Production begins on German Holden

The first of Holden’s new European line-up has begun production.

The first Holden Insignia VXR rolled off Opel’s production line in Rüsselsheim, Germany.

The model will be one of four new European vehicles to join the Holden range in the second quarter of 2015, with the Astra VXR, Astra GTC and Cascada convertible completing the line-up.

Kristian Aquilina, Holden New Zealand managing director, says the Holden brand and Opel product align well.

“These three European sourced cars, Astra, Cascada and Insignia are renowned for their performance credentials and premium execution,” says Aquilina. “This makes them the perfect addition to the Holden range as we continue to offer more choice for our customers.”

“I’m sure we will be able to attract new customers to the Holden brand with these stunning niche vehicles and look forward to introducing them to our line up.”

“We will continue to offer Kiwi’s the best possible product we can and sourced from GM’s global operations. Opel’s quality and commitment to performance aligns perfectly with our own heritage and brand.”
