Opel has launched a new generation Opel Combo compact van, including a compressed natural gas version. It is also available as a car-van, with five or seven seats and a paneled or glazed body. The CNG version, which runs on low-cost and environmentally-friendly natural gas, delivers 88 kW/120 hp. It comes with 6-speed manual transmission.
With up to 3,800 liters of cargo space in short wheelbase form (with seat folded down) and 4,600 liters with the longer wheelbase, the Combo offers the largest load volume in both classes. Its low 54.4 cm loading height and spectrum of possible payloads up to one ton are described as best-in-class values.
The new Opel Combo can by ordered as of autumn. The vehicle is based on the Doblò van (voted ‘International Van of the Year 2011’) from Opel’s cooperation partner Fiat and will reinforce Opel’s growing presence in the commercial vehicle segment.
