2011_opel_amperaAs expected, GM officially unwrapped its new Opel Ampera, the European rebadge of its Voltec-powered Chevy Volt. It’s looking pretty “fit,” as they say overseas, and will go into production late 2011.

Internals are just what we’re used to with the Volt, with a 16kWh lithium-ion battery that takes the car 60km (about 37 miles) and a gas powered generator for recharging the battery once depleted, that can extend the range to more than 500km (about 311 miles).
