Second-Hand Vauxhall Ampera

Used Vauxhall Ampera
The Vauxhall Ampera was released in Europe in 2011 and was voted European Car of the Year in 2012. Technically it is a hybrid vehicle, but Vauxhall have been keen to market it as more of a 'range extender.' Its front wheels are powered by an electric motor all of the time which is powered itself either by a petrol 1.4-litre engine or batteries. The idea is that the car runs on electric power until the batteries become low, at which point the petrol engine kicks in. The engine is also used on the motorway where a petrol engine is more efficient to use. The Ampera also features regenerative braking, which contributes to electricity generation.

What You Get
The Ampera's looks won't get the heart racing, but it’s far from unattractive. It boasts a fairly neutral appearance, though it is comfortable, roomy and the build quality is great. The Ampera is a typically solid Vauxhall offering. There is only room for two in the back and the boot is fairly mediocre. Apart from that, there is plenty of head, leg and elbow room. To increase its efficiency, the used Vauxhall Ampera will heat its seats sometimes rather than blow heated air into the cabin. Its power-saving stereo uses amplifiers that will rapidly switch off and on in order to save further power, reducing energy consumption by half.

How it Drives
The Ampera's electric motor generates a maximum of 149bhp and 370Nm of torque. It can be charged from a normal domestic socket using the supplied lead, so no special charging station is required. A used Vauxhall Ampera has a maximum speed of 100mph and will reach 60mph in around 9 seconds. The drive is exceptionally refined and comfortable. The steering, although not brimming with feedback, is accurate and consistent. If you didn't look at the onboard display you wouldn't be able to tell when the switch from electric to petrol generation takes place. Overall, the used Vauxhall Ampera is probably one of the best hybrid (or range-extender) cars on the European market.
