The Holden Volt was introduced in Australia during 2012.
The left-hand-drive Opel Ampera was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with information which showed that the star rating can be applied to the Holden Volt.
Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and driver and passenger knee airbags are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
