General Motors (GM) wants to build a compact off -road vehicle in Antwerp, according to information from the "Automobilwoche", which, like the twins, is to be sold as Chevrolet and Opel, like the twins Antara and Captiva.

Opel works council Klaus Franz said in Antwerp "a small SUV was built below the Antara," reported the industry newspaper on Sunday. GM guaranteed an annual capacity of 120,000 cars that were distributed to an Opel and a Chevrolet variant. The car maker Opel in Russelsheim did not take a position on this.
The Opel mother Group GM had announced about two weeks ago that by the end of the year, almost a third of the 4500 jobs in Antwerp would be eliminated in Antwerp. "The 1400 jobs are dismantled socially by compensation," said a GM spokesman. There should be no layoffs. At the same time, the 2010 plant will be busy with two new models. At the end of April, Antwerp was left empty-handed when deciding on the production of the new Astra model, so that the closure threatened. The new Astra is being built in Bochum, among others.
Base Opel Corsa
According to the “Automobilwoche”, the new model is to be a prolonged platform of the Corsa. A front drive version could be derived from this as well as an all -wheel drive model.
