OPEL / VAUXHALL GT-E Flextreme . GENEVA 2010

Opel Flextreme GT/E Concept made its debut at the 80th Geneva Motor Show

(March 4 - 14, 2010), it will boost the company's credentials as a leader in green

technologies, offering expressive design with efficient environmental performance - and

engineered with German precision.

In Opel's strategy for achieving more independence from fossil fuels, electricity plays a key

role. The 4.7-meter long Opel Flextreme GT/E Concept illustrates how extended-range electric

vehicle (E-REV) technology can be plugged into large or mid-size vehicles, as well as

compact cars such as the upcoming Opel Ampera.

Opel calls this strategy e-mobility unlimited: adapting the highly efficient E-REV drive system

- which removes the limitations of battery-only power - to vehicles across all market segments.

To enjoy zero CO2 driving emissions Opel-style, the Flextreme GT/E concept shows that size

doesn't matter.

The purposeful design also enables the Opel Flextreme GT/E Concept to achieve a projected

drag co-efficient of just 0.22, which helps it reach a 200 km/h-plus top speed as well as

conserve energy and extend its driving range. Stand-out visual features include a low and

wide stance, wing-shaped lights front and rear, a distinctive nose and grille, floating C-pillars

and muscular, sculptured bodywork.

"The Opel Flextreme GT/E Concept shows the shape of things to come from Opel," says

Frank Weber, Vice President, Corporate and Product Planning. "Bold, expressive and highly

efficient, it represents the product strategy we will apply to all our future vehicles, large and

small, across all market segments."
