The Vauxhall Ampera: What Lies Beneath

At first glimpse, the new Vauxhall Ampera looks like just another family car. Looks cannot be more deceptive here. It is the first electric powered car in the market which can traverse for over 50 miles without needing its batteries to be recharged. A petrol engine mounted along with the main electric motor gives this car this phenomenal capability. A single 3 hour battery charge propels the car to over 40 miles of mileage. When the battery runs low, the petrol engine turns over a generator to give another 300 miles of cruising range.

It's quick, too, with a maximum speed of around 100 mph, the Ampera can touch 60 mph from 0 in just 8 seconds.
