2009 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Vauxhall Ampera

Vauxhall have proved that an electric car doesn’t have to look like an overweight armadillo with the unveiling of the sleek, aggressive-looking Ampera.

It has five doors, four seats, plenty of luggage space and its aerodynamic styling and on-board generator mean it will do 300 miles between power boosts.

Launched to a blaze of publicity at the Geneva Motor Show, the Ampera joins the zapped-up Vauxhall range and will reach British showrooms in 2012  when they have installed a steering wheel on the correct side.

Smart, practical, whistle-clean – and it simply plugs into a household wall socket. A stylish farewell to petrol station visits.

MM verdict: So GM can do sensible after all.
