Auto Express magazine’s award ceremony was held in London recently. It included all the green cars with magnificent performances, it was difficult to decide which car would win at one time but Vauxhall’s revolutionary model Vauxhall Ampera outmatched all yet again.
“Manufacturers are working harder than ever to make their cars more eco-friendly, so it’s testament to Vauxhall’s brilliant Ampera that wins our Green Award for the second year on the trot…it is still the best.” – Steve Fowler (Vauxhall official)
Vauxhall‘s director showed his gratitude over winning the award and said that they are upbeat as Ampera has embraced the award for the second consecutive year. It is a trendsetter in the true sense of the word not only for the company but also for the entire automotive industry.
Ampera is superbly eco-friendly and efficient. Driving it is a joy and no one could think of discomfort while riding on it. CO2 emission of Ampera remains 27g /km that is an outstanding emission rate .Its battery ranges from 25/50 miles; however a small generator is attached to it to boost its range to 310 miles. A type-2 cable charger is also available with it to charge it at any public place. Test drive proof that not a drop of petrol is needed when you are in the EV mode.
Come to its performance now, Critics agree that there are no flaws in it. It gets you instant torque the moment you begin to drive it. One thing that they pinpointed was its handling that is a bit (excessively) squishy but no worries, as it works well at high speeds. It will run smooth and calmly; there is no concept of any wind or road noise in it. It is truly a revolutionary car as its wheels are all-electric unlike other hybrid wheels that is available in three trim levels.
Though Ampera is not as attractive as other rivals are but it promises a serene cabin, solid quality equipment and roomy seats plus cargo, what else do we need?
