state-of-the-art functionality and usability. From its interactive colour central instrument display to voice recognition technology, all contained within the dynamic flow of the wrap-around facia. Two high-definition displays and superb in-car ergonomics offer you a clear view of the gauges and easy access to functions and controls. Standard features include a leather-trimmed interior, with a choice of complementary interior colours, a leather-covered steering wheel and Electronic Climate Control.
