Some say the Vauxhall Ampera extended-range plug-in can do amazing things, but we're pretty sure the sister vehicle to the Chevrolet Volt can't float on water. That's what the U.S. model is for.

Across the pond, General Motors' UK Vauxhall is making a different kind of association between machine and liquids, promoting a London film series that, in one installment, will include a movie projected onto a jet of water, Hybrid Cars says.

Visual artist Max Hattler will project images from an animated work commissioned by Vauxhall onto a 1,500-square-foot "screen" formed by a jet spewing out water from the UK's Regent's Canal. The film creator says the work is a "psychedelic geometric ballet," so now you know all you need to about that. The film will show from September 6th to 16th and is part of the so-called Vauxhall Ampera Season at London's Kings Cross Filling Station, which will show films for about six months.

In March, the Volt/Ampera won the 2012 European Car of the Year Award.

      Worried their greenwashed hybrid with thousands of points of failure will catch fire? Kill switch the battery and douse with water.

      Jesus Christ the Vauxhall can walk on water, whilst a Volt would sink, no wonder Chevy only sell 6 volts a month in the UK. UK GM Sales January to June Vauxhall Ampera 4 seater £29,000 203 sales Chevy Volt 5 seater £25,000 31 sales Must be Vauxhall can walk on water & the griffin badge on the grille that does it for us Brits, very useful car for a trip on the Isle of Wight ferry.
