FRSC bans Ampera vehicles on Nigerian roads

The Federal Road Safety Corps has alerted Nigerians on the withdrawal of about 10,000 Ampera Motor vehicles by its manufacturer, Frankfurt-Opel.

In a statement issued on Sunday, FRSC indicated that the vehicles were withdrawn because of their battery-related problems.

The agency also said the Ampera-e vehicles built between 27 June 2016, and 5 September 2019 posed a safety risk to drivers.

Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi said “Nigerians to desist from further sales or usage of such vehicles on Nigerian roads”.
