We already knew that the Opel Ampera-e would get at least 500 km of NEDC range, now Opel confirms that the official figure is 520 km.
Opel does warn us that the WLTP cycle – where it gets 380 km range -, is much more realistic than NEDC. The WLTP range figure is almost identical to the 238 miles (383 km) that the Chevrolet Bolt EV gets with EPA test cycle.
Here we have Opel’s YouTube playlist dedicated to the Ampera-e.
With first deliveries expected only for June in Norway and other European countries much later, GM is underestimating not only Nissan with the second generation Leaf, but also Renault Zoe that always gets big discounts in summertime, which it’s already happening earlier in Portugal.
What do you think? Will GM/Opel be able to challenge the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance’s leadership in the electric car market?
