The company has implemented a reorganisation which has enabled it to cut its fixed costs by 28 percent in the first half of the year as well as implementing an increased level of electrification. Groupe PSA platforms and propulsion technologies forms the foundation for the extensive electrification of the Vauxhall portfolio. Four vehicles will be electrified in 2020 including the new Corsa in a pure battery electric variant, along with the Grandland X PHEV – Vauxhall’s first plug-in hybrid. There will be an electric version of every Vauxhall model by 2024.

“This offensive will strongly contribute to meeting the strict CO2 limits set by the EU” said Vauxhall/Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller. 

Charging infrastructure is a key enabler for the development of electrification. Therefore, Opel will also contribute to a charging infrastructure project at the company’s headquarters together with partners such as the city of Rüsselsheim.
