Opel has made a series of announcements today regarding the company's near future.

Starting with January 2015, Opel will stop selling cars in China due to a very weak demand since last year the firm's 22-dealer network shifted just 4,365 units. Instead, Opel will collaborate more with Buick for China-spec models and they are already examining potential projects.

Opel is going to make a significant 245M EUR investment at its Ruesselsheim plant in Germany where they will produce a new model which we will learn more about towards the end of the year. At the same facility Opel plans on putting together a new model that will be sold in U.S. under the Buick badge sometime in the second half of the decade.

Besides the existing four versions of the Insignia and Zafira Tourer, the Ruesselsheim factory will also assemble another variant of the Insignia in the years to come.
