Offered in three trim levels - Standard, Positiv and Electron all Amperas get a DAB radio, 7-inch touch-screen control monitor, cruise control and alloy wheels. Prices start at £29,995 which includes a £5,000 government plug-in car grant.

Every Ampera is backed by Vauxhall's Lifetime Warranty and 8 year 100,000 mile battery warranty. Ampera retailers will also offer a free collection and delivery service for all scheduled service, warranty and repair work.

All Vauxhall Ampera customers will also receive the contact details of their own personal Ampera agent, a service known as 'MyAmpera'.

Vauxhall's Chairman and Managing Director said, “We’re breaking completely fresh ground with the Ampera. The technology is obviously unique in a production car, but it’s the level of personalised customer support we’re offering that will be just as important to owners. MyAmpera reinforces this personalisation and will help us engage with our new owners throughout their time with the car.”
