Electric cars Volt& s lows and highs The Economist

Volt s lows and highs THE jury of European motor-magazine pundits who award the annual “Car of the Year” prize have this year thrown a public-relations lifebelt to a carmaker drowning in negative headlines. Announced as the Geneva motor show opened on March 5th, the prize went to GM s Volt and its slightly restyled European version, the Ampera, an electric car with a petrol-powered generator on board to back up the battery.

And as it starts marketing the Ampera across Europe, GM has also been in the spotlight over ...

We Drive The New Opel Ampera Rev ie

We Drive The New Opel Ampera With ever-increasing pressure on manufacturers to produce more fuel-efficient and eco-friendly vehicles, many have developed electric and Hybrid vehicles. Whilst both variants are successful, they each have their own drawbacks. Opel may have the solution to these issues, with the introduction of its all-new Ampera. The Ampera is neither a fully electric vehicle nor a Hybrid, it’s an Extended-Range Electric Vehicle (E-REV) and thanks to this unique setup it offers realistic range for all journeys. Its 16kWh rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers the Ampera for a distance up to 80 kilometres, with full power available at all times. If you reach its maximum range ...

Opel Ampera Electric to debut in Geneva

Opel Ampera Electric to debut in Geneva We ve been suspecting that Opel would get its own version of the Chevrolet Volt ever since we first knew General Motors was adapting the car for production. It only makes sense that GM would spread the large development expenses to a continent where fuel costs more and is more eco-conscious than the U.S. Now we have official word that the first glimpse of Opel s Volt, now called the Ampera, will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March. From the supplied teaser image, the front has some obvious linage to the Flextreme concept as well as a little bit of the Insignia. The slice of the side profile that s exposed also shows the car s Volt roots. GM spent ...

Opel Ampera test drive review release date price and spec 2014

Opel Ampera test drive Release date | Specification | Price | Review In between 100 % electric drive and some type of hybrid with inner burning engines, GM picked the third way, incorporating the best of both globes. In other words, crossed a highly effective electric engine with a small fuel, which he largely works as a generator, in order to expand the autonomy. As soon as you state electric vehicles, the concern of freedom! ONE HUNDRED km, 150 km, most of all of that is debatable and depends primarily on weather conditions and the wish of the owner to steer financially. Nissan Fallen leave, Peugeot iOn Renault Fluence and the brand-new Zoe, evidently possess particular qualities, yet ...

You plug the car in to your household electric socket and recharge it. Just three hours will give the ...
