Opel could resurrect the Adam although it would be electric and cheaper

Vauxhall ADAM ROCKS

The electrification of the automobile sector has put the "old" European brands on guard. It is clear that now and with the technology they have, they cannot face, with solid guarantees of success, the Chinese firms that are arriving in Europe at the moment. MG has the compact hatchback 4 as a Trojan horse and others like Omoda or BYD want to replicate their success. However, in Stellantis they are going to put up a fight and Opel She will be one of the warriors.

As you know Stellantis plans “cheap” electric vehicle offensive. A price of 25 thousand euros has been set and for this it has given shape to a multi-energy platform called Smart Car. However, before the details we must tell you that in Opel would also be thinking of launching their own version. And not only that, there are rumors that suggest that she would do it using a name that they already had for sale. You remember Adam, don't you?

This hypothetical electric Opel Adam would be a clone of the Citroën Ë-C3 and future Fiat Panda... for a price of 25 thousand euros...

If you remember a little you should remember the worn-out one Adam Opel. How Life Is, and Coincidences, was born to stand up to the successful Fiat 500 when the house of lightning was under the umbrella of General Motors. And today the German and its former Italian rival "make" plans together and this hypothetical future electric Adam would be one of them. In fact, the other day we were talking to you about the new Citroën Ë-C3 electric which will also lead to the new Panda installment.

Well, for Opel to succeed with this hypothetical new electric Adam, it has to share possible costs with sister firms. According to statements by Florian Huettl, General Director of Opel, to Autocar colleagues...

«An urban was possible since There is room in the new range for a model smaller than the Corsa«

Of course, at no time did he confirm that this model had already been designed or that they were in it. In addition, he indicated that its sale price should be around 25 thousand euros. Huettl added that…

«That is the goal. Our goal for the next generation is 25.000 euros for an electric vehicle«

Today Stellantis is finalizing the development of the new STLA Small platform. With it, they foresee a new range of electric vehicles that will go from segment A to C with a size that will start at 3,6 meters. Its launch will take place in 2026 and with it they will take over from the Smart Car that the Citroën Ë-C3 has released. And not only that, it would have batteries with capacities that would range between 37 kWh and 82 kWh to offer great autonomy...

Vauxhall could also have its own version to conquer the United Kingdom...

The United Kingdom, although it may not seem like it, is one of the most complex markets in Europe. The best example is that Opel sells its models in this country under the Vauxhall brand. Fiat is not doing well, Peugeot and DS are not standing out and the case of Chrysler and Jeep was uneven. Therefore, for Stellantis to be successful in this adventure, the youngest of Opel has to have a clone in Vauxhall. In the memory there are still the Viva and this Adam who did like it there.

So be patient...
