Previously back in 2011 with GM Korea introducing this electric car that they have launched in Seoul. The real car a plug-in hybrid vehicle from General Motors was also marketed as an Opel / Vauxhall Ampera in Europe while in Australia and New Zealand it’s popularly known as the Holden Volt. It was reviewed by the presenters of the Fifth Gear show and the car was the Vauxhall Ampera.
The name “Ampera” name sounds more of prestigious than just being called as the “Volt” in other markets. Tiff Needle pressed the ignition and the engine powers up like a “futuristic car” from the 1980s Science Fiction movie in Robocop as described by Jonny Smith both TV presenters of the show.
There’s no need to confused about the car’s name as Opel, Vauxhall, and Holden are companies owned by General Motors is the parent of Chevrolet having the Volt known in the US and Australia/New Zealand while being called the Ampera in Europe.
It’s just like the Toyota 86 sharing the appearance but having a different brand name with the Subaru BRZ which is one and the same car.
If you haven’t seen this car appear in Transformers Revenge of the Fallen you’ll never miss it. The Chevrolet Volt is the Autobot known as Jolt that has electric tentacle whips as its primary weapon. Of course we’re not talking about the character but Jolt’s alternate mode which is the Chevrolet Volt.
This Deluxe Class action figure was known as Electrostatic Jolt that was released in 2010 as part of the “Transformers Revenge of the Fallen” expansion toy line “Hunt for the Decepticon” series which of the characters did not appear in the actual movie.
The Chevrolet Volt / Vauxhall Ampera are General Motors’ entry to the growing electric powered vehicles. The availability of an actual plug-in hybrid vehicle in the Philippines will be taking a long time to happen even though eJeepneys (Electric Jeepneys) have become a necessity in some parts of the Central Business District in Makati City.
The technology implementation of electric vehicles in the Philippines is happening in a slow turtle pace but without a doubt is becoming available but for luxury cars like the Chevrolet Volt it will definitely take time to arrive in the country.
