Opel may find itself more electrifying in the future with a report from Reuters promising a new small EV for the brand to hit the market in three years time. How small? At the very least, smaller than the current Opel Ampera, sibling of the Chevrolet Volt. It will be more affordable, too.
To us, it sounds like some sort of future European variant of the Chevrolet Spark EV. An Opel Adam EV, perhaps? If that’s the case, it only means good things for the little Adam. We found the Spark EV to be joy to drive in its own right, in no small part thanks to its motor with 400 lb-ft of torque. And it will only add variety to the Adam’s growing line, which has expanded to the Adam S and Adam Rocks in a short time.
Another upside to offering an Adam EV or something along those lines is the benefit of helping to meet emission requirements set in place by European lawmakers.
