Opel Ampera to Debut at 2009 Geneva Motor Show

First Chevrolet, then Cadillac, and now Opel. GM's Voltec technology is on the front burner, with its first application-the 2011 Chevrolet Volt-scheduled to debut in 2010. In order to show the technology's flexibility, GM surprised us with the well-received Cadillac Converj concept at the 2009 North American International Auto Show. Today, GM confirmed that Opel will get a car equipped with Voltec as well: the Opel Ampera.

In a press release issued today, GM announced that it will reveal the Opel Ampera at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show in March. From what little we can tell of the teaser image, the Ampera looks to be a Volt with a redesigned front fascia.

According to the release, the Ampera is a five-door four-seat electric car that can travel 60km on a single charge, the same as the Volt. More information should become available closer to or during the Geneva Motor Show.

Even though they've tried to hide much of the details in shadow, it's clearly a Volt with an Opel/Vauxhall face, not that there's anything wrong with that.
