The production version of the new Opel Ampera has finally been unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. This plug-in hybrid's specs remain as reported prior to the show's opening, but for a reminder, the vehicle's total output is at 150-horsepower and 273 lb-ft. The Ampera hybrid also has a top speed of 99 miles and will have a range of between 25 to 50 miles when running in pure electric mode.This range is extended to 310 mile when its 1.4-liter gas engine is employed.

In order to save on fuel, the Ampera is equipped with four drive modes: Normal, Sport, Mountain, and City. Opel's pricing for the plug-in hybrid has been standardized for all European markets, leaving it with the starting price of €42,900 ($59,450). The Ampera will go on sale throughout Europe this June.
