Of course there is no doubt that the 2011 Ampera looks much better than the Volt but other than the looks the Ampera is basically the same as the Volt.
Refresher: Power comes from 16kWh electric-motor that runs on lithium-ion batteries – a system known as the Voltec. It can travel 37 miles on electric power alone. After the battery runs out of charge a 4-cylinder engine will kick in providing a range of more than 311 miles. The Ampera can be plugged into any household 230v outlet for charging.
