Opel is coming out with it's own version of the new Chevrolet Volt, a european sister.
"Opel will have a version of the Volt that will look more like an Opel. It will be a close sister to the Chevrolet Volt," said a GM source.
"We are trying to position Opel toward the upper side of the high-volume segments and having the Volt technology will give Opel a competitive edge," the source told Automotive News Europe.
GM aims to launch production versions of the Volt in the US in late 2010. The proposed European variant, the Flextreme, was shown at the 2007 IAA in Frankfurt.
The first models to reach Europe will be supplied from the Hamtramck assembly plant in Detroit, but GM also plans to make the in Europe.
