Opel’s Variant of the Chevy Volt will be Built in the U.S.

In a recent interview published on the German magazine Automobilwoche, GM Europe’s president Carl-Peter Forster revealed that Opel’s first electric car that will be based on the Chevy Volt will be manufactured in the U.S. Forster also told Automobilwoche that European customers should expect to pay a substantial surcharge of €10,000 ($15,800) or more over a comparable Opel model with a conventional diesel or gasoline powertrain. Opel’s variant of the Volt that was previewed in concept form as the Flextreme (photo) at last year’s Frankfurt Show is due to arrive on European shores in 2012.
