LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM – April 25, 2013: Vauxhall is to cover the majority of running costs for Ampera customers with a new ownership package for its ground-breaking extended-range electric vehicle (E-REV).

Available on Positiv and Electron trims, private buyers will be entitled to three years or 60,000 miles free servicing and a 2,000 fuel contribution, enough to cover both electric and petrol costs for three years for an average Ampera driver.

Other benefits include a Type-2 charging cable which will enable customers to charge their Ampera at the vast majority of public charging points and a 335 (VAT inclusive) allowance equivalent to the 25 per cent funding gap on domestic home charging installations announced after last month’s Budget.

All of these exceptional benefits are in addition to Vauxhall’s industry-first Lifetime Warranty, and Ampera’s eight year/100,000 mile battery warranty.

“Thanks to this fantastic ownership package, the only running costs Ampera customers will need to find in the first three years of ownership is insurance,” said Ian Allen, Vauxhall’s Environmental Strategy and Ampera Manager. “We are delighted to cover the majority of running costs for Ampera customers, which will undoubtedly help smooth the transition for our customers into owning an electric vehicle.”

Arriving in UK showrooms last year, Ampera has a real-world battery range of between 25-50 miles, after which a small range-extending generator 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.

Ampera pricing starts at 29,995 on-the-road (including 5,000 Government grant) for the Earth model. The car is available through a network of 24 specialist Vauxhall dealers.

The revolutionary vehicle is also offered on the 3-Day Test Drive programme through which customers can test a Vauxhall for three days, without paying a penny more than the fuel used.
