Opel, a German carmaker based in Russelsheim and owned by American automotive company GM Motors, has generally been unheard of since leaving the Philippine market a decade ago. Well, here it is again, presenting this very Italian-looking concept car called, er, Monza. The company is formally unveiling this at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.
"The Monza Concept represents the Opel car of tomorrow," said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann. "On the one hand, it embodies everything that already characterizes Opel--German precision combined with innovative technologies wrapped in captivating design. In addition, it addresses the themes that will be the development focus of the next generation of Opel cars: maximum connectivity and optimum efficiency."
He continued: "Connectivity is demonstrated by a trailblazing LED projection technology for instrument and infotainment displays. Efficiency comes in many ways, with lightweight design, optimal use of interior space, and advanced powertrain technology."
If this is the design direction that Opel is taking in the near future, how do you feel about its chances of success?
