Car & Driver: Meet the Opel Ampera-e, the Chevy Bolt EV’s European Cousin

Recommended Posts

Opel Ampera-e

-

What’s that Chevrolet Bolt doing in front of the Eiffel Tower, you ask? Mais non! It’s the new Opel Ampera-e, a nearly identical version of the all-electric Bolt that’s set to make its European debut at next month’s Paris auto show.

-

If the Ampera name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the nameplate that Opel (and Vauxhall, in the U.K.) chose for its version of the previous-gen Chevrolet Volt (the current Volt has yet to make its way to the Continent). And so, just like in the U.S. where the Bolt and Volt names make for a messy distinction between the two cars, the Europeans will have their own sort of badge confusion to deal with thanks to the Ampera-e.

--

Regardless of naming mishaps, the Ampera-e should have a significant impact on the European EV market with its impressive electric drivetrain shared with the U.S. version of the car. Opel isn’t yet providing full specifications, but the 60-kWh battery pack will remain, along with the claimed driving range of more than 200 miles on a full charge. Its five-seat hatchback body isn’t changed, either, other than the requisite “Opel” and “Ampera-e” badges.
