2011 Vauxhall Ampera is its badged version of Chevrolet Volt. It is a pioneering new car that delivers low-emissions and it is the only real-world electric car solution for a family. It is extremely efficient, unique in the market and has a number of operating modes, maximising performance in all circumstances.

Features:
The Voltec hybrid system that powers the Ampera uses electricity to drive the wheels full-time. A 16 kW/h lithium ion battery provides power, and the gasoline engine serves only as an on-board generator. This arrangement allows the Ampera to cruise completely gasoline-free for up to 40 miles at all speeds. With the engine on hand to charge the batteries, an extended range of over 300 miles is expected. It can be charged using any standard 240-volt electric outlet.

The Vauxhall Ampera is an extended-range electric vehicle that is able to cover up to 40 miles by only running on electricity. The Vauxhall Ampera is also fitted with an engine generator that charges the battery, and this way the car is able to cover more that 300 miles. Inside, the cabin is similar to that of the Honda Insight and Toyota Prius, with its wraparound dash. It has leather upholstery, soft and comfortable seats, and the top-notch switches from the Insignia are all high quality. With maximum torque from idle, it scorches away from a standstill, although unlike its rivals, the drive motor is eerily silent. Top speed is limited to 100mph, with 0-62mph in nine seconds, and the unique driveline provides 40 miles of battery propulsion from a full charge.

Ampera is  suited for  the daily driving schedule of most customers. For example, research by GM in Europe showed that approximately 80 percent of drivers travel less than 30 miles daily. Based on current fuel prices, Vauxhall predicts that the Ampera will cost roughly one-fifth of the current cost per mile of an equivalent petrol engined car . so the car is  suited for the daily driving.
