Opel Ampera is Euro version of Chevy Volt
The American Chevrolet Volt has already been revealed, not quite ready, but confirming its final form when it does hit production in 2010. Now Opel, GM’s European arm, has revealed its own version of the Volt, calling it the Opel Ampera. While the play on the name is amusing, what is more interesting is the Ampera, just like the Volt, claims an electric-only range of 60 km, with a total range of 500 km aided by a small petrol engine.
The prototype Opel Ampera will be launched at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. For more information on its mechanicals, check out the Chevrolet Volt. The only difference is the Volt uses a 110V socket and the Ampera will use a 220V one.
