The entire globe was ready for a look at what will likely be the next-generation 2018 Holden Commodore and 2018 Buick Regal, but rumors of a 2016 Paris Motor Show debut for the 2017 Opel Insignia proved to be untrue.
The Irish Times reports Opel will instead save the all-new Insignia for the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, leaving a 2018 Buick Regal debut up in the air at this point.
If we were to piece together a basic timeline, the Insignia’s debut at the 2017 Geneva Show could mean a 2017 New York International Auto Show debut for the 2018 Regal. But that’s just an educated guess on our part. We don’t expect Holden to show off the 2018 Commodore until local production nears the end in late 2017.
Instead, Paris was all about the 2017 Opel Ampera-e, which was revealed alongside a 500 km range distance. You can watch the entire livestream of Opel’s press conference right here.
