Opel has announced Ampera as the name of its revolutionary extended range electric car. The five-door, four-seat Opel Ampera will be revealed, in Switzerland, at the Geneva Motor Show (5th - 15th March, 2009).

“With the Ampera, Opel will be the first European automobile manufacturer to provide customers several hundred kilometres of non-stop electric driving,” said Alain Visser, GM Europe Chief Marketing Officer.

GM’s ground-breaking electric propulsion technology, called Voltec, operates differently from other advanced propulsion systems. For short trips up to 60 kms, the Ampera will run only on lithium-ion battery power charged via a standard 230v outlet. For longer distances, the car will continue to drive on electricity that is generated by a small internal combustion engine.

The Ampera will be well-suited to the daily driving schedule of most European customers. For example, approximately 80 per cent of German drivers travel less than 50 km daily.

Additional information on GM's new Opel Ampera will be released at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
