2021 Opel Astra to be built in Rüsselsheim, will offer electrified model

Opel has announced the next-generation Astra small car will be built at its Rüsselsheim facility in Germany from 2021, also confirming an electrified variant. Currently, the Astra is assembled at Ellesmere Port in the UK, and Gliwice in Poland – the former supplying Australia’s now-axed Holden Astra Sportwagon, and the latter the source of the Holden Astra hatchback which remains on sale.

2019 Opel Grandland X Hybrid4 revealed

Opel and Vauxhall have revealed their first-ever mainstream plug-in hybrid, the Grandland X Hybrid4. Shown here in Vauxhall guise, the crossover PHEV is essentially a re-skinned version of the related Peugeot 3008 GT Hybrid4. That means there's a 200hp (149kW) 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine hooked up to a pair of electric motors (109hp/81kW combined) and a 13.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack. All up the company claims a system power output of 300hp, equivalent to 224kW.

PSA to cut 240 jobs at Vauxhall factory

The PSA Group has announced another round of job cuts, this time at Vauxhall's Ellesmere Port facility in northwest England. As reported by industry journal Automotive News Europe, it's the third round of cuts for the former GM-owned British brand, after it announced 400 axings at the site in October last year, and a further 250 in January – at the time of the first announcement, there were around 1900 people employed at the Ellesmere factory.
