Opel company changes the owner — from the American company General Motors it goes to the French group PSA Peugeot Citroen.
However, to change their plans and that’s not going to. To this conclusion you can come come from the head of the brand Karl-Thomas Neumann, who spoke about the prospects of “their possessions” of the German edition Auto Motor und Sport.
So, one of the priority projects for the Neumann is a great SUV Opel. This crossover should be the second flagship model in the line of the brand along with the new Opel Insignia. He is expected to go into production by the end of the decade and will be offered with engines which are fitted in the Insignia (now includes the latest range of 165-horsepower gasoline engine with supercharging a 1.5, a 2.0-liter 250-horsepower engine and a turbo diesel of 1.6 and 2.0 liters).
In addition, Opel plans to develop electric mobility direction. So, in the future the company will launch several electric vehicles. They will follow electrochemcial Opel Ampera-e, which comes to market this spring.
As for the near future, Opel continues to bring the light of 7 new models planned for the current year. Already debuted the above Insignia (Grand Sport liftback and station wagon Sports Tourer) and Ampera-e, as well as crossover in the compact class X Crossland . Soon an off-road station wagon Insignia Country Tourer, coupe Grandland X and van Vivaro new generation.
The first time Opel will use the technical base for GM, but will gradually go to PSA resources. The latter, in turn, intends to strengthen the position of its new brand in Europe, where relatives of her Peugeot and Citroen demonstrates a very dynamic sales and bring it outside the Old world (but this is clearly not the celestial).
