Opel has officially presented the first images of Flextreme GT / E, the concept which indicates the direction of the ecological design of the Deutsche brand will use in the future.
|Brand/Model/Version||Opel Flextreme GT/E|
|Maximum power (CP/rpm)||158|
|Maximum torque (Nm/rpm)||370|
Opel presented the first images of the concept before the debut from the Geneva Motor Show.
The model will use electric propulsion train of Volt and Ampere models and is described by the Opel staff as “a new type of GT”.
The concept prefigures both future Opel top model and the progress of the design language that has been expressed recently by Insignia and Astra models.
Also, the new concept shows the aerodynamic potential of some future models.
Flextreme has a very elegant line of the ceiling, which is willing to over 19 inches below the level of the same lines of the Insignia’s body, which helps drag a coefficient of 0.22.
The air resistance is significantly reduced through the “blades” located on both sides of the rear taillights, which are automatically driven at speed to keep air being attached to a body for a longer period of time, while it offers designers a additional visual flexibility in terms of posterior vehicle.
Although it is seven inches shorter than an Insignia, the Flextreme GT / E is an exterior design study that offers the same level of interior space and an Insignia.
This is achieved through the increased wheelbase to 2900 mm as 2735 mm over the Insignia. The batteries are placed in front of the rear wheel to get extra stability and a mass balance between decks.
Propulsion of the Opel Flextreme GT / E is realized by the electric engine of 158 hp and found also on the Ampera, which offers 366 Nm of torque from the first rotation.
The engine engages the front wheels, which have 21-inch wheels wrapped with 195/45 tires, all in an attempt to streamline this model.
For battery charging, Opel Flextreme uses an internal combustion engine of 1.4 liters and 70 hp, which increases the autonomy of this model at about 482 km, compared to 56 kilometers which can be realized on a full charge.
On the other hand, acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is accomplished in about nine seconds, and top speed is 201 km / h.
Although the Opel staff said that the model is far from the production stage, they points out that the Flextreme has an important purpose in the development of future models of the manufacturer in Rüsselsheim.
