Opel Ampera-e Set To Be Revealed at Paris Motor Show
|   Sunday, September 18, 2016
Presented at the beginning of this year, the new Opel Ampera-e electric vehicle will be unveiled in a world premiere this autumn at the Paris Motor Show, although it was initially expected that Opel would unveil the model at the Geneva Motor Show.

It's a good period for the electric car. After Tesla Motors has announced the new P100D versions for the Model S and Model X versions, which provides them with exceptional performance and ranges of 600 and 500 kilometers, now experts at Opel come with interesting details about the upcoming Opel Ampera-e, a full-electric model which is prepared by the Russelsheim brand for the Paris Motor Show in late September.


Opel democratized the electric car concept with the Opel Ampera-e, Opel Ampera’s younger brother. The Opel Ampera-e promises one of the largest ranges in the segment, all at a very affordable price.

With small class sizes and allure of MPV, the Opel Ampera-e boasts five seats and a trunk comparable to models in the C segment. The new electric model from Opel is essentially the European counterpart of the Chevrolet Bolt, presented in January at the Detroit Auto Show.

According to preliminary information provided by the German brand, Opel Ampera-e will provide acceleration times similar to those sporty models from the OPC range. With an engine of 204 hp, which features a torque of 360 Nm, available immediately once the accelerator pedal is pressed, the new Opel Ampera-e goes from 0 to 50 km / h in just 3.2 seconds, which means that on the market there will be few cars that can run faster from the traffic lights.

Moreover, Opel demonstrates the starting capabilities of the Opel Ampera-e in a video clip. The new model leaves behind in the first 30 meters models like the Insignia OPC, Corsa OPC, or racing versions Opel Adam R2 and Opel Astra TCR. But the most interesting aspect of the Opel Ampera-e is that speeds of 80 to 120 km / h is achieved in just 4.5 seconds, which means that overtaking someone on the road will be carried out with ease.

Latest generation Li-ion batteries are mounted under the floor for ideal weight repartition. They weigh 440 kg, less than a quarter of the 1,600 kg total of the car. A fast charging cycle (80 percent) lasts 30 minutes and provides a range of about 144 kilometers.
Opel has big plans regarding its range expansion in revolutionary directions. Thus, no less than 29 models, completely new, will see the light of day in the next four years. And the Opel Ampera-e is one of them.

Opel did not yet provide information on total range and the price of Ampera-e, but a number of statements made by the brand’s officials in the German media show that the electric Opel will have on more than 320 kilometers between charges. The European brother of the Chevrolet Bolt will be available in Europe early next year.

“The Opel Ampera-e makes electromobility fully feasible for everyday use and ready for the future” declared Opel CEO, Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann. “The Ampera-e demonstrates impressively how well sustainability and driving pleasure can form a unity. And with its strong-as-an-ox electric motor, it delivers pure fun-to-drive.”
