The Opel Ampera-e is still several months from the beginning of low-volume deliveries in Norway, which will be followed by Germany and Netherlands, then France and Switzerland, but here is some shots to pass the time.

The first all-electric Opel (and by the way first long-range non-Tesla BEV) is expected to generate a lot of interest in Europe.

The Opel’s North American twin, the Chevrolet Bolt EV, finds itself now in its first full month of deliveries, and we are hopeful of a ‘big number’ after a full month on the market.

Here we gathered more than 10 of the best shots that could be used as wallpapers for all those who are patiently waiting on a Opel Ampera-e of their own.

Quick specs on Opel Ampera-e:

  • 60 kWh battery (LG Chem)
  • More than 380 km (236 miles) under WLTP (more than 500 km / 300 miles NEDC)
  • 7.2 kW charging in 9 hours or CCS DC fast (about 150 km/ 93 miles in half hour)
  • 0-100 km/h (≈62 mph) in 7.3 seconds
  • top speed is 150 km/h (93 mph)
  • 150 kW/204hp electric motor (FWD)

    The Ampera-e approaching the bridge photo is troubling…is that a launch ramp into the water?

    1. twonius says:

      That’s the “Atlantic Ocean Road” in Norway. You see it in a lot of advertisements. The road itself is better on camera than in person but the trip there is worth it.

    2. ClarksonCote says:

      Perhaps they’re gearing up for a bunch of stunts to perform with the Ampera-e similar to the old Spark commercials? 🙂

      1. CDAVIS says:

        @CarksonCote – Yup…that must be it…perhaps with a marketing tag-line like “go big or go home”.

        1. ClarksonCote says:

          Heheh, yep! 😉

    3. bogdan says:

      The EVs are so fast, they can jump and hover over the water!

  2. Kris says:

    The fun part is that Ampera-e is even slightly cheaper than 2017 eGolf.(Norway) Let me remind thats 60kW battery against 35kW. I wonder who would ever buy eGolf over Ampera-e? Leaf is 25-30% cheaper.

    1. Mikael says:

      How does it compare to the 2018 e-Golf?

  3. Benz says:

    The Chevrolet Bolt EV will take away marketshare from the Nissan Leaf and all the other EV models in 2017. Until the Tesla Model 3 will enter the arena. Then it will be a different story. Because there will not be any EV model that could compete with the Tesla Model 3.

    1. Trollnonymous says:

      Model ≡ will most likely be in December. So the LG Bolt will have pretty much all of 2017.

      Unless Nissan pulls a rabbit out of a hat and ship the 200mi LEAF in mid 2017.

      Not holding my breath though.

      1. twonius says:

        Maybe they’ll solve just the fast charging problem by leaving them parked all over the place and let you swap “pony express” style.

        1. E-Express Car Sharing Network?
          Pick a route! Any route over 250 miles long! They have the cars to Pony up! You own the trip but they own the cars!

      2. ClarksonCote says:

        “LG Bolt…”

        Hilarious you still stick to this term.

        Apple’s iPhone (and many other company’s products) is/are made 100% by another company, do you call it the Foxconn iPhone?

        Every automaker sources supplies from dozens and hundreds of suppliers for any given vehicle. GM consolidates a bit on one to save the BUYER dollars and get EVs more affordable, and some choose to call it an “LG Bolt” … smh

    2. E-Ryc says:

      Because there will not be any Tesla Model 3 that could compete if you don’y want sedan…

      1. Tesla Model Y will bring the long range hatch to a new level, and wil be closer following the Model 3, than the Model X followed the Model S!

        I expect to see the first Tesla Model 3 Reveal by December 2017 to March 2018, about 9-12 months after final Model 3 reveal! Once the Gigafactory is producing enough cells for energy and Model 3 sales and production demand, additional capacity will begin for new Model S and Model X batteries. Once that demand can be exceeded, they should be over 50% of the Gigafactory build out, and be ready to show the Model Y!

        I expect that the Gigafactory will be over 50% built by December 2017 to March 2018,giving them the confidence to show the Model Y, knowing it will have enough battery supply when they start production, to be built in the numbers Elon expects demand to be at: 500,000 to 1 Million a year!

        Elon may have already settled on a location for GF2 in Europe, by the time he unveils the Model Y! New GF2 and subs, will be planned to input all raw materials, and complete vehicles come out the end of the line. It appears China may be in line for GF3.

      Not everybody wants a sedan, now that we have plenty of choice….
      Europeans want mostly hatchback and SW.

    I owned an opel made GM car once, the Cadillac Catera. It had 42 visits to service in the 1st 4 yrs.

    1. Neromanceres says:

      The Catera was a Saab rebadge with different engines and that car was a disaster.

    2. unlucky says:

      I bet it zigged though.

  5. Vertigo says:

    Not that it matters, as they have no plans to sell the Bolt in the glorious kingdom of Britain, but I’d actually be put off buying that car based on looks. Which is saying something, given that I’m a fan of both the Leaf and i3.

    1. Adam says:

      I just can,t understand what is wrong with the look of the Bolt? I personally don’t mind the i3, but the bolt is completely normal looking city car, sure you may not LOVE it, but I can’t see how it’s offensive, especially in Europe.

      1. JoeP says:

        Same here. I like the looks.

    2. bogdan says:

      ‘glorious kingdom of Britain’
      That’s a piece of ancient history.

  6. Adam says:

    This should be a big hit in Norway, You would want a big price difference to consider the Leaf or e-Golf.

  7. VS says:

    It is a pity this yellow color will not be available on the production line. According to an Opel representative when the car was displayed in Oslo, it’s too complex and laborious. Seeing it in real life was stunning.

  8. mx says:

    That yellow is un-photogenic.
