Opel's electrified Manta is the EV of our wildest dreams

New age fun with a retro look and feel.


The Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD, an electrified coupe that takes its style cues from the original Manta Opel sold in the 1970s.


The estimated range in miles from the 31 kWh battery.

Between the LED headlamps is the “Pixel-Vizor,” an LED display that can communicate messages to passersby.

The rocket-booster-like 3D tail-lights are also LED.

The Manta logo has been reimagined as a QR code. Scanning it brings up the EV’s key specs.

“The Manta GSe impressively demonstrates the enthusiasm with which we build cars at Opel. It combines our great Opel tradition with today's commitment to emissions-free mobility for a very desirable, sustainable future.”

Michael Lohscheller, Opel CEO

Sadly, the electric Manta is a one-off concept for now, but with enough nudging on social media, perhaps Opel will consider putting it into production and making our EV dreams come true in the process.
