Opel Ampera


The Vauxhall Ampera will go on sale in 2012, pitched between the Vauxhall Astra and Insignia. Probably, at first, it will be costlier than both  but what remarkable economy it’s capable of. How does 176 mpg grab you, with CO2 emissions of a mere 40 g/km? The best Vauxhall Corsa, by way of comparison, emits 109 g/km. Plus,  the Ampera is a full-sized model, with a 300-mile range. It can do 40 miles on electric power alone, meaning most drivers may never see the engine start. More than that, there’s a gasoline-powered “range extender” to take you farther.
