One of the most prestigious awards of the German car industry, the “Golden Steering Wheel”, was presented in Berlin. And the Opel Ampera-e took the prize in the small and compact car segment. The revolutionary electric car convinced the jury consisting of readers, experts and celebrities and left strong competition in its wake. The Ampera-e thus continues the long tradition of Opel “Golden Steering Wheel” winners. Opel Managing Director Engineering Christian Müller attended the ceremony hosted by Bild am Sonntag and Auto Bild and accepted the award.
The Opel Ampera-e’s win at the much-coveted 2017 Golden Steering Wheel awards is the continuation of the Rüsselsheim-based carmaker’s successful tradition in the competition, which started with the Opel Senator A in 1978, two years after the award was introduced, and includes 17 titles over five decades.
