The Vauxhall Ampera is now available from less than £30,000, thanks to the addition of a new entry-level version

Vauxhall has announced a new entry-level Earth version of its range-extending electric car, the Ampera.

Available from £29,995 including the Government's electric car grant, the Ampera Earth sits below Positiv (£32,250) and Electron (£33,995) versions in the line-up.

It still offers plenty of kit, though, with 17-inch alloy wheels, electric windows, climate control, DAB and Bluetooth fitted as standard.

Further up the range, Positiv trim adds a parking camera and heated leather seats, while Electron cars comes with a Bose sound system and a touch-screen sat-nav.

The Ampera is capable of returning fuel economy of up to 235mpg and CO2 emissions of 27g/km from its petrol/electric powertrain.
