2012 Vauxhall Ampera

“I really hate the satellite navigation in the Ampera," he said. “I paid for the top specification system, but I should have just got a stand-alone satellite system.”

So far, he admits he hasn’t filled up with gasoline, with most of his trips being within the range of the Ampera's 16 kilowatt-hour battery pack. 

“I’m getting 250 mpg” he joked. “But now I don’t have to worry about plugging in any more.”
