GM to convert Volts to Amps in Europe
Geneva Motor Show beans spilled early
'Leccy Tech Unable to contain itself until 5 March, General Motors has announced that the European incarnation of its Chevrolet Volt five-door will be called the... drum roll, please... Ampera.
Volt Ampera: shades of the...
GM also released a design sketch of the Ampera which shows pretty much what you'd expect: a Chevy Volt with a rather more aggressive snout lifted more of less intact from the 2007 Opel Flextreme concept car.

Whether or not an announcement will be made at Geneva about the Ampera being built at GM's Ellesmere Port, Cheshire factory only time will tell. ®
If GM lasts long enough to work out what the public really wants, they'll cross a Volt with an Ampera and get a ... Watt?
Getting my coat.
About the styling.
I dunno. With that deliberately obfuscated pic it's pretty much impossible to tell WTF it's going to look like, save that the astronomical camber angle on the rear wheel would seem to indicate that it's not a "real" pic anyway and whoever drew it needs a short lesson in perspective.
As for the concept below, I suppose that if one were in the market for an electrically powered, four seat suppository, it would do.
What I want to know is . . .
why does every GM car, at least in the UK, have to be named to end in an 'a'?
