Frankfurt Motor Show 2013: Vauxhall shows Monza Concept

Published 10 September 2013

Vauxhall has shown off a new coupe concept at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The sleek, two-door Monza is underpinned by the powertrain from the Ampera, with a range extender keeping a battery charged and an electric motor providing drive to the wheels.

The engine chosen for the range extender is different from the Ampera, however – it’s an all-new 1.0 SIDI turbo, which is set to appear in various other Vauxhall production models soon. As well as the sleek styling, which is somewhere between sporty coupe and estate, there’s a new infotainment system.

The new system uses 18 LEDs to project information onto a continuous ‘screen’ across the dashboard. There’s no word on whether the Monza will make production but it’s unlikely given its radical styling. It’s possible, however, that some elements of the design and styling will make their way into future Vauxhall models in coming years.
