What’s Going On With the Chevy Bolt and the Opel Ampera-e?

Several Transport Evolved viewers have reached out to me to pass on the news that Opel Norway has been dragging its feet on the official European launch of the Opel Ampera-e — Opel’s rebadged Chevrolet Bolt EV. Indeed, after obtaining more than 4,000 interested customers — who signed up to buy an Opel Ampera E way back in September last year — Opel has just announced it will deliver just a few hundred Ampera Es in Europe this year, writing to the other three thousand seven hundred reservation holders that they won’t be getting their Ampera E until some time in twenty eighteen.

Why is this happening? And does it have anything to do with Chevrolet’s low volume sales for the Bolt EV?
