Opel Ampera popular in ye old continent, likely to meet sales goals unlike Volt

To say that Chevy's Volt hasn't had the smoothest inaugural year would be an understatement, but over on the other side of the pond, things couldn't be going more swimmingly for its badge-engineered cousin, the Opel Ampera. Sales are reportedly brisk with over 7,000 Europeans preordering the electrified hatchback, prompting the company to push its 2012 sales target from 8,000 to 10,000 units -- matching the figure Chevy had initially set, and then missed for its variant here in the US of A.

And for some little brain food, did you know that before Saturn closed down in the US, it actually carried some Opel cars. The Saturn Sky was actually the Opel GT.
