During 2020, Opel plans to expand its model range in Russia from two to six models. Alexey Volodin, managing director of the brands Peugeot, Citroen and Opel in Russia, said this in an interview with TASS agency.
- The first of the new products from Russian dealers will be the Opel Vivaro van, which has already been certified. From the end of the first quarter, it will begin production at the PSMA plant in Kaluga, where Opel ZafirLife minibuses and similar Citroen and Peugeot models are already being produced.
Volodin did not tell about other Opel models that will appear in Russia. However, the current generation Astr and Insigni will definitely not be brought to the country, since they are built on the platforms of General Motors, the former owner of Opel. When selling the company to the French PS in 2017, the American concern banned the introduction of old models to new markets, including Russia.
- Volodin also promised to reduce the cost of Opel cars due to wider localization and the introduction to the Russian market of versions in less rich trim levels. It is also planned to start exporting Russian-assembled Opel to other countries.
Now in Russia a minibus Opel ZafirLife with an initial cost of 2,549,900 rubles and a German-built Grandland X crossover built on the basis of Citroen C5 Aircross and Peugeot 3008 are sold. 150 hp, six-speed "automatic" and front-wheel drive.
