Opel will continue its ongoing export offensive by returning to the important Japanese market.
Starting next year, the brand with the Blitz logo will launch three models in a first step: the bestselling Corsa, which may be named differently in Japan, the multifunctional Combo Life and the Grandland X compact SUV. Further models will follow.
“The Japanese car market is one of the largest in the world. Opel enjoys an excellent reputation there as a German brand. Therefore, our return to Japan is a very important step to significantly increase our profitable exports – as we promised in the PACE! plan. Opel goes global – our comeback in Japan is further proof of this," said Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller.
