Last month, the latest copies of the compact Karl and Adam hatchbacks were released, as well as the Opel Mokka X crossover, a restyled version of the Mokka.

Opel continues to reform its model line, deliberately getting rid of the once popular cars that are currently no longer in demand from buyers. On the eve it became known that in March the company last put three of its models on the conveyor at once – the compact Adam and Karl hatchbacks, as well as the Opel Mokka X crossover.

Recall the production of subcompact Adam hetchev engaged in the German factory brand. This model received the same platform as the Opel Corsa, however, it did not reach the sales volume of its co-platform. This neat citycar was sold five times worse. For comparison, last year Opel Adam acquired only 42 thousand people, while 216 thousand buyers stopped their choice on Corsa.

Opel Karl was based on the same platform as the Chevrolet Spark. That is why this model was registered at the General Motors South Korean plant. In the 2018th, this urban hatchback sold in the amount of 48,000 units. This was not enough to save space in the Opel model range.

It is known that Opel Karl will continue to exist under the name “VinFast Fadil”: GM sold the rights to this hatchback to the young Vietnamese company VinFast.

 Production Opel Mokka X engaged in the factories of the brand in Spain and South Korea. Unlike the first two models, the demand for these crossovers was quite high, but gradually fans of the brand began to lose interest in this SUV. It should be noted that the company still took into account the fashion for crossovers – the second-generation Mokka will definitely enter the market.

Recall earlier it became known that Ford is going to stop mass production of family models C-Max and Grand C-Max.
