Opel, love at first sight for electric cars

Published on 16.09.2021

The Automobile Club du Luxembourg has just returned from Rüsselsheim in Germany. At Opel's historic headquarters, the German manufacturer unveiled its brand new Opel Astra to the world.


It was also an opportunity for the Stellantis Group brand to reveal its strategy for the coming years. "By 2024, the entire Opel range will be electrified," said Opel's new CEO, Uwe Hochgeschurtz, as he presented the brand's new flagship.
 
With a new, bolder design, gasoline and diesel engines, as well as plug-in and hybrid power, and soon to be 100 percent electric in 2023, the new Astra also marks a 360-degree turn by the German brand toward more sustainable technologies.
 
Designed and produced in Rüsselsheim from November, the Astra is above all "Made in Germany" and claims to belong to the large family of German "Autobahn proof" cars. And the future Opel batteries will be manufactured not far from Opel's headquarters in Kaiserslautern.
 
The Opel Astra is expected to be for sale for around 22,000 euros in Luxembourg.
