OPEL AND ELECTROMOBILITY

The car brand is revolutionising the segment of electrical cars with its new model: the Opel Ampera-e.

opel02This new electric model will have its world premiere at the following edition of “Mondial de l’Automobile” next week in Paris, a little nervous vehicle that reached 50 km/h in 3,2 seconds. And which does not spoil everything for an electrical motor car, with an autonomy of 400 kilometers. This represents 30% more ride compared to its closest competitor in its class. Monitored and measured through the European standard NEDC (new european driving cycle), by making the electric model in the biggest autonomy ever. These are the figures in condition of optimal use, and regarding with the intangibles such the weight loads, weather or road conditions, the car driving style, the vehicle may however cover more than 300 kilometers without any problems. A spirited and agile car link to sustainable mobility. But also connected, the Ampera-e is equipped to become also a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Electrical cars have apparently experienced their youthful errors, and therefore Opel will thus launch on the market soon a vehicle adapted to everiday uses. Or when electromobility can finally address to all thanks to technological innovations, according to Karl-Thomas Neumann, CEO of the brand: “Opel democratized the electric vehicle Ampera-e.” The battery has indeed been developed in collaboration with LG Chem and its disposal in the substructure , the car can offer then a spacious cabin for up to five passengers. By temperament, agility and lightness, the Ampera-e offers acceleration worthy of a sports car. Its top speed is electronically limited to 150km/h to spare autonomy, but it still develops a maximum torque of 360 Nm. This is equivalent to 150kW/204ch. In “Drive”mode if the driver releases the accelerator, the car can automatically recover energy and so recharge its batteries while driving. Also by adapting to a specific mode of conduct, it is possible to win 5% of additional autonomy.

A car to be discovered on the various markets in 2017, while not forgetting that Opel Bicycle celebrates this year its 130 anniversary. And product since 2012 of the ecological and electric bikes (Rad-e). A constantly evolving manufacturer, who makes technologies meet itself with innovations for a brighter future.
