Print - "Range anxiety", that's the term to describe the common fear all owners of electrical cars share. Every time they take their car out for a spin, they are afraid it doesn't have enough power left in the batteries to make it to the destination. The Vauxhall Ampera should end this problem. This electrical car from Vauxhall has both an electric motor and a petrol engine, giving it a total range of about 500 km (300 miles). Does the Vauxhall Ampera put an end to the angst of driving an electric car?
