Opel has resurrected the Frontera nameplate in 2024, with the name making its 
comeback on an all-new SUV model. Opel will release images of the new Frontera 
along with more detailed information on the newcomer in the upcoming weeks. 
The new Frontera, which will be presented later this year, promising to be a fun car 
with clever functional features. It will also display a new rugged interpretation of 
Opel's design philosophy and be the first production car from the German brand to 
bear the new Opel Blitz emblem. The new Frontera will be available as a battery- 
electric vehicle from the very start. 
Opel CEO, Florian Huettl, said: "The name Frontera is ideally suited to our new, 
exciting SUV model. It will have a confident character and be positioned right in the 
core of the market."  
The new Opel Frontera will come with a high level of space and versatility and thus 
appeal to customers with an active lifestyle and families alike. 
The arrival of the battery-electric variant of the new Frontera, along with the launch 
of the all-electric version of the next-generation Grandland, also scheduled for this 
year, will mark an important milestone in the Rüsselsheim brand's transition to 
becoming a fully electric brand. Opel will then offer at least one battery-electric 
variant in each carline. 
The wide range of battery-electric Opel models today already extends from the Rocks 
Electric quadricycle, the Corsa Electric, the Mokka Electric, the Astra Electric, and 
the Astra Sports Tourer Electric, to the new Combo Electric and Zafira Electric 
people carriers. In addition, battery-electric versions of the entire commercial vehicle 
portfolio are already available today - including the new Combo Electric, the new 
Vivaro Electric, and the new Movano Electric.
