According to media letters from Germany, Vauxhall is accommodating to ability for its iconic Monza archetypal and accompany it aback to activity as an all-electric crossover.
Monza was originally an controlling fastback auto with a six-cylinder engine, offered by Opel from 1978 to 1986. In the UK, it was awash by Opel’s sister cast – Vauxhall – as Royale Coupé. We assumption that if Ford was able to use the Mustang name to adapt its EV approach, and GM took Hummer, why not accept Opel use Monza then?

The images of the added abreast Monza abstraction are absolutely from 2013 back Opel (still beneath GM) alien at the IAA a adaptation with a adapted electric drive from the Ampera.
It has an electric drive with a CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) ambit extender (three-cylinder 1.0 SIDI turbo) instead of a petrol engine.
The new all-electric Vauxhall Monza beneath PSA apparently will be based on the all-new all-electric eVMP platform. It would be a long-range, adventurous BEV, accepted about 2024 to addition the fun agency of the brand.
The eVMP offers up to 100 kWh array packs, all-wheel drive, and up to 250 kW of arrangement output. Is that abundant to address added to the affection and not aloof the brain?
And one more, final thought. If Opel/Vauxhall does it, we assumption that the blow of the PSA brands will additionally get a blooming ablaze to action some adventurous models too.
