SCOTLAND STREETS AHEAD WITH SWITCHED ON THINKING

28-Oct-2013

SCOTLAND'S HUGE PLUG FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES

The Greener Scotland and Energy Saving Trust websites – produced independently by the Scottish Government – include unbiased, independent advice on all aspects of electric vehicle ownership, from detailing grants available to reduce costs from both private and company ownership perspectives, to the location of free charging points.

As the table below clearly proves - the Ampera goes further in every way. Compared to other eco-efficient premium marques, the potential savings delivered by Ampera's revolutionary technology are real and substantial; beating its nearest rivals hands down. Both drivers and businesses will reduce their costs significantly, with the new lower price bringing down Benefit-in-Kind tax rates for drivers and Whole Life Costs for businesses.

 

The enormous savings of this premium electric car are hard to ignore:

There is no arguing with such impressive and conclusive figures, but it’s also important to remember that - as BusinessCar Green Model of the Year 2013 - Ampera is not just about lowering costs; it’s about raising expectations in its sector with a high-performance, premium-feel driving experience.


The mould-breaking Ampera is revolutionary with ultra-advanced technology that delivers Combined/weighted 235.4mpg and only 27g/km of CO2 emissions. It has a real-world battery range of between 25-50 miles, after which a small range-extending generator, powered by a 1.4-litre petrol engine, intervenes to provide up to an additional 300-plus mile range. At all times, the Ampera’s wheels are electrically driven, setting it apart from conventional hybrid vehicles.


The Ampera has already got some very well-informed fans, and owners. Here’s what they have to say –


Auto Express
“The Vauxhall Ampera is the firm’s most important new car in a generation, and could lay the blueprint for how all future cars are powered.”


Autocar
“It is a family car re-engineered for a 21st century that demands giant leaps in fuel efficiency. Nothing short of revolutionary, in other words.”


The Sunday Mirror – Quentin Willson
“This is a truly game-changing motor that could help free you from the tyranny of fossil fuel – no wonder it’s been named European Car of the Year. I was so bowled over that I took a deep breath and ordered one.”


Business Car
“The Vauxhall Ampera offers the most realistic alternative-fuel solution yet to business drivers.”

 

We believe that it’s fair to say that the automotive media fell in love with the Ampera from the start – and, with prices significantly reduced, we think business drivers and Fleet Decision Makers will too.

Just take another look at the substantial savings if you need any further convincing.
