The Vauxhall Ampera review

Monday, July 18, at 5:45PM

I feel confident in that in the micro-niche debate electric and alternative fueled this machine is going to a right old ruckus.

The Vauxhall and it’s sisters, the Opel in Europe and the Chevrolet Volt in the USA are extended electric vehicles. The was launched in the USA this year and the hits our roads in the UK in early

It’s an electric car, got batteries, you plug it in to charge it, but also got a 1.4 litre petrol under the bonnet.

As you can see from my of driving the full production it’s a great drive, in a howling summer rain Sadly any attempt at filming the was rather difficult, but even in weather it was a great ride.

It is, as many have predicted, the antidote for people who are interested in an alternative to a pure oil burner but are about range anxiety.

a word or three on that topic. The PR department of General the owners of Vauxhall, Opel and claim to have coined the ‘range anxiety.’

It’s a move and it has worked incredibly Have a look for news about electric vehicles and see if any of fail to use the term somewhere. save you the time, you won’t one.

Now, imagine a where the bicycle had never invented. Suddenly someone up with the idea of a machine two narrow wheels that you sit and pedal, but the person showing you the for the first time says lot of people are worried about anxiety.’ You would, without experience deep wobble

I’ve now driven electric for thousands of miles, when I got in one I had catastrophic range anxiety, I was I would, and I did. After miles driving in various cars I don’t get it any more. Now I another anxiety that’s all the time, ‘fossil anxiety.’

the feeling you get when you know going to be driving a car that to burn something to be able to This is, I believe, where the could come unstuck.

A lot of who wouldn’t dream of making the to a pure electric car are going to be far comfortable driving the Ampera. For alone I think General have done the right You can use this car as a purely electric even with the limited range it has.

It’s going to prove the that most journeys are under 30 miles and all electric are capable of doing that.

a few months driving the car, as people have found the Volt in the US, they will aware that they are around a big dormant petrol and a tank full of fuel.

that really matter if you it’s not going to ‘run or give you ‘range anxiety?’ not, but when you drive the with flat batteries it chew through rather petrol than you might for a modern car. I only about 20 miles using the engine and I saw a noticeable drop in the level gauge. The predictions and I have no way of verifying this at the that it gets around 30 to 35 to the gallon.

This of course has to be put in full In a year, say 10,000 miles, of those were electric then you are looking at petrol of nearer 170 mpg, with a Co2 of around 40 grams per kilometer. I like that.

Another this car has had from the pure lobby is that the petrol can also directly drive the which means it is effectively a just like the soon plug in Prius, which is the Vauxhall folk really want to agree to.

I think important to point out that this is true, it is under extreme circumstance and you really to make an effort to do it. There is a mode you can engage called which gives the car all the power it can to enable it to make a steep up a big hill, no, not a hill, a mountain.

It’s very clear from my limited experience you would only use this 1% of the time, okay, if you live in the Mountains or half way up the Alps more, but it’s simple to see 99% of driving would not need mode.

Being an annoying volt head the Ampera present something of a challenge. I into this volatile through hybrids such as the the Ampera is clearly the next for people who can’t quite the leap. It’s a good if 50% of our car fleet was Ampera-like, our yearly of fossil fuel would very dramatically.

I do truly hope it’s a and lots of people buy them. as I’ve said before and say again, when I do have money to buy a new car, it will question be 100% electric.
