Coca-Cola Purchases Fleet Of Opel Ampera-E Electric Cars

AUG 28 2018 BY MARK KANE 12

Coca-Cola finds that the Opel Ampera-E is a perfect fit for its operations in Norway

The Opel Ampera-E (the European clone of the Chevrolet Bolt EV) is not a common sight, as not many were sold after Opel was acquired by PSA from General Motors.

Through the first seven months of 2018, the Ampera-E is not even in top #20 of models for sales, despite the fact that it could be one of the most popular BEVs due to its long-range.

Anyways, recently Coca-Cola bumped the sales stats a little bit by introducing 100 Opel Ampera-E to its fleet in Norway.

Additionally, the company installed 176 charging points at its Norwegian headquarters. A large chunk of Coca-Cola employees in Norway already drive electric cars, as does a significant piece of the nation’s entire population, so more chargers are surely a welcome addition.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that fleet sales will be a sizeable percentage of electric car sales both abroad and back here in the U.S. The driving force behind this is, of course, cost savings in the long run.

If coke could buy 100 at a crack, you’d think this car is more available than we’ve been led to believe.

You can actually buy them? Wow!

So, they (GM) are still making Opels?

Now they just need some Tesla Semis. And to stop bottling water and soda in plastic bottles.

We have recycling of bottles here so it’s okay.

I wonder if they paid the full price for them? I got mine here before they raised the prices, so even after owning it for 15 months it’s still worth more than I paid 🙂 Thanks GM!
