Carol Vorderman goes ultra low with the Vauxhall Ampera

Carol Vorderman, MBE, has become the latest ambassador to trial the Vauxhall Ampera extended-range electric vehicle, in support of the Go Ultra Low campaign.

Go Ultra Low, a ground-breaking partnership between the UK automotive industry and Government, is designed
to encourage more drivers to consider Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs). Carol was keen to get involved with the project, said, "I'm obsessed with engines, cars and aeroplanes, and with a degree in Engineering, I've always been fascinated by how things work."

As a busy working mum, Carol was initially wary that driving a ULEV would just add to her to do list. However, after a couple of months trialling the Vauxhall Ampera she commented, "Actually quite the opposite is true, it's easy. You come home, plug it in, you go away and come back in the morning and it's fully charged." She went on to say, "Journeys in and out of Bristol are shorter, so the range on the Vauxhall Ampera with the electric motor itself is perfect for me. It gets me through the day and I don't have to go to the petrol station which long-term, saves me a considerable amount of money."

"Carol is a great ambassador for the Vauxhall Ampera," added Denis Chick, Director of Communications, Vauxhall Motors. "She is a perfect example of the kind of person we are trying to reach with the Go Ultra Low campaign. There are many myths surrounding ULEV's which simply aren't true; as Carol's experience has proven, the Vauxhall Ampera performs for just about any lifestyle today."
