Opel is working hard on a new generation of popular models, and the current version will remain in the market for two more years.

Expected, the next Astra is based on the EMP2 platform of the French PSA group, which will enable the German manufacturer to offer customers and a variant of the hybrid drive.
In addition, an agreement was reached that the new generation of Opel's compact model is being re-produced on domestic soil – in Germany. That is how the future Astra will join the current Insignia model that is already being built at a factory in Rieselsheim.
Opel expects new investments in this plant that will enable continuous work in two shifts and a sustainable future of the plant.
Otherwise, the current Astra K is currently being produced in the UK and Poland, while the previous generation, Astra J, also entered Rieselsheim between 2009 and 2015.
