I'm probably the oldest Ampera owner here. Well my Ampera was delivered on April 30th 2012, before official launch day, and I'm a handful of years away from retirement at most, so either me or my car gets the title I suspect. I am a fairly committed enthusiast of EVs and renewable energy. They are the 2 things that matter most to me in the world - after my children, of course. My son borrowed the Ampera for a couple of months when he was between cars as it were and he's become an evangelist too. It saved him £250 in those 8 weeks. I really loved my old car, like ran it to over 200k miles and 23 years old : Audi Coupe Quattro 2.2, but I like my Ampera more, even though I never thought I'd buy anything other than Audi as it was my third. The Voltec drive system is just so right for me. So might a Model S be also, but I could afford the Ampera and didn't want to wait any longer to go electric.
