Rüsselsheim. Opel strengthens its German locations with additional investments: The company will add a new model to its Rüsselsheim plant. For competitive reasons the company is not in a position to reveal any details at this point in time.
"With DRIVE! 2022 we have developed a clear ten-year plan which focuses on a multi-billion dollar model offensive. The offensive is in full swing. And we are already paving the way for the products that will give us the chance for further growth the end of the decade" says Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.
Currently four versions of the Insignia are assembled in Rüsselsheim. From the beginning of 2015, the current generation of the Opel Zafira Tourer – which is now being built in Bochum – will follow.
At the same time, the company has today announced together with its partner PSA Peugeot Citroen that in future the C-CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) models will be produced in PSA’s French Sochaux plant. In return, the Spanish Opel plant in Saragossa will, as already announced, produce the successor of the B-MPVs of both companies.
“The alliance between PSA and Opel is based on a balanced approach”, said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.
