For the first 40 80 kilometers (depending on driving style, and temperature), is supplied by the electricity stored in the lithium-ion battery. While on electricity delivered by the battery, the moves free of gas and tailpipe-emissions. If a trip is required, the gasoline-fueled can seamlessly extend the total range to more than 500 on a full tank.

This range-extending technology makes the the first electric car with the convenience of a conventional automobile.

Drive Modes from to Sports for efficiency and driving fun

The quiet 111 kW/150 hp electric delivers 370 Newton meters from a standstill. It accelerates the from zero to 100 km/h in nine seconds and enables a speed of 161 km/h.

The Normal is the default setting for the Ampera and is to be used most of the time to maximum efficiency. When the level of the battery drops its state-of-charge operating window, the enters extended-range operation, which the gasoline engine runs to sustain the charge and extended-range travel. The battery s is sustained by regenerative braking, the gasoline generator to rest long downhill stretches.

Drivers should this mode after a charge or 10 to 15 minutes before mountainous terrain to enable vehicle capability up sustained

The City mode adapts management to the demands of modern travel. Selecting City engages the range-extender immediately, the energy currently stored in the When City mode is off, the range-extender stops and the is then able to use the energy in the battery for pure electric for example in urban areas or zones.
