Opel-Manta-GSe-Elektromod

Opel has unveiled its latest creation, the Manta GSe ElektroMOD. The Opel Manta GSe is a modernised and electrified variant of the company’s 1970s ‘Manta A’ sports coupe. The latest Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD maintains the classic style of the original model while adding a slew of technological features and an all-electric powertrain.

In place of the grille, the latest Manta GSe ElektroMOD features the brand’s Pixel Vizor. The Opel Pixel Vizor is equipped with an LED panel that shows text messages. A pair of LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights flank the LED screen on either end. At the rear of the ElektroMOD are three-dimensional LED tail lights.

The new Opel Manta GSe is finished in a bright neon yellow with a black bonnet. The 17-inch stylish and lightweight alloy wheels define the side profile.

The Manta GSe has two integrated displays on the inside, one for the optical instrument cluster and the other for the touchscreen infotainment system. A three-spoke steering wheel with a yellow marker at the 12 o’clock spot adds a touch of sportiness to the sedan.

A 31 kWh lithium-ion battery pack powers the new Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD, which is coupled with an electric motor that produces 147 BHP and 255 Nm. The Manta GSe, according to Opel, has a maximum range of 200 kilometres. A 9kW in-built charging unit is said to take about four hours to fully charge the electric powertrain.

The fascinating aspect is that the electric motor directs all of the power to the back wheels, resulting in a rear-wheel-drive electric vehicle. The electric powertrain is paired with a four-speed manual transmission, though the car can also be driven automatically in fourth gear.
