Opel plans eight new or refreshed models by 2020

From early 2019 to the end of 2020, Opel will launch eight all-new or refreshed models, investing primarily in high-volume and profitable segments, writes Trish Whelan. By then, the German brand will be offering one of the newest portfolios of all volume manufacturers.

With its PACE! plan, Opel has committed to bringing at least one all-new model onto the market every year. Next year alone, Opel will launch the new generation of the bestselling Corsa and the successor to the Vivaro as LCV and passenger car variants. Additional variants and equipment versions of the Combo will also be on sale. 

The successor to the Mokka X will follow in 2020 and will play a pivotal role for the expansion of the company’s SUV sales from 25 to 40 per cent by 2021.

Order books for both the all-electric new five-seater Corsa and the Grandland X PHEV will be open by late 2019. By the end of 2020, Opel will have four electrified models on offer and by 2024, there will be an electrified version of every Opel model.

The Opel ADAM and KARL will not be replaced after the end of their life cycles but will remain on sale until the end of 2019.
