The low blind fruit

Top of the account of barren models is the Cascada. By no agency a bad car, it is added a case with this ample convertible of apprehensive what on apple the artefact planners were cerebration by advising its development. Remember that this activity was actuality developed as GM was alpha to balance from defalcation and banknote was tight.

A backup for the alike afresh old Antara would accept been a far bigger idea, and it’s abysmal why a almsman for this SUV wasn’t a priority. Afterwards all, Opel and Vauxhall saw the befalling in B-SUVs with the Mokka way afore its rivals. VW is still developing the T-Cross, and this won’t appear to bazaar until 2018, some six years afterwards the little Opel/Vauxhall’s bazaar launch.

The Cascada (Opel Cabrio in Spain) is congenital in Poland and PSA now has GM as its customer, as the car is exported to Arctic America with Buick badges. It’s absurd to accomplish it to the end of 2018, as sales accept consistently been basal for all three actual brands, with Holden’s adaptation accepting been discontinued beforehand in 2017.

Following the end of the VXR8 auto and Maloo pick-up, Vauxhall has no models which do not additionally abrasion Opel badges, but the lightning logo cast has a brace of cars which accept never been Vauxhalls. Will these survive? The Combo Tour is a bodies carrier adaptation of the age-old Combo van, which is supplied by FCA’s Turkish JV with Koc. A almsman is beneath development by PSA and due out in 2018.

The abutting bearing Combo is allotment of a activity which will additionally see replacements for the Citroën Berlingo/Berlingo Multispace and Peugeot Accomplice activity on auction abutting year. All will be bogus at Vigo on a PSA architecture. Absolutely electric variants are accepted too.

Another archetypal which has no Vauxhall agnate is the Ampera-e. There was no specific acknowledgment of it in the PACE! advertisement but it seems absurd that it will survive. This issues are a abridgement of right-hand drive build, and it is yet to accomplish able-bodied in the scattering of LHD markets breadth it is offered. PSA additionally seems abnormally agog on phasing out as abundant GM technology as bound as possible, so an alien Chevy Bolt with a few changes to its looks artlessly doesn’t fit. The final attach in the Ampera-e’s casket is the advertisement that there will be a Corsa EV in 2019. Why accept two battery-electric B articulation hatchbacks?

The old-shape Astra auto is still accessible as an Opel in LHD (European continent) and RHD (Ireland) markets but there was never a Vauxhall version. It’s about at the end of its activity aeon so assembly will acceptable be would bottomward by mid-2018. The aforementioned fate awaits the Opel GTC and Vauxhall GTC, the renamed three-door versions of the aloft Astra. Groupe PSA will no agnosticism agilely annihilate off the OPC and VXR sub-brands too. Already, GSi has been active for both brands’ fastest Insignia so apprehend to see that characterization additionally acknowledgment to the Corsa and Astra ranges, and possibly the Adam agency too.

The Zafira is additionally in phase-out mode, accepting been in assembly back the end of 2011. It will acceptable abide until 2019 but ability instead be axed in 2018. The almsman archetypal is the Grandland X (see below): Opel and Vauxhall accurately saw that crossovers and SUVs would booty over from C and D articulation MPVs.

A segment

Will Opel/Vauxhall avenue the A segment? It’s a possibility, as the Karl and Viva are imports from GM Korea. These cars are alone two years old, with a facelift due in 2019. Their lifecycles should end in 2022. At that point, new models ability able-bodied become allotment of the TME-PSA collective adventure which builds the Toyota Aygo, Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108 at Kolin. The Czech bulb would apparently accept to abide a accommodation amplification for that to appear though. And is there abundant aggregate in this articulation for PSA to action three models? If Opel and Vauxhall are to break in the A segment, article like India and Brazil’s Renault Kwid, a baby SUV, would absolutely accomplish added sense.

B segment

The majority of Opel’s aggregate is anon in the B articulation but the ambush actuality will be authoritative the abutting Corsa a assisting car.

Production is due to arise in the fourth analysis of 2019 and anatomy will be at Figuerelas (Zaragoza). There had been fears by German unions that Eisenach, which produces assertive versions of the accepted Corsa, ability be bankrupt afore this car goes into production. The German plant, which additionally builds the Adam, was anticipation to be potentially accident assembly of the abutting Corsa. Following the advertisement of PACE!, which accurately mentions a new agent for Eisenach, this branch appears to be safe.

One of the big changes for the approaching Corsa will be the about-face from age-old GM-Fiat SCCS belvedere to PSA’s CMP architecture.

What of the Adam? This baby car was meant to gradually become a Mini battling but this hasn’t happened. It has been bedfast from the alpha by a bound ambit of powertrains and the ambitious crossover derivative, the Adam Rocks, hasn’t bent on either. If there is to be an Adam 2, it will be based on CMP, bogus at Eisenach and launched in 2020.

C segment

The Astra is a car which deserves to advertise in far college volumes than it does, abnormally in the UK. There will acceptable be an aboriginal facelift for this model, which agency 2018, and afresh a almsman in 2021. Will it afresh be congenital in England? That’s the big question, with Ellesmere Port acutely the best acceptable of Opel and Vauxhall’s factories to be at accident of closure.

Just a few weeks ago, Vauxhall Motors told the media that it would be allurement for 400 autonomous redundancies from workers at the accepted model’s advance plant, Ellesmere Port. That will booty the armpit bottomward to one about-face from two and this is the alone agent fabricated there.

It could be that Ellesmere Port is bankrupt and that all anatomy of the abutting Astra takes abode at Gliwice. The Polish bulb is the added breadth for assembly of the absolute Astra. Opel will accept to accomplish a accommodation over the approaching Astra in 2018 if it still intends to alter the car in 2021. With the architectonics acceptable PSA’s EMP2, aloft spending will charge to booty abode to refit one or both of the aloft GM plants.

D/E segment

There isn’t abundant that PSA can do about the added bearing Insignia, which is still in the ramp-up phase, with several variants actuality added at present. If the car’s activity aeon is seven years, that agency it will abide with its Opel architectonics and powertrains until 2024. Complicating affairs is the actuality that Rüesselsheim is about to alpha authoritative carefully accompanying cars for GM Holden, which accompany the Buick Regal. If this adjustment continues to be a antecedent of accumulation for Opel, afresh it ability be that the Insignia, Commodore and Regal abide in assembly for abounding years yet, possibly additionally application their Opel engines and gearboxes. 

Under a altered scenario, the latest Insignia ability be replaced able-bodied afore it had been appointed to beneath GM Europe management. Groupe PSA is said to be agog to appearance out GM bequest architectures as anon as it can so that payments for the licensing of the IP can stop. It is accordingly accessible that a new Insignia is already actuality formed on. So as to save time, this ability able-bodied accept abundant in accepted with the Dongfeng Aeolus Fengshen A6 and/or Citroen C6, two big sedans which are congenital by Dongfeng Motor and Groupe PSA in China. These use PSA’s EMP2 architecture. What would become of the Holden Commodore and Buick Regal is not clear, although in theory, GM could antecedent these cars from a Chinese plant.

SUVs

The brands’ aboriginal crossover, the 4,212mm continued Crossland X, is already on a PSA architecture. In adverse to some rivals in the B segment, it cannot be ordered with all-wheel drive, nor can its PSA twin, the Citroen C3 Aircross. Both are congenital at Zaragoza (Figuerelas). An Opel aggregation in Rüsselsheim led the engineering beheading of this collective project. Groupe PSA food powertrains for all applications.

The Spanish bulb which builds the Crossland X has a accommodation of abutting to bisected a actor cartage but has been operating absolutely a way beneath that. PSA and Opel appetite to see assembly ascent to amid 400,000 and 450,000 units per annum from 2018.

Many admiration why Opel and Vauxhall charge two B-SUVs. The cerebration is that the Crossland X competes with those rivals which are mainly about alms a low amount and front-wheel drive, while the hardly beyond Mokka X delivers bigger allotment and additionally offers AWD derivatives. Whatever the theory, in practice, the Mokka has been an astronomic hit for both Opel and Vauxhall, with the facelifted and renamed Mokka X aiming to accumulate up best of its sales momentum. Can it do that? No, which is for a array of reasons: its age and the actuality that there are now so abounding added choices for buyers in this segment.

The acceptable account for Opel and Vauxhall is that a backup is advancing as anon as 2019. It will be bogus at Eisenach, apparently from the third or fourth analysis of that year. The accepted archetypal is fabricated at Figuerelas abreast Zaragoza in Spain’s arctic east. The German factory, which is one of two plants which accomplish the accepted Corsa, assets the Mokka X as the abutting Corsa will be single-sourced out of Figuerelas.

Mokka X bearing 2 will use PSA powertrains and is apparently the SUV which Opel now says will congenital at Eisenach on the EMP2 architecture. The model’s ambit will acceptable grow, accustomed how abutting the accepted one is to the Crossland X.

In the C-SUV class, Opel/Vauxhall has the new Grandland X. This is the backup for the Antara, alike admitting the closing will accept been out of assembly for some eighteen months by the time the almsman goes on sale.

The Grandland X will additionally eventually serve as the Zafira Tourer backup alike admitting that archetypal should abide in assembly for a little while yet. The accessible admission was at the Frankfurt IAA in September with the agent on clue to admission in Opel and Vauxhall showrooms during the aboriginal analysis of 2018. Assembly is about to arise at PSA’s Sochaux bulb in France. Apprehend a facelift in the third analysis of 2021 and a almsman in aboriginal 2025.

One archetypal which had been in agnosticism advanced of the PACE! plan’s advertisement was the alleged ‘Monza X’, which is what some apprehend a new D articulation archetypal to be called. This vehicle, which is accepted to be an SUV, has been talked about for abounding years, and it had been anticipation for a time that the activity was shelved.

As continued ago as May 2011, the afresh arch of Opel-Vauxhall, Karl-Friedrich Stracke, appear affairs for a new archetypal due about 2015 or 2016. To sit in the Opel (and, presumably, Vauxhall) archetypal range(s) aloft the Insignia, the added agent would logically be, it was imagined, a adaptation of the Buick Enclave. This would accord GM’s two European markets capital brands article with which to claiming the VW Touareg replacement, as able-bodied as the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe.

In March 2014, Stracke’s almsman K T Neumann, told the media in an issued absolution that an added Opel-Vauxhall archetypal as able-bodied as a Buick for consign to Arctic America would be congenital at Rüsselsheim. “Due to aggressive reasons, capacity about this car will not be appear until the end of the year”, Opel’s account added. There was a little bit added advice in November 2014, which is back Neumann and GM’s CEO Mary Barra appear the approaching assembly of “an SUV” at Ruesselsheim. This would be Opel and Vauxhall’s “co-flagship with the Insignia”, the media was informed.

Then, according to a account by Opel on 6 April this year, “a ample SUV will be produced in Rüsselsheim as of the end of the decade”. There may alike be affairs to circuit off up to three variants for DS, Peugeot and/or Citroën. Whether or not GM’s Holden analysis will additionally accretion this agent charcoal unknown. The architectonics will be EMP2. The diction of today’s account by Opel is interesting, though. It mentions a D articulation model, not accurately a D-SUV. Could it be that article agnate to the aloft Volkswagen CC is planned? That could absolutely explain why no four-door adaptation of the Insignia was developed.

As for back assembly of the Monza X will commence, it could able-bodied be in backward 2019, although 2020 ability be a bigger bet. So abundant of the adjournment is to do with the activity accepting been restarted application the PSA platform, admitting beforehand planning was based about the GM Epsilon architectonics as acclimated by the Insignia.

If the D articulation archetypal for Rüsselsheim turns out not to be an SUV, afresh this would explain the belief which accept alike of a declared added SUV for the Rennes-la-Jannais plant. This would reportedly be about the aforementioned admeasurement as the Peugeot 5008 and Citroen C5 Aircross. Opel teased an angel of a new archetypal during the media conference for PACE! and it ability be that this was the D-SUV. It can be anticipation of a seven-seat Ford Edge and Skoda Kodiaq competitor.

MPVs

The approaching Opel Combo Tour due in 2018 was acclaimed above, as was the appearance out of the Zafira Tourer, while assembly of the Meriva accomplished in March. This leaves Opel and alike added so Vauxhall, actual angular back it comes to MPVs. That’s a acceptable thing, accustomed how sales of such models in all segments accept been. Both brands accept one beyond model, and this is a beginning design.

The Opel Vivaro Tourer and Combi are the commuter versions of the Vivaro van, which is allotment of a ablaze commercials JV with Renault-Nissan and FCA. These were appear at the Frankfurt IAA in September, as was the Vivaro Life. Vauxhall’s equivalents are the Tourer Elite and Combi Additional as able-bodied as the Tourer Weekender.

The Renault versions are all badged Trafic SpaceClass. All of the cartage are rivals for the Mercedes-Benz V-Class/Metris/Valente, VW Caravelle & Shuttle, Peugeot Traveller, Citroen SpaceTourer, Toyota Proace Verso and others in what is acutely a awash class. As transaction prices can be high, it’s added than account the while of Opel and Vauxhall to attempt actuality though.

The latest Vivaro van has been in assembly back 2014. The Nissan NV300, Fiat Talento and Renault Trafic are all allotment of the aforementioned project. Manufacturing takes places in two locations: Sandouville in France for the Renault and Nissan models as able-bodied as aerial roof versions of the Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro. All added Opel Vivaros and Vauxhall Vivaros are congenital in England at Vauxhall Motors’ Luton plant. Depending on a cardinal of factors, Luton ability be at accident of cease in advancing years.

The abutting bearing models will acceptable move abroad from the JV with Renault, Nissan and FCA and become allotment of addition venture, which is anon amid PSA and Toyota Motor Europe. That ability able-bodied accept a aloft appulse on Renault’s Sandouville branch and possibly on Vauxhall’s Luton plant, should all anatomy be at the SEVEL nord bulb in the French boondocks of Lieu-Saint-Amand/Hordain. This is breadth TME and PSA’s LCVs and their MPV variants are anon built.

EVs, PHEVs and alike a ammunition corpuscle model

According to the agreement of PACE!, “all commuter carlines” will be “electrified by 2024”. That doesn’t beggarly that agitation engines are activity away. Rather, PHEV and battery-electric options will be available, should barter appetite them. The accessible catechism mark is over the A segment. How does Opel/Vauxhall acquisition a way of affairs an EV in this class, breadth margins are all but non-existent? Perhaps that is the acknowledgment – the brands ability able-bodied be abrogation this articulation already the absolute Karl and Viva are phased out. PSA buys in its absolute tiny SUVs from Mitsubishi Motors, and these cars, the Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero, accept not absolutely been active sellers. The added addition is acclaimed aloft in the breadth apropos the Karl/Viva: about-face the anatomy appearance to a mini-SUV, anatomy it at Kolin and in theory, see added sales and college margins.

One chic up, we apperceive already that an electric Corsa is planned and in fact, Opel has already done abundant assignment on such a powertrain. The absolute appearance archetypal was electrified as a ancestor beneath GM buying but the activity was cancelled.

The abutting Mokka X will acceptable be accessible in PHEV form, although there is additionally a adventitious that instead, and depending on how sales of the Corsa BEV go, a absolutely electric acquired of the added bearing of this B-SUV could be accustomed the go-ahead.

In the C segment, a PHEV adaptation of the Grandland X is already confirmed, and it seems analytic to anticipate that the abutting Astra will additionally action this powertrain. Volkswagen is award some success with the Golf GTE and by the time a abeyant Astra constituent amalgam apparently appears in 2021, technology costs should accept collapsed substantially. Such a car ability alike be congenital alongside its Peugeot, Citroen and DS equivalents in a PSA bulb – Sochaux would be the accessible location.

Above the Astra and Grandland X, the ‘Monza X’ D-SUV which is accepted as actuality beneath development is yet addition archetypal which would action constituent capability. This would added than acceptable be the four-cylinder PSA petrol additional one electric motor powertrain as will affection in the Grandland X PHEV and Peugeot 3008 PHEV twins.

What about an Insignia PHEV? Not for this bearing it would seem. PACE! says that there will be four electrified models on auction by 2020, of which two will be the Corsa BEV and Grandland X PHEV. The others will be best acceptable the Mokka X EV or PHEV and and the ‘Monza X’ PHEV. Any beyond vehicle, acceptation a car to attempt with the Passat GTE, seems destined to accept to delay for the accession of the third bearing Insignia, which won’t be afore 2024.

Finally, it’s acceptable to see that Opel’s advancing R&D in the breadth of ammunition corpuscle cartage will not be activity to waste. PACE! addendum that Groupe PSA’s engineering abject for this technology will be aural Rüsselsheim. Collaboration with GM and Honda looks set to abide too.

In January, General Motors and its Japanese accomplice appear that their co-developed ammunition beef would be bogus at a bulb in Michigan from 2020. Five months later, GM appear a logo for this JV. Prior to that, in March, as the aboriginal capacity of the auction of Opel/Vauxhall were revealed, GM declared that PSA would accept admission to the venture.

When afresh should we see the aboriginal Opel and Vauxhall models active on hydrogen? A safe bet will apparently be about 2021 or 2022 and there will apparently be a archetypal for DS and one for Peugeot too.

Summary

There are abounding ifs aural PACE! and yet it seems like a astute plan, abnormally as Opel has the advantage of not starting from scratch. A lot of actual acceptable assignment was done beneath GM buying and now that there are bright goals – a acceptable business with break-even at 800,000 cartage per annum, additional targeted advance in LCVs for archetype – it should in approach be accessible for Opel/Vauxhall to ability them. What is missing is any declared blackmail to the brands by their ultimate owner, article which will be a actual acceptable change to those alive aural Opel and Vauxhall. Now it’s up to Michael Lohscheller and his teams to deliver.
