Opel Ampera Electric Car in Real-world Driving Range

• Automotive journalists compete in ‘Eco Drive Contest’

• than half achieve stated maximum battery-powered range

Rüsselsheim. At the Opel international media presentation in The Netherlands, last month, than one thousand journalists had an to assess the vehicle prior to its at the end of the year. One of the tests in the event’s Drive Contest’ involved the Ampera’s driving range in battery-powered mode by using an driving style.

According to the technical specifications, it is possible to a distance of up to 80 kilometers in pure drive mode on a single of the 16 kWh lithium ion battery. The results in normal road traffic were extremely convincing: 60 percent of the journalists completed the 73 km route on battery power and a quarter had sufficient power to cover at least a further 10 according to the vehicle’s range The most efficient driver have driven a total of 95.3 kilometers on battery alone – roughly 15 kilometers than the Ampera’s stated battery-powered range.

None of the participants risked out of battery power en route the Ampera’s range-extender, a 1.4-liter engine, is used to generate for the 111 kW/150 hp main electric if the battery becomes depleted.

To help dissipate high forces, the front, sides and of the passenger cell are protected by absorbing zones that in a controlled manner.

The electrical safety of the car was also after all the impact tests. The pack of the Ampera, comprising 288 in nine different modules, is in the center of the vehicle, and the vehicle is built around it. Thanks to the vehicle structural design, the pack, is efficiently protected both front and side impacts and remains in its location.
