VAUXHALL Ampera review

NGC verdict 11.07.2013

Plug-in hybrid or extended range electric vehicle, call it what you will, though to my cynical mind the Ampera seems nearer a Prius hybrid than a Leaf electric car, once you've tried all the Ampera's drive modes, you'll just turn on some music and notice how relaxing the Ampera is.

If you have a suitable lifestyle you might even forget what petrol stations look like providing you remember to plug it in whenever there's a chance. So far, more than 600 Amperas have been sold in the UK and nearly 7,000 across Europe.
