Opel Monza Concept

The Opel Monza concept was revealed today during the Frankfurt Motor Show, one month after its online reveal. The four wheel concept is a preview for the future Opel cars, presented as a mixture of style and innovative technologies.

The manufacturer defines the unit in two simple words: connectivity and efficiency combined to reveal `the Opel car of tomorrow` (Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann, Opel CEO). The LED projection infotainment display depicts the connectivity component together with the optimal use of interior space and lightweight design which brings efficiency to the concept.

In the interior, the unit features a wide sculpted dashboard used as a single display surface. The concept introduces the innovating LED projection technology, with no less than 18 LED projectors creating a multi functional and customizable display. The information arrayed without overwhelming the driver with pictures and text by appearing only when needed or necessary.

In collaboration with the designers from Mark Adam`s, the Monza Concept brings a new touch to the sculptural design previously used on the Insignia. The general styling element for the body is inspired by the powerful and yet slim physique of a greyhound. Rear seat passengers can easily enter or leave the car due to its body sides design.

Due to the fact that the cockpit is lower than in conventional models, the interior proves to be quite generous in spite of the sporty look the auto has. The vehicle has a height of 1.31 meters and features a 500 liters volume luggage space.

The concept combines a compressed natural range extender (CNG) with an electric motor which improve the car`s CO2 emissions percentage. A new generation of three cylinder 1.0 SIDI turbo motors was also presented during Frankfurt Motor Show as Opel`s ambition is to ` combine the potential of electric propulsion with the benefits of the internal combustion engine` in a future oriented approach.
