The bad news is that reservation page states a 2018 delivery date.

In Germany, the Ampera-e starts from €39,330 (≈$44,900), but there is also a fully-equipped First Edition for €44,060 (≈$50,300).

Norway was the first market for the EV, as Opel has already begun Ampera-e deliveries from May.

Preliminary registrations data suggest that more than 300 will be registered in June (some 550 total YTD).
