Vauxhall Ampera Home Charging Guide

One of the earlier plug-in hybrid vehicles from Vauxhall is also one of the lesser-spotted. The Vauxhall Ampera may no longer be in production but it's still a viable choice for those looking for a less common vehicle with some unique styling. All electric range is about 35 miles in the real world, which is more than enough for most daily commutes.  

Charging the Vauxhall Ampera only takes four hours from empty to full through its Type 1 connection, which is easily achieved overnight.
