The Future of Opel

Growing up in South Africa, people are familiar with the German vehicle manufacturer, Opel. Opel has been through various changes of ownership throughout the decades, with the General Motors group being the more notable managing group of the brand. Today, Opel forms part of the French PSA Group that also owns Peugeot, Citroën, and the former European side of operations for Chevrolet.

Recently, the PSA Group announced their uncertainty regarding any vehicle manufacturing for the Vauxhall brand past 2021 in Britain. The Vauxhall brand consists of rebranded Opel and Chevrolet vehicles in the British market, with the PSA Groups raising their concerns about the Brexit situation in Great Britain and how it may influence their decision for future car manufacturing for the British market. Britain has also passed a law forbidding any petrol- and diesel-powered vehicles to be sold past the year of 2040 on British soil, in an attempt to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles to lower overall pollution with a drastic cut to carbon dioxide emissions from cars and other vehicles.

The British have taken the first step towards such a future, with the implementation of the NBFL, or the New Bus for London, operating solely on electric power. This does not mean that the future for a brand such as Opel looks bleak, because the PSA Group will eventually go full electric, heralding the era of electric Opel models.
