Vauxhall Monza Concept revealed ahead of Frankfurt debut

Opel/Vauxhall has unveiled the Monza Concept ahead of its public debut in less than a month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Monza Concept is the first car to feature LED projection infotainment, while the power comes from an evolution of the Ampera’s range extended powertrain.

The four seat concept is 4.69 metres long and modelled after ocean waves lapping on the shore. Thanks to big gullwing doors the entry for front and rear-seat passengers has been made very easy

The height of the vehicle is just 1.31 metres and the whole cockpit structre is around 15 cm lower than in conventional vehicles, offering 500 litres of space in the luggage compartment.

The wide sculpted dashboard that sweeps from door to door is used as a single projection surface with a total of 18 LED projectors, creating a continuous, adaptable multi-functional display – the first car in the world to feature this.

The electric drive works together with a CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) range extender – a further development of the Ampera’s technology.

The range extender is based on the new three-cylinder 1.0 SIDI turbo and runs with natural gas instead of petrol.
