    - Groundbreaking: Revolutionary electric car takes ECOBEST title
    - Strong leadership: COMPANYBEST for the successful development of the Opel Group
    - Competent: Expert jury consisting of 31 European journalists






    Rüsselsheim. Opel has been very successful at the 2016 AUTOBEST Awards. The Rüsselsheim-based carmaker took home trophies in two categories. The expert AUTOBEST jury, consisting of independent journalists from 31 European countries, voted the Ampera-e ECOBEST 2016. The revolutionary electric car with the exceptional range beat stiff competition by providing the “right answer for shaping the future of electro-mobility in Europe”. Furthermore, the jury recognized “Opel’s successful turnaround under the leadership of Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann”. The jury continued to state that Opel’s credo of “German precision meets sculptural artistry” can be applied to the models and the company alike. The result is that the Opel Group has been named COMPANYBEST 2016.

    Autobest is not the same as ECOTY. For the 2017 ECOTY award the vehicle has to be on sale by the end of 2016. Opel doesn't have any vehicles in the running this year.

    The Astra is COTY 2016, everything else 'new' at Opel are facelift versions. New Insignia could be a candidate for 2018.
