Opel At 2011 IAA


Opel/Vauxhall will be unveiling a new and super amazing concept car at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

They haven’t let out any further details yet, except that this superb car is a sporty and sexy machine which will wow the press and crowd. We do not know yet if it’s a hatchback, a drop-top, or maybe even a crossover. But the anticipation feels sweet, especially as the rest of Opel’s lineup for the show is not all that brilliant!

The new Astra GTC is alright, but apart form that, we get the new Zafira Tourer, the new Combo, which is an ugly van based on the Fiat Doblo, and a production version of the Ampera electric car. They will also be showing seven ecoFlex models based on the production range.

Opel/Vauxhall press release:

Astra GTC and Zafira Tourer take centre stage for the first time

The new Astra GTC’s rakish design has already won it praise from press and public alike. And with its bespoke high-performance front suspension (HiPerStrut), the GTC has the dynamic performance to match its stunning looks. At launch, a range of petrol and diesel engines with outputs between 120PS and 180PS will be available to order before the car hits UK showrooms later this year.

Defining new levels of interior quality and space in the MPV sector, the new Zafira Tourer has a completely re-designed Flex7 seating system, innovative technologies and fine driving dynamics to complement its range of new engines. The Zafira Tourer will reach UK showrooms early in 2012.

Electric Ampera heads towards European market launch

Vauxhall’s Ampera is the first electric vehicle from a European manufacturer to do away with the range anxiety which so often blights electric cars. It fits perfectly into this year’s Frankfurt Show slogan: ‘Future comes as standard’. A 16 kWh lithium-ion battery pack feeds the 150PS electric drive unit. Depending on driving technique, terrain and temperature, it delivers between 25-50 miles of electric operation with zero emissions – ample for a vast majority of UK commutes. But thanks to a clever range-extender, the Ampera can travel for more than 300 miles on electric power without needing to stop at a filling station or to re-charge.

Seven new ecoFLEX models from Agila to Insignia

Vauxhall’s ecoFLEX range is already renowned for combining exceptional fuel consumption with hardly any sacrifice in performance. But now the bar has been raised even higher with the launch of seven new derivatives across four ranges: the Agila 1.0 petrol (109g/km), Meriva 1.3 CDTi (109g/km), Astra 1.7 CDTi (99g/km), Insignia 1.4 Turbo petrol (134g/km) and Insignia 2.0 CDTi (115g/km) – as well as ecoFLEX versions of the Astra GTC and Zafira Tourer.
