Facelifted Opel Zafira Would Look Good With OPC Body Kit

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Buick fans are asking for the Opel Zafira; Holden buyers in Australia want it too. But all we want from the 2017 Zafira is an OPC model. Unfortunately, that will never happen. Mercedes has made an AMG model of every car it makes except the B-Class. That just shows you there is no market, but there is one for an OPC line or "warm hatch" version.

Opel’s New Electric Ampera-e Spied; Does It Stand A Chance In Europe If Priced Same As $37k Bolt?

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The new Opel Ampera-e doesn’t hold many secrets, as we already know that it’s based on the Chevrolet Bolt and the German brand teased it with two official shots in February, but GM’s subsidiary isn’t quite done tweaking it for the Euro market.

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Slated to debut in the flesh at the 2017 Paris Motor Show, the Ampera-e is a pure electric effort that holds great promise for the German manufacturer’s EV ambitions.

2017 Opel Ampera-e Spied

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - When Chevy announced the Bolt EV back in January, we knew that eventually Opel and Vauxhall would follow suit. It took a little while, but we’re finally seeing spy shots of the Opel/Vauxhall version of the Bolt EV, which is being called the Ampera-e. Of course, the Opel Ampera was a pretty much a flop and failed to live up to expectations, but for some reason the brand thinks the Ampera-e will be a success. As is the usual case with badge-engineered models, the Ampera-e is practically identical to the Chevy Bolt EV, so don’t expect to see anything new here.
