Opel Flextreme GT/E Geneva Concept

Opel will display four cars at the 80th Geneva motor Show in March. The specialist wants to offer accessible German engineering, innovative technology and efficient, elegant environmental responsibility. The Opel Flextreme GT/E concept car has a cool design that meets function on new generation Meriva, whose innovative storage and flexible solutions will help it extend its leadership in the small segment. The Opel Ampera is scheduled to go into production in 2011 and it seems to be a leader in alternative propulsion as it proves an electric family car is practical for everyday use. The Opel Corsa was refreshed to provide more power and more driving fun on less fuel. The Flextreme GT/E was engineered with German precision to be ecologically environmental responsible. The 4.7-meter long concept model illustrates how extended-range electric vehicle technology can be plugged into large or mid-size vehicles, as well as compact cars such as the future Ampera. The E-REV drive system adapted by Opel removes the limitations of battery-only power to vehicles across all market segments. The model underlines the fact that size does not really matter. In terms of visual features, the model has a low and wide stance, wing-shaped lights front and rear, a distinctive nose and grille, floating C-pillars and muscular, sculptured bodywork. The frontal styling has a low hood line and an extended nose section, which is clasped by wing-shaped, signature LED headlamps. The new grille execution is slim, but bold. The wind-shaped chrome bar carries a large Opel emblem, which doubles as a socket for charging the battery pack of the Flextreme GT/E. The concept is actually a very logical step in the unfolding strategy Opel has in terms of electrification of the automobile, which includes a wide range of products using battery, hybrid and fuel cell technologies.
