Vauxhall Ampera

Vauxhall Ampera Car Insurance

Vauxhall offers two Ampera models in the UK: the Positiv and the Electron.

Not a conventional pure electric car, the Ampera is powered by a 85bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine and a 148bhp electric motor (the electric motor has an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty). This combination means that it is able to return fuel economy of up to 235mpg and CO2 emissions of only 27g/km.

Every Ampera comes with two seven-inch displays, 17 inch alloy wheels, a reversing camera and a DAB radio fitted as standard. An electric parking brake means there is space for cup-holders and an armrest in the front of the vehicle which has four individual seats. A nice innovation from Vauxhall is a pedestrian alert buzzer, which can warn passers-by of the car’s presence when travelling below 30mph in full electric mode.

Vauxhall claims that its pure electric motor has a range of up to 50 miles, at which point the petrol engine increases the total range to more than 300 miles. A full charge will take four hours.
