Opel is presenting its new range of electrified models, from the brand’s first plug-in hybrid to purely battery-electric rally cars, at the the Brussels Motor Show in Belgium.

The Grandland X is the brand’s first plug-in hybrid. The SUV will be launched this year – with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

The purely battery-electric Corsa-e will also be rolling out to customers in 2020. It offers a purely electric range of 337 kilometers.

The new Corsa-e Rally also kicks off this year. Opel says the first purely battery-electric rally car from a car manufacturer is undergoing endurance tests as scheduled and will be ready for the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup from summer 2020.

Opel‘s CEO Michael Lohscheller, says: “Opel meets the challenge of strict CO2 targets with the most efficient range of models in its history. Opel is going electric, with the Grandland X plug-in hybrid, the Corsa-e and soon with the Vivaro-e. We also offer highly economical internal combustion engines in the new Insignia, Astra and Corsa. We will comply with the CO2 guidelines.”
