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.”
The flagship Opel Insignia is also making its debut with newly developed, highly efficient petrol and diesel engines.
