Opel Corsa EV, Grandland X PHEV Coming Next Year, New Mokka EV Due In 2020

Next year, Opel will celebrate 120 years of car manufacturing and will also launch new electrified products.

Among them, customers will find the new generation Opel/Vauxhall Corsa EV. The zero-emission supermini will go on sale in the first half of 2019 and promises to “make electro-mobility affordable for many customers”, said Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller.

The Grandland X PHEV will launch in 2019 as well, with e-AWD. The company’s flagship SUV will benefit from a total output of up to 300 PS (296 hp / 221 kW), which is identical to the Peugeot 3008 GT Hybrid4 that was unveiled two months ago.

The French crossover combines a 1.6-liter petrol engine with two electric motors and a 13.2 kWh battery. One of the motors is attached to the rear wheels and drives them when necessary, or when the 4WD mode is selected. The other is located on the front axle and is integrated with the eight-speed auto gearbox. The 3008 GT Hybrid4 can travel for up to 50 km (31 miles) on electric power alone.

The Mokka X is in for a significant makeover, too. The second generation of the subcompact crossover will enter production in 2020 and, unlike the outgoing Mokka X, will benefit from a battery-electric version.

The electrification plan approved by PSA, Opel’s and Vauxhall’s parent company, will also include an electric version of the Vivaro. The midsize van will become available with a zero-emission powertrain in 2020.

As mentioned before, Opel will blow 120 candles off its birthday cake next year. Thus, they will celebrate the event by adding a ‘120 Years’ special edition to their model range, with design updates, new features and more standard equipment “at especially attractive prices”.
