Retro-modern looks, electric, manual, RWD.
You might think that Opel got inspired by retro-modern styled Honda e and Ioniq 5 electric cars, which might be true, but according to the company, the inspiration came from the people who transform classic cars into restomods with modern tech and new design. The full name of this car is Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD. The term ‘ElektroMOD’ is, of course, a portmanteau of electric and restomod.
On the front fascia, the designers have applied the new Opel face with a gloss black front grille flanked by matrix LED headlights that first debuted with the Mokka e. On the side, the window shapes and even a little vent-like black insert on the C-pillar have been retained. The rear-end features a modern iteration of the circular taillights. Also, notice a Manta branding with a new Opel font.
