I looked at the Ampera but Vauxhall couldn't offer me a deal that suited me and the front end design put me off. Then I looked at the Chevy Volt, same interior and running gear, preferred the look and had the optional polished wheels, oh yes and cheaper. The Edinburgh Chevy dealer sorted me a deal that I was satisfied with and the car is brilliant. My best mileage on a charge so far is 42 miles but as the terrain up here is far from flat I am very pleased with it. The only problem with Chevy is the lack of dealers who sell and maintain them.
