Would you like to drive an environmentally friendly and fuel efficient car without sacrificing your driving pleasure? We work every day to keep the environmental impact of your vehicle as small as possible while providing the performance, flexibility and convenience that you expect from Opel. We are not only continuously improving conventional engines, we are also working on a full range of new, cleaner and more fuel-efficient technologies – including pure electric propulsion and various hybrid concepts.
We strive to improve CO2-emissions and fuel consumption without restricting driving performance. This is the principle behind the ecoFLEX® models. ecoFLEX® technology consists of a lot of small, clever, changes that add up to a big increase in overall efficiency. It means improving fuel systems and eliminating hidden drags on consumption. Car buyers welcome the opportunity to drive both economically and ecologically: nowadays, up to 40 percent of all Opel models sold carry the ecoFLEX® badge.
A responsible strategy for protecting resources demands the development of new propulsion technologies. Our pioneering work in this field is already bearing fruit.
The Ampera – the first and only extended range electric vehicle for everyday use – will be launched at the end of 2011. Additional electric vehicles are on the drawing board. Small battery-operated cars which are ideal for shorter distances, hybrid cars and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles like the HydroGen4 are already being developed.
We’re making better use of resources than ever: with a long-running recycling-oriented design program and a comprehensive recovery concept for end of life vehicles.
We have always been at the forefront of green technology: Water-based paints, catalytic converter as standard, fuel cells and much more. Find out more about Opel’s innovative environmental technology.
