Opel Monza concept


The Opel Monza concept has been revealed ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show unveiling and we now know that it will be powered by a natural gas-assisted extended-range electric drive system.

The concept was designed around a modular architecture which would allow for a variety of ‘sustainable powertrains’ and will be displayed with a range-extender hybrid system on board.

The new range extenders is a development of the system already found in the Opel Ampera and it comprises of an electric drive unit and a natural gas-powered version of their newly previewed turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder.

The sleek four-seat Monza Concept features very large gull-wing doors which will allow simultaneous access to the front and rear seats. This will also provide uninterrupted side vision and will make for a cleaner glasshouse, this design will make the conventional B-pillar redundant. There’s a 500-litre luggage capacity which will add to the vehicle’s practicality.

The concept showcases the latest in LED projection technology in what the company claims to be the world’s first such use in an automobile.

Making use of a whole dashboard as a single projection surface, 18 LED projectors create a continuous and adaptable 3D multi-function display which will feature both information and decorative elements. The graphics are customizable to individual tastes, and they cover vehicle and driver information as well as internet and communication options, all of which while being operational via voice and steering wheel controls.

Connectivity has been one of Opel’s main focuses with smartphone integration being a key design element of the Monza Concept.

The car will allow the driver to focus just on the driving experience, contact family and friends or connect to the internet. According to the company, the concept’s connectivity technology is a preview of their interest in the development of Car-to-Car and Car-to-X systems.
