Opel is Celebrating

Opel is celebrating this year’s 125th anniversary of the start of automobile production in Rüsselsheim under the motto “Forever forward since 1899” – the car manufacturer is inviting customers, employees and guests of honour to Rüsselsheim on Saturday, June 8, 2024. Opel CEO Florian Huettl: “On this day, we will show how Opel is actively shaping change in the automotive industry. 125 years after our first automobile, we offer at least one purely electric variant of every model. At our German production sites, we manufacture on state-of-the-art platforms, have set up battery shops and are continuously reducing our emissions – with the goal of being a CO2-neutral manufacturer by 2038”.

In addition to a ceremony with speakers from politics and Stellantis, many areas will open their doors exclusively for the Opel Festival. Pioneering concept cars will be exhibited in the Design Centre to mark its 60th anniversary, and the plant will proudly showcase production of the Astra. In addition, the all-new Opel Frontera and Opel Grandland will make their public premieres. In the N50 building, a fascinating pop-up exhibition will immerse automobile milestones in worlds of light. On the parking lot behind the “Adam Opel Haus”, the Opel Corsa Rally Electric – the protagonist in the world’s first electric one-make rally cup – will demonstrate its prowess. A limited number of motorsport fans will be able to register for a ride. Visitors of all ages will find numerous other activities on the premises.
