GT X Experimental: bold Vision of Opel’s Future
Opel had already announced that it would further sharpen its profile during the presentation of the strategic PACE! plan last November. Unveiling the first sketch of the GT X Experimental Concept the following year, the model that would symbolically represent the vision of its future automobiles.
Today Opel is giving a image and detail previews of the 5-door, all-electric compact SUV that more than any other model expressing Opel values: German, approachable, exciting.
The car has a coupé style, is length 4,063 millimetres (wheelbase: 2,625 mm and is built on a lightweight architecture with a reduced footprint. True to the PACE! plan promise of offering an electrified version of each Opel model by 2024, the GT X Experimental is a fully electric car with power delivered by a 50 kWh, compact next-generation lithium-ion battery with inductive charging.
The GT X Experimental does not pretend to offer full autonomous driving. However, it does have Level 3 autonomous driving functions – meaning it can handle all aspects of driving but the driver must be able to intervene in an emergency situation.
The GT X Experimental Concept reveals the new theme of future Opel models: the front Vizor and a clean, high-tech interior.
The interior’s standout feature is the instrument panel encased in a module that mimics the Opel Vizor – the Opel ‘Pure Panel’. One wide, single screen welcomes drivers and shows that the multitude of screens, buttons and controls often seen in current-day production vehicles could become obsolete.
