A vision of Opel/Vauxhall's future

Opel and Vauxhall are set to reveal a groundbreaking concept ahead of its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

Known as the Monza Concept, the car represents a vision of the company’s future, while crucially giving an indication of its design targets.

“It covers a whole range of subject areas and elements. It carries them forward in a visionary fashion, expressing them with fresh inspiration and clarity. This car is a study that will have a long-term impact on the next generation of Vauxhall and Opel models.” said Opel/Vauxhall’s CEO Karl-Thomas Neumann

The Monza Concept shows what Opel/Vauxhall customers can expect to see in the future, as it focuses on two major themes: efficiency and connectivity. These are the two key aspects which will be the top priorities for the 6,000-strong team of engineers, technicians and designers developing the next generation of models for Opel and Vauxhall.

“With the Monza Concept, we make our automotive future tangible today, I can’t yet go into detail about how the Monza Concept’s interior design – and especially its trend-setting technologies – will change the driving experience. However, I can guarantee that viewed from any angle, its innovative body design and perfect proportions will turn heads. But they are just a visible expression of the great substance you will find under the bodywork. Everyone should visit us at the Opel/Vauxhall stand at the IAA to get a look at our exciting future!” concluded Karl-Thomas.

The Monza will be key to the future of Opel, given the troubles it has weathered in recent years.
