In 2013, Opel/Vauxhall will begin production of an all-new city car that's targeted at the segment below its subcompact three-door Corsa model. This future model will be built at the company's Eisenbach plant in Germany. The upcoming car will offer the technology, design and convenience found in larger vehicles, but will be geared towards customers who demand a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle for urban motoring duties.
While the gasoline- or perhaps diesel-powered "Made in Eisenbach" is sure to be an efficient grocery getter, a battery-electric version, which Opel/Vauxhall suggests might be on the way, would make even more sense in congested urban areas. Opel/Vauxhall has not established concrete plans to offer a battery-powered variant of the "Made in Eisenbach," but we'd be willing to bet that a "zero-emissions" version, available in limited numbers, will pop up at a later stage.
