A sister vehicle to Chevrolet’s Volt, this is a an extremely efficient choice for anyone looking for a sophisticated PHEV using the most advanced technology. The Ampera boasts a 1.4-litre petrol engine offering incredible mpg figures (EU tests suggest 235.4 mpg - but bear in mind this includes a lot of help from the electric motor). Battery only range is 50 miles, which should be adequate for most day-to-day journeys without using any petrol. Total power (petrol and electric) is 148bhp, but because the immediate response is so good (there’s 273lb/ft of torque) the Ampera can whisk you to 62 mph in nine seconds. It also performs well at open road speeds. There are 300 litres of boot space, which is not bad for such an efficient and some might say futuristic-looking vehicle.
