Sometimes rumors turn out to be… Well just that, rumors. But other times they turn out to be true. In the case of the Vauxhall (or Opel if you like) Monza concept rumors they were bang-on correct. The concept was previewed earlier today by Opel/Vauxhall CEO, Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann, and it will indeed make its debut at the Frankurt Motor Show in September.
The Vauxhall Monza concept represents a vision of the company’s future design direction. Vauxhall say the styling of the car will have a long-term impact on the design of their next-generation vehicles, hinting that this is a fairly good indication of what buyers can expect their Vauxhalls to look like for the next few years.
Vauxhall and Opel say the Monza Concept will offer outstanding efficiency through its architecture and use of materials, as well as in its aerodynamics and ground-breaking powertrain solution. In layman’s terms that means lightweight construction and economic drivetrains – possibly including a hybrid.
Inside, the Monza concept will offer the latest in connectivity and infotainment systems. Quite what they are is still a mystery.
Commenting on the concept Neumann said: “I can’t yet go into detail about how the Monza Concept’s interior design – and especially its trend-setting technologies – will change the driving experience. However, I can guarantee that viewed from any angle, its innovative body design and perfect proportions will turn heads. But they are just a visible expression of the great substance you will find under the bodywork. Everyone should visit us at the Opel/Vauxhall stand at the IAA to get a look at our exciting future!”
