The Opel Ampera concept which was unveiled at the 2009
Geneva Motor Show was the European version of GM's range-extended
electric car, the Volt.
Based on the same engineering and "Voltec" platform
as the Chevrolet Volt the Ampera is a hybrid electric
car which has a (60 Km) all-electric range. For trips
which are under this distance the Ampera uses the power
from its lithium-ion battery pack which can be recharged
from a standard 230V power socket. For longer journeys
the Ampera is equipped with a small displacement internal
combustion engine which acts as a generator to supply
power to the Ampera's battery pack.
