Earlier today, we showed you the first photos with the new Monza Concept, but now Opel official revealed its new concept car ahead of 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. According to the official press release, the Monza Concept gives a preview for Opel brand strategy and it is described as stylish, ultra-modern efficiency on four wheels.
For those who don’t know, Monza is not a new name for Opel, as a previous model named Monza was revealed back in 1977 at the IAA and it was a large coupe with a silky smooth-running six-cylinder engine. The Monza Concept introduces a new interpretation of the sculptural design that was first showed on the Insignia, with selected distinctive lines, high-precision design and perfect sweeping contours.
With a length of 4.69 meters, the Monza Concept features seats that are modeled after ocean waves lapping on the shore. Opel says that despite the height of just 1.31 meters, the passengers have plenty of headroom due to the fact that the whole cockpit structure is around 15 centimeters lower than in conventional models.
Moreover, the Monza Concept offers a trunk space of 500 liters. The expansive doors provide maximum functionality with spectacular views when opening.
They swing up like the outstretched wings of a condor and offer an unobstructed view of the spacious, open passenger cabin (or the surroundings from the inside) thanks to the absence of a B-pillar. For the Monza Concept the engineers conceived an electric drive with a CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) range extender – a further development of the Ampera’s pioneering technology.
