Opel to launch electrified version of the Grandland X and Corsa in 2019

News

In 2019, the German carmaker Opel will not only celebrate 120 years of automobile manufacturing, but also accelerate the electrification of its model range.

The company will open its order books for two electrified models in the first half of next year, the battery electric version of the new Corsa and the Grandland X SUV as plug-in hybrid.

“Opel is going electric!” says Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller. “We made this announcement at the presentation of our PACE! strategic plan and now we are delivering.”

The new Corsa in particular will give Opel additional drive next year. A bestseller, the first generation of which made its premiere in 1982, will features an electric version for the first time. Lohscheller promises a competitive price: “The new Corsa will make electro-mobility affordable for many customers, it will be a real electric car for the people.”

The Grandland X plug-in hybrid, which Opel will produce at the German Eisenach plant as of next year, is for customers who want more space and the feeling of an SUV. The hybrid propulsion system will develop the equivalent of up to 300 hp and comes along with an e-All Wheel Drive technology.

The all-new Vivaro midsize van will also be available as a battery electric vehicle in 2020; and the next-generation of the successful Mokka sub-compact SUV, which goes into production in 2020, will also include a fully electrified version.
