2013 IAA: Opel presents the Monza Concept [Live Photos]

Opel has given us more information about its new concept car, the Monza Concept, as this was introduced the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Monza Concept offers a preview for Opel brand strategy. To sum it up, this concept vehicle is stylish and offers ultra-modern efficiency. Opel has previously used the name Monza in 1977 also at the IAA.

Opel used the name on a large coupe with a smooth-running six-cylinder engine. The Monza Concept presents us with a new interpretation of the sculptural design that was first seen on the Insignia, with certain distinctive lines, high-precision design and ideal sweeping contours. The Monza Concept is 4.69 meters long and is fitted with seats that are inspired by ocean waves lapping on the shore.

It has a height of only 1.31 meters but Opel claims that the passengers still have plenty of headroom because of the fact that the whole cockpit structure is about 15 centimeters lower than in traditional models. The Monza Concept has a 500-liter trunk space. The expansive doors offer maximum functionality but also look amazing when being opened.

Like a condor’s wings, these doors swing up to give a clear view of the spacious, open passenger cabin (or the surroundings from the inside) because it doesn’t have a B-pillar. What engineers built for the Monza Concept is an electric drive with a CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) range extender, a product of the advanced development of the Ampera’s pioneering technology.
