Opel has finally taken the wraps off its new GT X Experimental concept, a coupé-styled SUV that the Rüsselsheim-based brand says previews what its cars will look like by the mid-2020s.
The five-door, four-seater, all-electric concept measures 4 063 mm long, with a wheelbase of 2 625 mm, width of 1 830 mm and height of 1 528 mm. Opel says it is built on a “lightweight architecture” and runs on 17-inch wheels.
The electric GT X Experimental delivers its power from a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery with inductive charging.
Opel claims the concept boasts “unobstructed access” thanks to rear-hinged rear doors and the fact that all four doors open to 90 degrees, while the sweeping panoramic windscreen/roof reaches far back to the rear seats.
The interior’s standout feature is an instrument panel encased in a module that mimics the vehicle’s face. A single, wide screen replaces the usual array of displays, buttons and controls. That said, screens on each end of the facia display the side views captured by the small pop-out cameras that replace the exterior mirrors.
“The Opel GT X Experimental embodies the spirit of our core brand values – German, approachable, exciting. It’s an ‘approachable’ concept that people can identify with. It confidently combines a pure and bold design execution with progressive technology that makes life easier. Clearly, this vehicle signals a very exciting future for the brand,” said Opel’s vice president of design, Mark Adams.
