Opel Ampera to be Unveiled in March

GM had already announced that the Chevy Volt's plug-in hybrid drivetrain (now called 'Voltec') would be used in other model, and we've already seen the Cadillac Converj concept in Detroit earlier this month. The latest GM announcement is for a European cousin to the Volt named 'Ampera' and sold under the Opel brand.So far we only have the teaser photo above, which shows a very similar body shape to the Volt (photos here). We wouldn't be surprised if it was basically the same car with a few stylistic difference and minor changes to follow European regulations.

If that's not the perfect logo for an electric car, I don't know what is.

"The automaker has just announced that it will reveal what appears to be the European version of the Chevy Volt at the Geneva Auto Show on March 3rd."
