In all secret has Opel developed a BEV, Battery Electric Vehicle. Together with Bosch, Mercedes and some German institutes, Opel have started the project called Meregio.
The three prototypes that where tested in Austria show no visual changes compared to a normal Meriva except for the missing exhaust pipe. But under the skin we find an electric engine and batteries. These cars where testing how much energy is needed while driving up the mountains and how much will be regenerated on the way down.
Our spies got a chance to make some photos while the cars were charged up to full power again at their garage.
