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.
- 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.
