2024 Will See Opel Go Completely Electric

A big statement from Opel this afternoon as the brand has taken another major step towards becoming fully electric by announcing that the successor to the Opel Crossland B-SUV will be offered with an all-electric drive in 2024. As such, every model in the German carmaker's product portfolio will be available with a battery-electric variant as early as next year. The brand with the Blitz is committed to a fully electric product portfolio in Europe by 2028.


Florian Huettl, Opel CEO, said: "With the successor to the Crossland we will make the fun of battery-electric driving available across our entire model range - and give our customers access to locally emissions-free mobility in every one of our models."


Today's wide range of battery-electric Opel models already extends from the popular Corsa Electric and Mokka Electric, to the Combo-e Life and the Zafira-e Life people carriers, to the Rocks Electric quadricycle, available depending on country. These vehicles have just been joined by the new Astra Electric, sporting a range of 418km WLTP and available to order as a 5-door hatch and Sports Tourer estate in Ireland from late 2023, and they will now be followed next year by the all-electric successors to the Crossland and Grandland SUV. In addition, battery-electric versions of the complete commercial vehicle portfolio are available, depending on country, including the Combo-e and Vivaro-e, together with the Rocks Electric Kargo and Movano-e. Opel will thus offer 15 fully electrified models by the end of this year alone.


The portfolio of Opel electrified vehicles features alternatives to pure battery-electric drive, powered by plug-in petrol hybrid powertrains. The Astra GSe and the Grandland GSe ranges offer a system power output of up to 300hp and strong maximum torque of up to 520 Nm, with CO2 emissions from as low as 25-28 g/km combined. Within months, 48V hybrids will join the electrified line-up, starting with the recently announced new Opel Corsa. The 74 kW/100 hp and 100 kW/136 hp engines will come with a new dual-clutch automatic transmission. The new Corsa will thus offer customers a choice of drives, from purely battery-electric to hybrid to highly efficient combustion engines, which is unrivalled in this segment.


In the meantime, Opel is continuing to pioneer the development of hydrogen fuel cell transporters. The Vivaro-e-Hydrogen is already on the road in a number of European countries and a large fuel cell transporter is scheduled to follow in 2024. Opel will offer 15 fully electric models in its line-up by the end of 2023, with a new all-electric Crossland and Grandland to join the range in 2024. By 2028, Opel will offer a fully electric product portfolio in Europe.
