Opel intends to become a leader in electric car market

German carmaker Opel intends to become a leader in conversion of the cars from hydrocarbon fuel to electric power. The first and the only for the present step in this direction will be serial hybrid of the brand, which will come on sale in November. 

“We would like Opel to become a leader in electric car segment”, - sales and marketing director of the company Alain Visser said. Meanwhile, the first electric cars using Opel Ampera electric motive power will come on sale only next month.

According to AutoVesti.Ru, the Ampera is the restyled Chevrolet Volt. The both models are almost identical but will be sold with different brands and in the different markets. The hybrid Opel is equipped with small petrol engine, which can increase milage of the electric motor. The model is recharged from the usual electric socket.

According to A. Visser, the Ampera will improve the brand’s image and the company will get an impulse three years earlier than its main competitors. Opel has already got 6,000 orders for its hybrid and intends to sell about 10,000 Amperas next year. At present the company is developing two new electric cars: serial version of the RAK-e concept car, which was introduced during the motor show in Frankfurt in September, and the electric minicar.

“By the end of the year we will decide if we are going to productionize the RAK-e. If the decision is positive, the serial version will go on sale by 2013”,- A. Visser added. Electric car can cost about 10,000 -12,000 euro and can be produced by the company’s subsidiary KTM. The same company took part in the electric engine development. A. Visser did not say anything particular about the electric minicar. According to some sources, the Opel brand-new can be the electric version of the Chevrolet Spark, which is planned to be put on GM assembly line in 2013.
