Opel Stand Electrifies the 68th International Motor Show
- “Opel goes electric!“: Welcome to OPELHAUS 120 in Hall 11.0
- Stand opening: With Opel CEO Lohscheller and brand ambassador Klopp
- Augmented Reality: New insights into Opel Corsa-e and Opel Grandland X Hybrid4
- Distinguished visitor: Chancellor Angela Merkel at Opel stand tomorrow
Rüsselsheim. Yesterday Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller and brand ambassador Jürgen Klopp opened the Opel stand in Hall 11.0. The first two days of the 68th International Motor Show in Frankfurt are traditionally reserved for media representatives. Lohscheller and Liverpool coach Klopp jointly presented the five Opel world premieres at this year's IAA to the journalists: the new Corsa and Corsa-e, the new Astra, the plug-in hybrid Opel Grandland X Hybrid4 (fuel consumption: WLTP1 1.4-1.3 l/100km, 32-29 g/km CO2; NEDC2 1.5 l/100km 35-34 g/km CO2; all figures weighted, combined and preliminary) and the world's first purely electric rally car – the Opel Corsa-e Rally.
The OPELHAUS 120 stand is a reminiscence of 120 years of automobile production in Rüsselsheim and of the clear Bauhaus style, with Opel flavour highlights adding emotional and modern accents – and embodies the overarching motto “Opel goes electric!”. With special tablets and Augmented Reality visitors to the stand can take a virtual X-ray look at the hidden technological highlights of the Corsa-e and Grandland X Hybrid4. The automaker thus makes electric mobility easier for everyone to experience and understand.
Tomorrow, Thursday (September 12), the official opening of the IAA takes place with Chancellor Angela Merkel. The head of the German government will also visit the Opel stand during her traditional tour of the exhibition. CEO Lohscheller will then inform the Chancellor about Opel's electrification strategy. Trade visitor days run until Friday, before the IAA opens its doors to the general public on Saturday, September 14.
