2022 was an electrifying year for Opel in every respect: for 160 years, the brand with the ‘Blitz’ has been making innovations affordable for a wide audience. This was also the case in the anniversary year – first and foremost with the new Opel Astra, which celebrated its dealer premiere in the spring and has been delighting experts and customers alike ever since. Other bestsellers of the year are the Opel Mokka, the best-selling electric vehicle in its segment in autumn, and the Opel Corsa, which celebrated its 40th birthday this year.
In autumn Opel announced: “GSe” is returning – in a new, fresh guise. Where the abbreviation used to stand for “Grand Sport injection”, it now becomes Opel’s new sporty sub-brand and means “Grand Sport electric”. At the same time, Opel is consistently advancing innovations for sustainable mobility in its commercial vehicles as well: for example, the first Opel Vivaro-e HYDROGEN with hydrogen fuel cell drive are already in use with customers. Today, Opel already has 12 electrified models in its portfolio.
“2022 was an exceptional year for Opel.”
Opel CEO Florian Huettl
