A mysterious Opel mule has been spied in Northern Europe.

While the prototype is based on the Peugeot 2008, it features an extended wheelbase and a larger C-pillar. The model also has a Citroen steering wheel and an assortment of testing equipment.

However, the most telling detail is the German license plate and GG lettering.  This reveals the mule is from Opel and not PSA Peugeot Citroen.

We're not entirely sure what this mule is for but GM is developing two models based on PSA platforms. They include a B-segment MPV and a C-segment crossover. Given the ride height and extended wheelbase, it seems possible that the mule could be the C-segment crossover which will be built at the PSA plant in Sochaux, France.
