Opel Announces 8 Million Euro Investment Into Eisenach, Germany Plant For Adam Production6
Demand for the new Opel Adam remains red-hot, so much so that it calls for its manufacturing plant in Eisenach, Germany to ramp up production. This calls for an investment of €8 million. With it will come modifications to increase production by expanding and updating the paint shop, which will allow new Adams to move through the facility at the rate of 17 units per hour instead of 13 per hour.
This is on top of the investment of 190 million euros in buildings and production technology to get the facility ready for manufacturing the ADAM.

Let’s see, if this works:
The investment actually had already been done during the three-week annual plant holiday in August.
