Opel to discontinue 3 car models by the end of 2019

German carmaker Opel Group Gmbh, a unit of Peugeot SA's parent Groupe PSA, said Oct. 9 that it will discontinue the Opel Adam, Karl and Cascada models by the end of 2019.

The car brand said the move is part of the company's product offensive to meet customer demand and ensure compliance with Europe's new carbon emissions guidelines, which will come into effect in 2020.

Opel announced the change as it hinted at plans to introduce eight new or refreshed models from early 2019 to the end of 2020.

In 2019, the car brand will launch the new generation of its Corsa model and the successor to Opel's Vivaro. Opel said it will also launch additional variants and equipment versions of the Combo.

The company said the successor to its Opel Mokka X SUV model will follow in 2020.

Opel aims to have an electrified version of every Opel model by 2024.
