Astra to go electric in 2014

The new Opel Astra will have an electric version that will debut no earlier than 2014.
The Astra electric will utilise Voltec technology, the same on the Chevrolet Volt and the Opel Ampera.
The technology is the key feature, as further versions of the Volt and Ampera are not planned and Voltec can easily migrate to other models.

The new five door Astra will appear at the Frankfurt show this year, while the Sports Tourer family will debut next year.
The three door GTC version will also emerge in 2010, while the OPC will come out in 2011.
