 The pure-electric hatchback will sell under General Motors’ Opel nameplate in Europe, where it will do battle against local rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric, Nissan Leaf and Renault Zoe.

 Interestingly, while it’s all but identical to North America’s Bolt, GM announced at the car’s Paris Motor Show introduction that the Ampera-e will receive an official mileage estimate of 500 kilometers.
