Opel Ampera-e gets official NEDC range and enters production

Range Champion Opel Ampera-e

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?

  1. Can’t get them in the UK.

    1. And any other right-hand drive country 🙁

      1. Not being produced in right-hand drive form so wait for Tesla M3

  2. Forget them. This is only a compliance car…

    1. Show us the proof please!

      1. Proof.. what more proof do you want when they said that volume selling and production to all the USA was for the beginning of this year and now it is only to September?

        What more proof is it needed, when the sells in Norway are only to the middle of the year?

      2. Tesla Model 3 is selling nowhere. Tesla Model 3 will not sell ANYTHING in Norway for the full year.

    1. No it will just become the Peugeot Ampera-e 🙂

  3. The mousewheel scrolling of your site is still pretty annoying…it’s too sensitive.

    1. Hi John.

      I disabled the “smooth scrolling” option, please check if it’s better now. If not I’ll enable it again.

      Thanks for the feedback.
