2011 Opel Ampera: First image and details before Geneva

After releasing a teaser earlier this year, GM has dropped the first official image and details of the Opel Ampera prior to its 2009 Geneva Motor Show debut tomorrow.

Based on the 2011 Chevrolet Volt, the Opel Ampera is capable of traveling more 60 kilometers (37 miles) on battery power alone. After the lithium ion battery pack is depleted a 4-cylinder on-board engine-generator gives the Ampera more than 500 kilometers (311 miles).

Will bring you more on this Volt sibling tomorrow. In the mean time, let us know which one you think is better looking – the Volt or the Ampera?
