Can you explain that?!The Ampera does drive on all electric except when being really pushed.
I have never had my Ampera run on anything but electric EVEN when being REALLY pushed. in Electric mode the car is FULLY electric full stop.
Only the [Hold] or [Charge Sustaining] modes use the engine, (cold weather settings can also instigate temporary hold mode.) at no point does "pushing" the car cause the engine to kick in..
I came to this thread to say it may be worth waiting a month or so to see if ELR comes to europe? discounting of Ampera suggests clearing stock for something new...but maybe you don't want another GM..
