Back to the Future … Opel Manta returns as electric sports car

The Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD harks back to the legendary Opel Manta of 1970 and simultaneously gives added impetus to the growing phenomenon of “restomods” – a recent development among automobile fans and collectors where icons like the Manta mix original and new technologies and design. The all-electric Manta GSe ElektroMOD with its fully digital cockpit is as sporty as an original Opel GSe.


With its sustainable, emissions-free electric drive, the Opel Manta now becomes immortal, independent of spares for engine and transmission or potential driving bans for older combustion engine cars. The transformation to ElektroMOD also shows how timeless the lines from 1970 are. What was sculptural and straightforward half a century ago still fits perfectly with the Opel design philosophy today. The Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD stands there boldly and clearly and confidently starts a new future: electric, emission-free – full of emotions.

Every Opel model will be electrified by 2024, and the customer already has the choice between plug-in hybrids such as the Grandland X and all-electric BEVs from the Corsa-e small car to the Zafira-e Life “lounge on wheels”.
