Geneva preview: Economical Vauxhalls

February 11, 2010 § Leave a comment

The big Vauxhall-Opel story at the Geneva (apart from the factory closures and search for bail-outs) is going to be the Meriva mini-MPV (pictured), but the firm’s also promising ‘a futuristic concept car which is set to boost the company’s credentials as a leader in environmental vehicles.’  It’s going to preview the future Vauxhall-Opel thinking on design and engineering, will have ‘green innovation and alternative propulsion’, and Vauxhall hints that it’s going to be big and comfortable nonetheless. A new-age electric Omega estate? If only.

This will be on display alongside the extended-range hybrid Ampera (Euro relation to the Chevy Volt), and the Corsa ecoFlex, the most fuel-efficient Vauxhall yet sold (76.3mpg, and 98g/km of carbon dioxide).
