Opel will cease to produce such cars by 2024.
Opel will be an electric brand by 2024. Such intentions appeared immediately after the sales of the brand of the French company PSA Group.
With the new models the automaker will be less dependent on the former owner GM.
While Opel only sells one electric model Ampera E. in fact, it is the Chevy Bolt EV to be sold under a different brand. But the problem with Opel is not that the model is only one, and that it simply enough for everyone. The company was unable to capitalize on the big demand for the Ampera E in Europe, because GM has restricted the export Bolt EV. In the first, increased prices, and then the car completely disappeared.
To continue not to lose profit, the company promised in 2020 to expand the model range of electric cars up to 4 cars. Full transition stamps on electricity is scheduled for 2024. New electric cars will be developed using native technologies of the PSA Group, said new Opel CEO Michael Aseller.
Having full access to technology PSA, Opel will become the European leader in minimising emissions of CO2. By 2024, all European passenger cars will be electrified. We will offer eco-friendly batteries and electric motors. By 2020, Opel will have four electric models on the market, including fully electric Corsa. Electrification is of paramount importance to us, — said Roseller.
