After taking advantage of the ﾃつ｣5000 Plug-In Car Grant, customers will pay just ﾃつ｣28,995 for the Ampera. And it's not just the price that impresses; with the efficiency of up to 50 miles range on battery power, free TFL congestion charge, no Vehicle Excise Duty payments and 5% company car taxation, Ampera's overall running costs will be extremely low.
The Vauxhall Ampera 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. Its 50 mile battery electric drive range exceeds the UK's average commuting distance but when a longer journey is required, Ampera's range-extender engine/generator produces electricity on board. The generator engages seamlessly once the battery has reached a minimum level of charge. The 50-mile battery electric range is thus extended by 310 miles permitting the driver to travel up to 360 miles without the need for recharging or refuelling.
A full charge for Ampera's battery can be achieved in less than four hours via a domestic 240v electricity socket at an average cost of around ﾃつ｣1, depending on tariff. Commuting within the 50 mile range will ensure very low running costs on battery electric drive only.
