Fire hazard! Opel Ampera-e has to go back to the dealer and get a new battery

In the Netherlands, about 3300 copies of the Opel Ampera-e are registered and they all have to be returned to the dealer. The electric hatchbacks will be given a new battery as a precaution because there is a chance that the current battery will spontaneously catch fire.

Worldwide recall for Chevrolet Bolt / Opel Ampera-e

The Opel Ampera-e is based on the Chevrolet Bolt. And several of that model have already burned down in the United States. The culprit is the battery, which is made by the Korean manufacturer LG. Worldwide, approximately 100,000 Chevrolets and Opels are recalled. The owner - who is automatically notified - does not have to pay for the new battery.

Do not charge your Opel Ampera-e overnight and do not store it indoors

Until the recall is carried out, Opel will offer some advice. Owners of an Ampera-e are advised not to charge their car overnight and not to park it in a garage or next to a facade. In addition, it is wise not to drive the Opel completely empty (with 110 kilometers left) and not to fully charge it (up to 90 percent).

Opel Ampera-e has no longer been delivered in the Netherlands since 2020

The Opel Ampera-e was sold in the Netherlands from 2017 to 2020. It has a 204 hp electric motor and a 60 kWh battery, with which it has a range of 380 kilometers on paper. The Ampera-e comes from the time when General Motors still held sway at Opel. Since then, the German brand has been taken over by the French group Groupe PSA (Citroën, Peugeot).
