Opel receives approval from GM to produce a small city car

German carmaker Opel, a subsidiary of GM, which has to be saved in extremis some closure recue downstream of the house-mother to design and produce a small city car.

This car should normally proceed with the project "Trixx" * present in 2004. Moreover, one can readily imagine that this city would have dimensions approximating to those of the smart fortwo and Toyota iQ.

In all likelihood, it would have four passengers can take place and it was like the little Toyota iQ. However, smart engineers are currently working with their vis-a-vis the French Renault develop on the basis of the model Renault Twingo a smart four-seater car that could be called Forfour.

Opel compact cars will be assembled at the factory in Eisenach, Germany. This, this will save an announced plant closure would have thrown on the pavement near 1600 workers.

In total, 90 million will be invested to convert the plant to the new needs of the German society.

At first, this car will be powered by gasoline and / or diesel engine on the old continent. It is also a matter of developing small city car powered entirely to electricity.

Opel provides for the small car market in 2013.

Personally, I would not be surprised to see GM use the efforts made by Opel engineers to offer a model equivalent in North America. In addition, the British subsidiary Vauxhall would normally enjoy the presence of this small urban car vocation.
