However, it seems that with the latest mechanical diesel and gasoline has been taken seriously that if the referents. For they have created from scratch a new family of diesel engines already old Isuzu blocks once forgetting.
In gasoline have done the same thing and its latest novelty is the small 1.0 litre cylinder Opel Astra riding. However, the signing of Ray wants to go more in propulsion systems and that is a great challenge. For that they have created a global system of propulsion Center which will develop propulsion systems that will move to the models of Opel and much of its parent company, General Motors.
This Center is has built in the city German of Rüsselsheim, place where also is the headquarters of Opel. Its extension is of 36,000 meters square and for its creation General Motors and Opel have invested 210 million of euros. This Centre is integrated in the global development of propulsion systems of General Motors global network. Inside, 800 new engineers, will research and develop future propulsion systems.
Thanks to this Center, Opel and General Motors may adapt their systems of propulsion to the needs of the market. It will develop mobility systems such as the power for the new Opel Ampera-e or Chevrolet Bolt. In addition, also be taken into account other types of propulsion as the pile of fuel or alternative fuels to the oil.
