REPORT: Minicar, EV on the way from Opel
Opel showed off the Trixx Concept (pictured) five years ago, but it was left out back to die in favor of the Spark. Half a decade later, the Spark hasn't arrived, meanwhile the Ford Ka has solidified its position with 500,000 sales in the UK alone over the last 13 years, the equally cheap and cuter-than-kittens Fiat 500 is still winning awards and stealing hearts and the VW Up! is banging drums.
When Magna was going to purchase Opel, it said it would have a minicar for the brand by 2012. GM gave no timeline for its arrival, but did say that it was also looking at battery-powered electric cars -- possibly an electric Spark with the help of Reva? Whatever it is -- as long as it's good -- it can't come too soon.
