Opel has introduced three new vehicles and a concept at the Geneva Motor Show.

First up, the Astra OPC has an aggressive body kit and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 280 PS (206 kW / 277 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the hatchback to hit a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

When the model launches this spring, it will come nicely equipped with High Performance Struts (HiPerStruts), a FlexRide chassis, lightweight bucket seats and a limited slip differential.

Moving on, the 2013 Opel Mokka is the European version of the Buick Encore. It will go on sale later this year and slot beneath the Antara. At launch, three different engines will be offered:

  • A 1.6-liter petrol with 115 PS (85 kW / 113 hp)
  • A turbocharged 1.4-liter petrol with 140 PS (103 kW / 138 hp) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 1.7-liter CDTI diesel with 130 PS (93 kW / 128 hp) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque

Next up, the Insignia BiTurbo has a twin-turbo 2.0-liter diesel engine which produces 195 PS (143 kW / 192 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).

Last but not least, the RAD e concept uses a pedelec propulsion system which features a 250 watt electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. This setup gives the bike an electrically assisted range of 60-145 kilometers (37-90 miles). When the battery is depleted, it can be fully recharged in approximately 2.5 hours.
