I spent this morning trying to think of a good way to explain the Vauxhall Ampera through some kind of analogy.
This involved a lot of thinking and research; including establishing whether there was any link between the Ampera and those leaked Christina Hendricks photos. For reference, unless it was a Fiat distraction ploy, I don’t think there is.
Instead I believe the best comparison I can see for the Ampera/Volt is to DAB digital radio. Yes it’s meant to be clearer, more efficient, easier to use but it’s still running on the same ideas we’ve had for decades. Plus DAB is still comparatively expensive compared to normal radio, and how many people do you know with a digital radio? I know one.
So there we go, the Ampera is BBC 6 Music for the road.
