Opel Ampera

Anyone who wants to be electrically road must suffer. Pure eAutos are usually small, narrow and act like fresh from the hardware store. But the battery always goes after a few dozen kilometers from the juice. Or they look like a Lotus sports car, creating 300 kilometers and cost as much as a condo.

For everyday use but keep the statisticians but rarely the customer, the long range and short refueling stops are used.

At Opel, we see it that way and developed the electric car Ampera. If he goes out after 60 kilometers of driving the eSaft, automatically turns on a gasoline engine as a generator and supplies the electric motor with electricity.

The Ampera, Opel executive says Alain Visser, is a brand campaign on wheels, because it turns visions into reality. And that one should also look at him. Accordingly, it differs significantly both inside and quickly recognizable from everything under the logo of the Opel lightning else is currently on the road.

Who almost 50,000 euros for a family car like the Ampera emits, which is around 20,000 euros more than for example an Insignia from the same manufacturer who wants to not only drive car comfortably. Wants to be able to express, above all, is a distinct statement. Image form. Look, we are in the vanguard.

We are responsible for the planet. Be where we are, there is progress. Accordingly, some large customers have already ordered the Ampera for their fleets.

Coca Cola reported, Opel quite proud, is one of them.

If you are with the Ampera, the need to complain about lack of attention not because even before many acoustically register, to be acoustically nothing register if he rolls over on them, its futuristic design already attracted interest. Even the front of the vehicle is unmistakable with its luxuriant headlamp housings in the form of a boomerang. And also the interior reflects the technical claim. Less by the two color monitors on the center console and in front of the driver, but more by the apparent lack of conventional switches instead, there are sensors that react with gentle pressure on the flat surface of the center console.Otherwise: Who in the 4.5 meter long Ampera takes place, which is found in your average sedan of the lower middle class again. The front seats are comfortable, firm, offer good lateral support and can slide back.

The steering wheel can be adjusted in depth and slope. There are two rear seats. Say the place is neat, but not luxurious: The sloping roof provides for large passengers for limited headroom and even the knee around it is at very front seats pushed back a bit tight.

A little disturbs the large central tunnel that separates the car lengthwise is part of the 288 cells of lithium-ion battery is housed, which power the electric motor with electricity. The rest of the cells is installed transversely behind the rear seats. Weighs 198 kg and the battery does not only provide a pleasant, low center of gravity of the car, but also for a considerable with 1.7 tonnes unladen weight sumptuous.

There remain a mere 270 kilograms payload.

Since it comes in handy that the battery also reduces the space for the trunk. With the rear seats folded is 310 liters 50 liters less than, for example, in an Opel Astra and the 200 liters of scarce than most conventional sedans of middle class. For normal street it goes well in the Ampera four to five-on cases can be accommodated without much trouble. Or an ordinary weekend shopping with several crates.

If you need more storage space, which can fold down the rear bench seat and thus comes to 1005 liters of luggage space. A bit annoying: When tonneau cover is a pretty cheap acting, fummeliges cloth.The Ampera will be launched by pressing a button, the car key can remain in your pocket. A short beep indicates that it can now go off and the screen display comes to life. Hear otherwise is nothing.

Rest. Silence all around. Even if you usually classifies the sonorous bollern a V8 engine as classical music, you are lost in the Ampera quickly: This silence is addictive. And they will. Who the massive selector lever on the center console from the park position to D and represents the foot accelerator pressed, which comes fast to the true roles but the silence remains.

Only gradually did the rolling noise of tires and the wind be louder.

How to travel fast is, can be selected, even a sports mode for best performance. Who are daring enough, in about nine seconds from 0 to 100 km / h The electric motor drives the Ampera nevertheless forward with 111 kW/150 hp and a maximum torque available from the start of 370 Nm. Top speed is electronically limited at 161 but km / h in the city but that does not matter, and on the highway would be about 130 km / h the eco-image anyway only detrimental.

Also educates the Ampera his driver playfully. The representation of a small ball in the display indicates, that one is effectively on the road. As long as the ball is entwined with leaves and moves in the middle of a scale, it is the right place on the road and not in slow speed.

If too much zest the ball travels in the scale up and changes color from green to yellow.

Gasoline in the background

If you drive normally and transport about his …, comes with simple battery power far from 40 to 80 kilometers. That is enough in most cases for the day s work of a German driver. Who wants to be yet not fear that he will lie or first has forced pause for four hours at an outlet.The battery is exhausted, and barely noticeable automatically switches the petrol engine of the Ampera. If you listen carefully, can hear the soft hum of the 1.4-liter petrol and the vibrations are to be perceived weak. Moreover, in the display in front of the driver instead of the battery icon displays a fuel pump.

The ECOTEC gasoline comes from the GM group shelf and has been modified only slightly for the Ampera. The little four-cylinder engine delivers 63 kW/86 hp more, he must not, because it is usually only used as a power generator and the car does not directly power. The current which it produces migrates to the electric motor which drives the car still forward. Depending on the power demand changes of gasoline between four speed levels. Only when he has to plow right, he is even a little bit louder.

The fuel tank of 35.2 liters of regular gasoline is sufficient for approximately 440 km by road. Then the next stop at the gas station is due. Or wall outlet.

Cheap the green conscience is not at least in the acquisition: The basic version will cost 42,900 euros. With the launching end of the year it will be in Germany anyway once a fully equipped ePionier Edition for 48,200 euros. So lush, the purchase price for the Opel Ampera is so low maintenance costs.

Who is with him purely electric road which comes under the current electricity prices by more than three Euro 100 kilometers. And even in the Euro-mix adds just put together a fuel consumption of less than 1.6 liters per 100 kilometers.The biggest problem, however, would be to ever get hold of a Ampera. Much more than 5,000 reservations Opel lie claims to be already available. And already, Opel s parent General Motors comes up with orders not.

For the German market until the end of 2012 just 3000 pieces are provided.
