the first images of the electric coupe

The German manufacturer unveils the Manta ElektroMOD, an electrified version of the Manta from the 1970s and brought up to date!

Announced in March, the German manufacturer Opel today unveils a Manta unique and very special, la GSe ElektroMOD.

At Opel, the Manta was born in the 1970s, with the first version called Blanket A. Five years later it’s the version B which will make its appearance, and will be marketed until 1988.

Almost half a century later, the German brand brought the car up to date in a fully electrified version with a unique copy, la GSe ElektroMOD.

A design faithful to the original

Overall, the concept follows the lines of the original version, although the manufacturer has allowed itself a few small adjustments to give it a “2021” air.

Note in particular the double optics on the front face, L-shaped LEDs, which change round headlights from the original version. On the grille, the Manta has the particularity of being able to “communicate” thanks to a integrated screen on the surface between the headlights. We also note the presence of 17-inch rims on the vehicle with a futuristic design.

Regarding the interior, we find the Pure Panel Opel instead of the classic dashboard, with two screens facing the driver. We will also notice the presence of a a little peculiar manual gearbox, with three reports which correspond to three speeds and a final report which puts the car in automatic gearbox mode.

An electric motor under the hood

Regarding the engine, exit the four-cylinder thermal block present in the original version. For this 2021 vintage, Opel has opted for a 147 hp electric motor offering 255 Nm of torque, transmitted to the rear wheels.

In terms of autonomy, we have about 200 km offered by the 31 kWh batteries. It is associated with a 9 kW charger which allows it to charge to 100% in less than 4 hours.
