Opel Ampera a rebadged Bolt for 2016
OPEL will launch rebadged Chevrolet Bolt EV next year, as the German brand continues the biggest, most farreaching model offensive in its history with 29 new models between 2016 and 2020.
The new model, which will be called “Ampera- e”, was announced today by GM CEO Mary Barra at the CAR Symposium in Bochum, Germany.
“GM and Opel have always been convinced that electric cars will play a defining role in future mobility. The gamechanging technology of the Ampera- e is a significant step toward realizing that vision. Our new battery electric car is also another boost for Opel’s reputation for making innovative engineering widely accessible.”
Trends like urbanisation and protecting the environ- ment also call for new kinds of mobility and alternative propulsion systems.
“Electric vehicles have the potential to make a significant contribution to climate protection and emissions reduction”, said Opel group CEO Dr. Karl- Thomas Neumann.
“The new Opel Ampera- e will open the road to electric mobility by breaking down the barriers of high price and short driving range.”
