Opel Monza concept, 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show
It was revealed today at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show and heralds a new generation of Opels focused on efficiency and connectivity. Efficiency is showcased by the concept’s lightweight design, optimal use of interior space, and advanced powertrain technology. Connectivity, meanwhile, is demonstrated by LED projection technology, used for the instrument and infotainment displays, as well as wireless Internet and cloud data storage capability.
Powering the concept is a drivetrain we may just see in the next-generation Chevrolet Volt, or an Opel Ampera if you’re reading this in Europe. The setup is an evolution of the Volt’s current Voltec drivetrain and uses a turbocharged 1.0-liter engine as its range extender instead of the current 1.4-liter engine.
