Opel to launch 20 new models by 2012
The list of new models includes the recently revealed Insignia sedan (pictured), the Meriva MPV (early 2009), next-generation Astra (Q3 2009), Zafira (2010) and Corsa (2011), and all variations of these.
According to Automotive News Europe, the Insignia will spawn a new coupe, a wagon and a crossover. The Astra, meanwhile, will appear as a coupe as well, while the Tigra will be discontinued from next year onwards. The car will be replaced later by a new coupe-convertible based on the compact Corsa. Furthermore, we’ll see the Antara SUV and a new crossover also based on the Corsa.
As for the hybrid and electric vehicles, Opel will develop its own vehicle based on GM’s new E-Flex powertrain from the upcoming Chevrolet Volt.
