2011 Opel Ampera will have a price tag of €42,900

by Alex

At the price of EUR42,900 which is about $58,000 the European unit of General Motors Company would be selling the Opel/Vauxhall Ampera which in reality is a re-badged Chevrolet Volt. The price is steep and this has been clarified by the marketing head of Opel sales and marketing Alain Visser as attributed to the higher features that one would get to see on the car. Some of these premium features that one would get on the car are the Bose speakers and touch-screen monitors. Deliveries are slated to begin by October 2010 and orders are being accepted by Opel.

The company’s plant at Warren Michigan where the Volt is also being built is the site that has been identified for this car also. The other reason is that the Ampera shares the same technology as the Volt. It is the styling modifications and the bold looking grille that would differentiate the car from the Volt. The car would not be available to buyers at cost lower than stated as the company is giving out the battery pack which is an expensive item.

“The Ampera defines a new class of e-mobility. No other electric vehicle provides the freedom of individual transportation as the Opel Ampera,” said Alain Visser, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Opel. “We have compromised on nothing. The Ampera is a beautiful car that is as fun to drive as it is packed with premium content.”
