Opel/Vauxhall, a General Motors subsidiary, declares that new powertrains will reduce its average CO2 emissions by 27 percent before 2020 is over, thus helping the carmaker pass the ever tougher EU emissions regulations.
With 13 new engines here or on the way, Opel will give new life to about 80 percent of its engines between 2012 and 2016. Also, new transmissions will be added. The renewal process starts this year with a 1.6 liter gasoline and diesel engines opening the road, as well as new 5.6 and 8-speed gearboxes.

Mike Ableson, Opel's board member responsible for engineering, stated that “Europe will continue be the place that pushes the leading edge of CO2 technology. We intend to stay at that leading edge.”
Opel failed to provide the current fleet’s total CO2 figures, but numbers coming from market researcher JATO Dynamics indicates the 2012 average fleet emissions levels were around 132.8 grams per kilometer. If we add the 27 percent desired reduction that would mean an average of 97g/km. That is the target set for 2020, while 2015 should see 130g/km.
GM announced this April that it will invest 4 billion euro in its European subsidiary by 2016 in an effort to help the Opel launch 23 new models and the new engines.

The 1.0 liter 3 cylinder gasoline turbo engine is the smallest engine to appear, and it will roll in the Adam minicar when it launches next year. The largest unit will be a 1.
liter 4 cylinder unit and a 1.4 liter turbo will hold the most power. As for the actual output numbers we will have to wait until the company decides to disclose them.

The engines will be built in Szentgotthard, Hungary, and it their creation date from GM's partner, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp., was used.
Opel will likewise produce 3 versions of its new 1.6 liter diesel at the same plant. Expect it on the Zafira Tourer minivan next month. Overall, the new range of 1.6 liter diesels will replace the 1.7 liter range and 2.0 liter engines used in some Opel models, but not all of them. Furthermore, 2 new 1.6 liter turbocharged gasoline engines rated at 170 and 200 horses will be made parallel to the diesel line in the Szentgotthard plant.
Of course, the current 2.0 liter engines will also receive an overhaul in the form of one gasoline engine and two diesels.

According to Automotive News Europe sources within Opel, the 1.6 liter gasoline and diesel units might be hybridized. However, that would contradict some engineers that previously stated that bringing electricity into the game is not required to reach the 95g/km threshold set for2020.
Another announcement made by Opel referred to the new transmissions, which will include an 8 speed automatic gearbox that can be mounted on gasoline as well as diesel units. The carmaker said the 8 speed box has 3.6 percent improved fuel consumption than the 6 speed automatic transmission currently utilized on the Insignia range. When the new transmission will arrive is still unknown.
