The winner is... Opel Ampera E
OUR PICK: Not available in the UK PRICE: N/A
THIS year’s small car category was mostly made up of traditional hatchbacks and superminis, but Opel’s all-electric Ampera E took the top spot. It’s not on sale in the UK, even as a Vauxhall, yet it’s a convincing prospect. With an all-electric range of over 300 miles – more than the Renault ZOE, Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 – it’s one of the most versatile EVS on sale. It still had a tough job on its hands to beat the excellent new Ford Fiesta, VW Polo and Honda Civic in this category, though.
