Opel Ampera: First Electric Vehicle to Go Anywhere Anytime

How it works Ampera - Part 1

The Opel Ampera is Europe's first electric vehicle to enable 'go anywhere at any time' mobility. First deliveries of the series production car will be made before the end of this year. The wheels of the Ampera are electrically driven at all times. A 16 kWh lithium-ion battery pack feeds an 111 kW/150 hp electric drive unit to deliver between 40 and 80 km of electric operation with zero emissions – depending on terrain, driving technique and temperature – when fully charged. According to the ECE R101 regulation for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, the Ampera consumes less than 1.6 l/100 km and emits less than 40 g/km CO2 (preliminary data).
