Following the withdrawal of Chevrolet from the European market, Opel has plans to introduce a new entry level model positioned below the Corsa and Adam, according to German motoring magazine Auto Motor Und Sport.
The new model will ride on a global small car platform from General Motors and will have four doors and four seats. The exact sticker price is not known, but is expected to be less than €10,000, which is incredibly frugal.
As the Chevrolet brand is responsible for selling affordable, entry level models in Europe, such as the Spark, this new Opel model is rumored to be a compensation for the brands departure from the market. The new small car is expected to go on sale sometime in late 2015 to early 2016. It is not yet clear if this is the same car that will join the Insignia and Zafira on the production line in Russelheim, but that could be the case.
