Nice to see the Ampera getting on to 5th Gear on their 2nd hand hybrid EV show, needless to say VBH got her facts wrong talking about gearbox solienoids when she meant gearbox bearing. Quoted 12K as price guide failed to mention voltec warranty or any other features beyond zero range anxiety, still obsesses with zero to 60 times as well at least they are taking EV's more seriously than top gear.

Not a very good review,why is everything about 0-60?
Masses of torque,faster off the lights,same again ,we didn’t buy the car to beat everyone.
It’s electric,sit back,gentle throttle and enjoy the relaxing,quiet silky smooth power delivery.
Cruise in to town,pull into the carpark and see who you can creep up on ?.
Mostly my mates or the boss.

The beauty of an EV is you can beat the boy racers off the lights and then go kerb crawling without having to change to the Bentley.

They always have to find something to knock EV's about. Would have been nice if she talked about the Ampy build quality as well. Goes without saying she prefers the BMW, as FG like TG seem to have an obsession with the German marques.

Does the Ampera emit a pedestrian warning noise like the Leaf, and can it be turned off if it does?

No pedestrian warning noise (2010 design) but has a pedestrian warning horn ;) just a friendly beep. Much better than a funny noise IMO.
