Opel’s soft launch of the Ampera-e is underway, with Norway kicking things off in Europe. However, Opel’s home country will have to wait awhile longer.
Inside EVs reports the Ampera-e won’t arrive in Germany until 2018, according to the car’s reservation page. However, Opel will be happy to place interested parties on a reservation list for just €1,000.
The Ampera-e will start at €39,330 ($44,900) when it goes on sale in Germany, but the brand will also offer a “First Edition” of Opel Ampera-e. The edition is fully equipped with all available features for €44,060 ($50,300).
Norway was selected as the introductory market for the Opel Ampera-e due to its booming electric vehicle infrastructure. The country is well on its way to putting 100,000 EVs on its roads, a large figure for a relatively small country. In comparison, GM has deployed roughly 243,000 electrified vehicles as of 2016 in the United States.
