Hope you not confusing MY with Registration Plate year. Confirm the MY with the VIN. There seem to be a lot of MY12 cars on 15 plates about for example.
The Model Years run mid September to August I think hence the confusion. The MY14's (solid colour seats, different satnav) appear to have been test cars bought in in 2013 and registered and used by Vauxhall and hence were sold later on a 13 plate, there is one for sale currently at Newcastle Vauxhall - see the Guide to buying a second hand Ampera for a link and a VIN decoder. Only this model has a supposedly updateable satnav.

Impressed to see a dark grey Amp at the Dartmeet car park on Dartmoor at about 17:30 today (Monday Aug 10th). Must have been a few spoiler scrapes I would imagine!
