Vauxhall says the new Ampera-e will have a longer battery life than most electric cars and that pricing will be affordable.
The new car will be a five-door hatchback combining innovative electric-mobility with state-of-the-art connectivity and exciting driving dynamics, says Vauxhall.
Announcing the Ampera-e at the CAR Symposium in Germany, GM Chairman & CEO Mary Barra said:
“GM and Vauxhall has always been convinced that electric cars will play a defining role in future mobility. The game-changing technology of the Ampera-e is a significant step toward realizing that vision. Our new battery electric car is also another boost for Vauxhall’s reputation for making innovative engineering widely accessible.”
Dr Karl-Thomas Neumann, from Opel, Vauxhall’s parent added: “The new Ampera-e will open the road to electric mobility by breaking down the barriers of high price and short driving range.”
