Vauxhall Ampera price cut by £3,500

The Vauxhall Ampera (pictured) drops in price by £3500

Although we still feel the range-extender is the right way for car makers to go to get the car buying public to accept EVs, the range-extender Vauxhall Ampera has not exactly been a runaway success. Despite Vauxhall offering potential Ampera buyers the option of trying it for 30 days and handing it back if they don’t like it, the Ampera has failed miserably to sell in any sort of volume.

So, with new competition on the way from the range-extender BMW i3, Vauxhall are taking drastic action to try and tempt buyers in to the Ampera and are slashing prices by £3,500.

The trouble is, that still means the Amerpa Positive will cost £28,750 and the Ampera Electron £30,495 and that’s after you – the taxpayer – has thrown in a £5,000 bribe to get you to buy.

We can’t see this price cut making any real impact on sales because the Ampera is still just too expensive to be a viable alternative for any kind of everyday motoring for everyday car buyers.
