Opel wants to reissue the Monza as a top model above the Insignias according to the magazine Auto Motor und Sport – as a pure electric car in the form of a crossover. “We also want to transfer the theme of sportiness into the future. Regardless of what it will be called then. One thing is clear: mobility must be fun, it must appeal to the heart and not just the brain. This applies all the more to electric mobility,” said Opel boss Michael Lohscheller.

Monza was the name of a sports coupé of the car manufacturer, which was built between the late 1970s and mid 1980s. In 2013, a Monza Concept was unveiled once again, which was intended to provide a glimpse into the future of the Opel brand. After Opel was taken over by PSA, it became quiet around this vehicle.

According to the report, the new Monza will be around 4.90 metres long and will be based on PSA’s eVMP architecture. This will make it possible to build electric cars with batteries with capacities ranging from 60 to 100 kWh. This should enable a range of 400 to 600 km. The market launch of the Monza could be in 2024. Prices are not yet known.

The vehicle could compete with Volkswagen ID.4 and the Skoda Enyaq, even if these cars are supposed to be launched much earlier.
