Electric power takes you a long way, as you'll discover on any drive in the new Vauxhall Ampera. It's got impressive capability and a host of forward-thinking features, and is a multiple award-winner.
The new focus of your driving experience begins with the model's streamlined design. Every part of the 'face' – including the headlights, grille and mirrors – has been shaped specifically to direct air over the car towards the back. A rear spoiler made exclusively for the vehicle is perfectly placed to reduce drag, as are the disc inserts for each alloy wheel. As a result, the car's overall style feels borrowed from the future, and is an indication of how other next-generation Vauxhalls could look in time.
The interior layout has a premium look and a high quality finish, lending the Ampera particular suitability to eco-conscious business users. Heated front seats, infotainment systems and optional full leather upholstery are luxurious additions. You'll find a central touch-sensitive display and a driver information centre on a seven-inch screen within the dashboard, giving you clear and constantly updated readouts. Without losing focus on the road, you can monitor the car's energy flow and performance in real time.
A 1.4-litre petrol-powered generator is the non-traditional energy source within the car, fitted alongside a 16kWh lithium-ion battery. The model has an extended range, which gives you up to 310 miles in between recharges. A charging cable is included so that you can top up on the move or at home – and power is even restored during braking via a clever regenerative system. CO2 emissions are staggeringly low at only 27g/km, and the lack of a conventional gearbox keeps the ride smooth and whisper-quiet.
One constant with the Ampera is a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, something you'll have come to expect from any current-generation Vauxhall. ESP-plus with traction control and Straight Line Stability keep you on track, with braking and cornering assistances on hand. Every feature has been carefully placed to afford you maximum protection should a worst-case scenario occur, such as the airbag placed at the driver's knee, for example. The car is also built with an energy-absorbing steering column and front and rear crumple zones, absorbing most of the damage from any impact before it can harm the cabin occupants.
