With the Ampera Opel is setting new standards for electric vehicles in everyday use. Its specially designed lithium-ion battery provides energy for the 111 kW electromotor. Depending on driving style, road profile and outside temperature, the fully charged battery will take the car distances between 40 and 80 kilometers on battery power alone - which is still unusual in the e-mobility segment. A classical gasoline combustion engine helps extend the range to up to 500 kilometers. But since the batteries recharge in around four hours, the Ampera can master most inner-city stretches in ultra-quiet electric mode.
