Opel has revealed plans to introduce a new convertible in 2013. The drop top will be part of the company's 11 billion Euro investment plan which was announced publically last year and also includes the new Zafria and Ampera EV. The new vehicle will be based on General Motor's compact vehicle architecture, which forms the basis for the current Astra hatchback, Astra SportsTouer and the upcoming Astra GTC, as well as the Chevy Cruze and Orlando.
There's no name as of yet for the convertible, but it will most likely be called something along the lines of Astra Convertible. The vehicle will enter production in 2013 at Opel's Gilwice plant in Poland. It's still unclear if the convertible will retain the retractable hardtop or switch to a soft top to rival the new Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet.
