2017 Opel Ampera-e Specs

This is Opel’s, and in a couple of years’ time, Vauxhall’s, new electric family car. In mainland Europe, beginning with electric-friendly Norway and followed next by Belgium, Holland and Germany, it replaces the original Ampera, of which so much was expected but which sold in small numbers.

The new Opel Ampera-e is THE electric car or ‘Das Elektroauto’, with a revolutionary officially certified NEDC range of 520 kilometers (measured in accordance with the New European Driving Cycle). The 4.17 meter long Opel Ampera-e also offers plenty of space for up to five passengers plus trunk space of 381 liters (1,274 liters when the seats are folded down), which is more than some compact class cars. “We are bringing an electric car fully suitable for everyday use to market in the Ampera-e. It is not eco-luxury, not a gadget and not just a second car. Opel is showing that electro-mobility is also achievable for a much broader audience thanks to the most innovative technology,” said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.

Like the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, the 2017 Opel Ampera-e is no stranger to accolades, recognition and awards. Most recently, the Bolt EV’s German twin received the Plus X 2017 Best Product award.

The Ampera-e was recognized in the “High Quality”, “Design”, “Functionality” and “Ecology” categories. It scored unanimously well, leading to the presentation of the “Best Product” award.

The electric vehicle market segment is getting hotter by the day with each automaker trying to outshine the others by offering affordable models with long ranges. Recently at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Las Vegas Nevada last month, General Motors unveiled the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, their new PHEV for the American market.

2017 Opel Ampera-e Review

2017 Opel Ampera-e Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2017 Opel Ampera-e. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

A quick look at the Ampera-e shows it is a replica of the Chevrolet Bolt.  The only differences between the two is the Ampera-e’s redesigned front bumper, its new grille which features two thin chrome strips and Opel emblems on the front and rear fascias.

Opel’s electric car is the perfect match for our digital age: essential operations are performed via the individually configurable, tablet-like 10.2-inch color monitor. All important information on the vehicle or the outside conditions can be displayed here. The IntelliLink-e infotainment system can integrate compatible smartphones via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These can be charged even when not connected through a cable thanks to wireless charging. Features such as voice control, USB and Bluetooth interfaces are obviously also available. Audiophile Ampera-e owners can also order the Bose sound system with subwoofer – a special treat in the super-silent electric car.

IntelliLink-e finally fuses to create a complete service offering when combined with the personal service and connectivity assistant Opel OnStar. OnStar offers a powerful 4G/LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, ensuring outstanding connectivity for all Ampera-e occupants and their mobile devices. Furthermore, Opel OnStar users are only a press of a button away from a personal advisor who can help book a hotel room (booking service), find the closest available charging station or provide directions to a car park.

Compared to the Ampera, the Ampera-e cabin is more stylish and features upgraded technologies. The cabin is also almost identical to that of the Chevrolet Bolt. The vehicle will accommodate five passengers and still leave a cargo space comparable to cars in the compact segment.  This is courtesy to its battery which is mounted under the floor.

It also features a 10.2-inch MyLink color touch-screen with Smartphone integration and OnStar service assistant. The vehicle also features a wide-angle rear-facing camera and a Surround Vision system similar to one’s used in large SUVs. The system uses different cameras to provide a bird’s eye view of the car.

2017 Opel Ampera-e Release

2017 Opel Ampera-e Engine

Unlike the Opel Ampera which was powered with a PHEV power-train, the new Ampera-e features an all-electric drive-train. The model features the same setup as the Chevrolet Bolt. The electric motor produces 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The motor is backed by a 60 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which is mounted underneath its floor to maximize cabin space.

The automaker remained mum about its range but we expect a 200 miles range on a full charge just like the Chevrolet. The Ampera-e will run from 0-60 mph in under 7 seconds and will have a top speed of 91 mph.

60 kWh lithium-ion battery consisting of 288 cells arranged in eight modules of 30 and two modules of 24 cells. The entire battery pack is an integral part of the underbody. This saves space while simultaneously guaranteeing safety. A 30-minute charge at a 50 kW DC public fast-charger will add a further 150 kilometers of range. Opel grant a warranty of up to eight years or 160,000 kilometers for the battery system. The revolutionary electric car has a range of 520 kilometers measured based on the NEDC test cycle with a full battery. And the Opel Ampera-e also impresses when tested approximated to the speed profile defined in the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) driving cycle (shortened test procedure): Based on this development test, the engineers estimate a combined WLTP range of 380 kilometers. Naturally, the range in everyday use will vary and depends on personal driving behavior and on external factors.
