German automaker Opel is preparing to start manufacturing a compact car for French parent PSA at its main Ruesselsheim plant from mid-2021 onwards, German business daily Handelsblatt reported, and mentioned company sources for their information.

The car will be based on PSA’s EMP2 vehicle platform, the paper reported, saying the move could be officially declared in the coming days.

Production at Ruesselsheim, where Opel is manufacturing the Insignia model, is halted at this moment because of the coronavirus pandemic. The next generation of Opel’s Astra model will be also constructed there.

Asked about the report, an Opel spokesman stated in a written response: “We will shortly give detailed information on investments at the Ruesselsheim site and a new vehicle allocation. This is intended at focusing on vehicle production with a higher volume.”
