Chevrolet Volt’s twin, the Vauxhall Ampera, has added Auto Express magazine’s Green Award 2012 to its growing collection of top honors.

The UK’s best-selling weekly car magazine made the announcement at its prestigious New Car Awards held last night in London.

The Ampera, which has only just been launched in the UK, adds this latest accolade to an impressive haul of over 40 awards including the 2012 European Car of the Year, What Car? magazine’s Green Car of the Year and Top Gear magazine’s Green Car of the Year.

Sales results are confirming the popularity of the Ampera. The Volt twin is Europe’s best-selling electric passenger vehicle with a continent-wide market share of over 20 percent.

“The Ampera is a superb car that debuts technology that will play a huge part in our motoring future,” said Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief. “As always, the simple ideas are the best, but putting them into a car and making it work so well, then getting it on sale, is altogether much harder.”

“We are delighted that the Ampera has received recognition from Auto Express magazine,” said Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “The Ampera is truly a pioneering vehicle not just for Vauxhall but for the automotive industry as a whole. Its revolutionary E-REV technology makes it the first vehicle on the market providing uncompromised electric driving."
