She's Electric


She's ElectricThe 2012 European Car of the Year, the Vauxhall Ampera, has been released in the UK as of May 1, 2012, further strengthening the increasingly-competitive electric car market.

Marketed as the "first real-world solution to electric car ownership", the vehicle intends to bring efficient driving to the mindset of the public with such unique features as the top speed being limited to 100mph, counterbalanced by the quite simply, astonishing, accomplishment of squeezing 235.4 miles per gallon.

The Ampera differs from hybrid vehicles in that it runs off electricity at all times. The petrol motor engine boosts the 16kWh lithium-ion battery back instead of powering the wheels, meaning that the five-door iteration pumps out only 27g of CO2 per KM.

The basic model is available now for £32,250, but a £30,000 model will be due later this year.
