Opel is certainly not having the best of times, these days. However, it appears like the carmaker is thinking on a long term and has devised plans to seize back its market.

Fresh talk flying around signal a release of a new model from the Opel stables by late 2016 or early 2017.

The company has said that the upcoming model could be “technological spearhead” with hybrid and/or fuel-cell technology.

This almost cements earlier info that spoke of a fuel-cell vehicle that is expected around 2015.

Performance specifications and other configurations are limited. We hear the prototype in the making has been code named TOL (top of the line),  and is likely to be designed based on the long-wheelbase Epsilon II platform.

Opel is likely to aim at an annual output of 20,000 cars.

Let’s wait to hear more on that.
