12.7.2012 Entry level Ampera Earth available now
Vauxhall has announced the introduction of their final addition to the Ampera line-up – the Ampera Earth. The new Earth addition is available now, and will be the cheapest in the range at £29,995, including the Plug in Car Grant.
Ampera Earth is the entry level model in Vauxhall's E-REV line up, also including Positiv and Electron trims. Since its May launch, 230 Ampera's have been sold placing it as the second best selling electric vehicle in the UK so far this year.
With standard features such as DAB, 7-inch touch screen display and Bluetooth, the Earth is generously equipped, and retains the groundbreaking powertrain and exterior design of higher spec variants. The Earth is available to order in four exterior colours and is offered with a black cloth trim.
The Ampera range is currently offered through a 24-strong dealer network. Offering a personalised level of customer care, each retailer has four specialists, two in sales and two in aftersales. Through Vauxhall's partnership with British Gas, customers also benefit from a free home assessment to ensure that their charging capability is maximised.
Strong regional coverage will enable 95% of Ampera owners to reach a specialist retailer within a one-hour drive. In addition retailers will also provide a free collection and delivery service for scheduled servicing, warranty and repair work.
Every Ampera owner also has access to 'My Ampera Services', a programme which provides owners with a direct number and email address to a named Ampera agent at Vauxhall HQ. Completing the package, and like all Vauxhall cars, the Ampera is backed by a unique Lifetime/100,000 mile new vehicle warranty, while, the battery system has an impressive eight year/100,000 mile warranty, transferable to subsequent owners.
The Earth trim Ampera now costs the same as the Chevrolet badged version, the Volt. Both cars have the same powertrain and appearance, but vary in terms of fittings and optional extras. Both cars can be charged at an increasing number of UK charging points.
