Opel, now a subsidiary of Stalantis, unveiled a new strategy for electrifying its products at a conference called Electric Car Day. Based on this strategy, Opel pursues three main goals: to become an all-electric brand in Europe by 2028, to supply electric vehicles in the Chinese market, and to produce a street version of the Manta GSe ElektroMOD concept by the middle of this decade. .
Opel’s new strategy was unveiled by the company’s CEO, Mr. Michael Lohscheller. He said in this regard during the unveiling:
“From 2028, Opel will introduce only electric vehicles in the key European market. “This demonstrates our commitment to electric transport.”
But the bad news for fans of the Manta GSe ElektroMOD concept coupe is that the production version of this car will probably be very different. Preliminary images of the car released at the unveiling show that the production version will be very different from the concept model and will reach customers with a more modern look instead of a retro look.
The car is expected to be developed based on the new platform for Stalantis electric models. In this case, the production version of the Manta GSe ElektroMOD will probably be able to cover a distance of 500 to 800 km on a single charge.
According to information presented at the Electric Car Day conference, the Opel Manta E will enter the market by the middle of this decade. Unfortunately, the exact time of this is not known at this time.
As mentioned earlier, Opel will be operating in the Chinese market with all-electric models. You may know that this country has the largest market for electric vehicles thanks to government incentives. According to annual statistics, Opel sells about 5,000 cars in China.
One of the slides on display at the recent Atlantis conference shows that Opel will electrify all of its products by 2024. Apart from this German company, Stlantis intends to electrify its other subsidiary brands as well.
