I = V/R*

I wonder why General Motor's US version of their electric + range extended car is called the Volt, while GM Europe's version is called the Ampera?

Is it because US citizens don't know what an Ampere is? But I don't really think a high proportion of us Europeans do either, so why not 'Volt' across the globe?
