Opel is announcing that they will build a Buick model for North America in the “second half of the decade”.
Automotive News reports that the announcement comes amid a $245 million euro investment for the Ruesselsheim, Germany plant that will start exporting to North America, and receive a new model. At the same time, Opel will stop plans to export to China, allowing the much stronger Buick brand to take the lead.
Neither the Opel Adam nor the Cascada are built at Ruesselsheim, which raises the question of what model Opel will build for Buick. Currently, the Insignia, aka our Buick Regal, is built at the site.
