In the second half of the 20th century, a movement began to emerge aimed at improving the environmental situation on the planet and Opel was among the first to direct its efforts
to the development of an eco-car that uses electricity. The car was promising.

The carmaker took the next step on the path of environmental development in 1992. The first hybrid Opel Twin was launched. A feature of the hybrid was the use of an electric
motor as the main one.

single charge, and when using the internal combustion engine, the mileage reached 500 kilometers.
