- Three world premieres: Opel Grandland X, Opel Insignia GSi and Country Tourer
- Efficient propulsion: Grandland X to be Opel’s first plug-in hybrid
- Opel stand opened: Press conference with Opel boss Michael Lohscheller and Groupe PSA CEO Carlos Tavares
World premiere: Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller announced the arrival of the first Opel plug-in hybrid at the IAA – Grandland X SUV
Strong showing: World premiere for sporty Insignia GSi with Group PSA CEO Carlos Taveres and Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller.
“Our new Opel Grandland X as plug-in hybrid is the next big example of the opportunities that await us as a member of the PSA group,” said Lohscheller at the press conference. “We will follow this path closely.”
Elsewhere, the new top-of-the-line Opel Insignia models also took center stage. The dynamic GSi continues Opel’s long tradition of sporty limousines with that certain something while the all-wheel drive Country Tourer is the right choice for adventurers.
“We are continuing the biggest model offensive in Opel’s history with these three world premieres. We have made decisive additions to our portfolio this year with the electric range champion, the Ampera-e, the Opel Crossland X crossover, the Vivaro Life recreational vehicle and the Opel Grandland X SUV,” explained Lohscheller in Frankfurt. “We at Opel are proud to be part of the PSA Groupe now. Together we will create a European champion. We will do so by continuing to make technology ‘made in Germany’ available to as many customers as possible, thus staying true to our brand credo the future is everyone’s.”
