Opel Cascada Enters Production in Gliwice, Poland
Taking advantage of Opel's long tradition with mid-sized convertible models, the Cascada is a whole new brand of car that still evokes imagery of the old Bertone.
The first model to roll off the line at the Opel plant in Gliwice, Poland, was equipped with a new 1.6 turbo gasoline engine and will be on show in Geneva next month.
“Today is a really special day, not only for the Gliwice plant, but also for Opel. The Cascada is the next building block in our product offensive. Following the ADAM and the Mokka, with the Cascada we are now also reaching customers in segments where we have not yet been present,” says Steve Girsky, Opel Supervisory Board Chairman, GM Vice Chairman and President GM Europe.
“Gliwice is city rich in tradition in the Upper Silesia industrial area. Its importance for the Polish economy is immense. The fact that another Opel model will be produced here once again spotlights the good work the region and the plant itself deliver,” said Polish Deputy Prime Minister and guest of honor, Janusz Piechocinski.
