Vauxhall Ampera – 2012 Green Award

You may remember our recent post about the Vauxhall Ampera’s miles per galon claim, the Vauxhall Ampera has now earned The Auto Express Magazine Green Award for 2012.

The Ampera has also earned The 2012 European Car of the Year, What Car? magazine’s Green Car of the Year and Top Gear magazine’s Green Car of the Year.

Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief commented:

“The Ampera is a superb car that debuts technology that will play a huge part in our motoring future. As always, the simple ideas are the best, but putting them into a car and making it work so well, then getting it on sale is altogether much harder.”

Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Chairman and MD, added:

“We are delighted that the Ampera has received recognition from Auto Express magazine. The Ampera is truly a pioneering vehicle not just for Vauxhall but for the automotive industry as a whole. Its revolutionary E-REV technology makes it the first vehicle on the market providing uncompromised electric driving.”
