Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann previewed the new Opel Monza Concept study, slated for its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show from 12 – 22 September. The Monza Concept focuses on two major themes which will be top priorities for the next generation of Opel models: efficiency and connectivity.

The Monza Concept demonstrates efficiency through its architecture and use of materials, as well as in its aerodynamics and powertrain solution. Details will be coming at the Frankfurt show.
The Monza Concept also pays homage to the seminal Opel Monza Coupé, built between 1978 and 1986. The original Monza was the first car on the market to feature a digital dashboard display and the Monza Concept continues this theme. It introduces advanced technologies for future infotainment and connectivity possibilities.
The new Monza Concept is the latest in a line of IAA studies from Opel which began in 1965 with the Opel Experimental GT. At that time, Opel was the first automaker to build a concept study in Europe and present it at an automotive trade show.
