That time to 100kmph is a little quicker than I would have guessed.

I had a bit of fun a couple of weekends back when Octopus were paying me to charge the car. Tried a bit of hypermiling along the speed-restricted M4 but didn't quite reach 50 miles, then after recharging did a bit of hooning around in sport mode, no doubt being an irritating twat to others at times. From one extreme to the other - all a bit of fun, with the bonus of being paid for every mile I ate!! :)

I like your videos on YouTube - you must be the honorary Ampera ambassador to Poland :)
Sadly this brilliant design is no longer in production - I think history will see this as a BIG mistake!

Thanks!
It was actually my problem, when I fell in love with this car and wanted to buy one I couldn't find any recent info about it. All on the internet were some outdated reviews of nearly new car but nobody was talking about used ones with big milage. For many people electric cars atm are not affordable and 8 years Ampera can be a perfect 1st electric car which can be very affordable.

Yeah I don't really know why GM decided to do Chevy Bolt instead of doing full electric Volt with the same or updated shape. I think Ampera is or used to be for sure one of the best looking EVs while most of them (not counting Tesla) looked very bad.
