Vauxhall Ampera enters pre-production testing

As the Chevrolet Volt nears the completion of its pre-production testing, its European cousin has reached an important milestone of its own as the first pre-production Vauxhall Amperas roll off the line at GM’s Pre-Production Operations' assembly line in Warren, Michigan. More vehicles will be added to the pre-production test fleet in the coming months which will be used by engineers both in Europe and the United States to evaluate the progress of its development.

2009 Opel Ampera, new Euro Volt

Opel is set to reveal the Ampera Electric car at this year's Geneva Motor Show, effectively unveiling the European design for the Chevrolet Volt. The five-door, four-seat Opel Ampera uses an identical platform to the Volt, utilising GM's Voltec electric propulsion technology. Like its North American sibling, the Ampera is capable of short trips up to 60km on batter power alone charged via a standard household power outlet.
