opel announces sporty ev subsidiary

Opel has announced that the GSe acronym is to return as a sub-brand for particularly dynamic electrified models. As part of the GSe comeback, the three letters do not stand for “Grand Sport injection” as before, but for “Grand Sport electric”.

In future, the GSe models will be at the top of the respective model series, according to Opel. This means that there should soon be a number of GSe models: As is well known, Opel wants to offer every model series as an electrified version by 2024, and from 2028 only electric Opels are to be sold.

However, it is not yet clear exactly how the GSe variants will differ from the basic vehicles. In the press release, Opel says: “The award-winning Opel design provides the sporty look – but beyond that, future GSe customers can look forward to a chassis that is just as dynamically tuned and provides plenty of driving pleasure.” This suggests that no changes to the e-drive are planned. But: an increase in power is not explicitly ruled out either.

“I am very happy to announce the return of GSe as our top of the range, sporty sub-brand in the immediate future. We have once again taken inspiration from our rich heritage – as we did for our new critically acclaimed bold and pure design – and given it a modern twist,” says Opel CEO Florian Huettl. “In future, the label GSe will not only signify dynamic, fun to drive cars but also stand for ‘Grand Sport electric’, in full alignment with our ambitious plans to become a fully electric brand.”

As a preview of the future of the sub-brand, Opel had previously shown the electric concept Manta GSe ElektroMOD.
