Volt Based Ampera to Be Built In UK in 2016


http://insideevs.com/volt-based-ampera- ... -probably/

<snip>
Now it seems the deal hinges on a government subsidy package, not dissimilar to one recently given to Nissan to build the LEAF in Sunderland. A plant that is already partially operational, building lithium batteries for use in Nissan/Renault EVs.

Nick Reilly, who was GM president for Europe before retiring this past March, was looking for £30m in government funding to produce the Vauxhell/Opel Ampera in Ellesmere Port, as well as a guarantee that the UK’s £5000 rebate scheme will stay in place long term, bringing the Ampera’s cost down to £28995.

Rebooting an old thread...

That never happened but perhaps they could get funding to make the Ampera-E on condition they did RHD too of course...
