The Ampera has a real-world battery range of between 25-50 miles, after which a small range-extending generator, powered by a 1.4-litre petrol engine, intervenes to provide up to an additional 300-plus mile range. At all times, the Ampera’s wheels are electrically driven, setting it apart from conventional hybrid vehicles.
The model is well equipped with voice activated Satellite Navigation featuring Street Level Mapping for 20 European Countries, Audio/Video DVD player, Hard Drive device with 30GB music file capacity and Bose ‘Energy Efficient Series’ Sound System.
As part of the 31-year olds role as an ambassador for Vauxhall, the Official England Team Sponsor, Stoney has been running a daily blog from the Women’s European Championships in Sweden on Vauxhall’s dedicated football website. She said “I’ve enjoyed bringing fans even closer to the team by writing my daily blog out in Sweden.”
She continued to add she is “thrilled to be driving such a state-of-art vehicle” and thinks “Vauxhall’s support of the women’s game has been outstanding over the last four years and it is fantastic news that they’ve extended their sponsorship until 2018.”
The Basildon-born defender has been an England regular since 2000 and is a member of the 100 club, having reached a century of caps against France at the Cyprus Cup last year. Upon succeeding Faye White as England captain last year, the Lincoln Ladies star described the honour as “the biggest privilege” she even went on to wear the armband of the newly-formed Team GB squad for the 2012 London Olympics.
“We’re very pleased to add Casey to our growing stable of footballers who are enjoying the cutting-edge technology of our revolutionary extended-range electric vehicle,” said Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “For a player who has achieved so much within the women’s game to be paired with our universally-acclaimed e-REV is fantastic.”
