Production of new Opel Corsa started in Zaragoza; Corsa-e in early 2020

The sixth generation of the Opel Corsa is now rolling off the production line at the Spanish Groupe PSA plant in Zaragoza. As of early 2020, Opel will also build the Corsa-e in Zaragoza.



The Corsa-e will come with an output of 100 kW (136 hp) and an electric range of 330 kilometers (2015 miles) (WLTP. Together with the Grandland X Hybrid, the Corsa-e is bringing in the electric era at Opel. Opel will offer an electric version of every model in its portfolio in 2024.

The new Corsa is one of the most aerodynamic models in its class and considerably lighter than its predecessor. The weight reduction matches the overall sporty impression—the lightest Corsa stays below the 1,000 kilogram mark. In addition, there are highly efficient engines with lower fuel consumption and CO2 values than the best of the previous generation.

The Corsa is not only one of the most successful models in recent history with sales of around 14 million units in the last 37 years but also a milestone in our electrification offensive. The Corsa-e will be the first fully electric Opel “made in Europe”. This is a very clear sign that we are bring the future to the Zaragoza plant with the new Corsa—and that Opel goes electric.

—Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller
