Geneva 2010: Opel Flextreme GT / E Concept

     Geneva 2010: Opel Flextreme GT / E Concept

  Opel had already baited us with a little teasing that revealed nothing new concept that sits on the Opel stand beside the Ampera very (too?) Near the Chevrolet Volt and the new Meriva.

The Flextreme GT / E and its 4.70m long is a letter of intent for the Opel brand in the future. In a difficult context for the brand, it will allow employees (those who remain ...) to lift his head and look ahead. With Flextreme Opel starts to move forward both in terms of technical design. The saloon opens a new definition of the hybrid Opel summarized in a new acronym: E-REV, which broadly defines a "technology of the car battery life", a hybrid to make simple.

Flextreme GT / E is also included in the new Opel strategy called "e-mobility unlimited" to be applied to all vehicles in range on all market segments and also announces the next product design orientation of the mark.

Flextreme GT / E is low (1.38m) and fluid to obtain a drag coefficient of just 0.22 allowing it to reach 200 km / h. Note also the vertical panels of 35 cm which déploientle throughout the body once past 50 km / h to control air flow and avoid turbulence synonymous with consumerism. If the wheels are 21 inches, they are still close (195/45) while the body is in carbon, chassis part aluminum and polycarbonate glazing.

The technology used is the same as the Ampera but thanks to the efforts of relief and aerodynamics, all-electric autonomy should remain at 60km in mixed 500 km with an estimated consumption of 1.6l/100km and CO2 emissions of less than 40g. With torque of 370 Nm, 0-100km / h is given under 9s. On paper of course.
