With the unveiling of the next-generation Chevrolet Volt (Opel / Vauxhall Ampera) soon, General Motors plans to bombard the auto world with a significant extended-range offensive.

The spectacular demand that is in place for the Volt/Ampera has caused the company to slow down on adding more variants.

With the next-generation launches, the company will be able to add more production facilities that will enable them to introduce a sub-brand of the Volt/Ampera. This move will introduce three models to the market – an Astra-sized hatchback, a bigger version of the current Volt/Ampera and a crossover.

Officials at GM say that the new cars coming out as next generation variants will definitely be cheaper and simultaneously offer a longer electric range. Pricing is also likely to become even more competitive with governments in many countries offering incentives for electric vehicles.
