A car full of emotions - and now the legendary Opel Manta is even being transformed into an emission-free ElektroMOD with an ultra-modern face. Under the hood, which is typically black, the four-cylinder gasoline engine gives way to a powerful electric motor. The "e" in GSe now stands for electrification instead of injection. The classically beautiful, neon yellow body also has a radiant smile - thanks to the latest LED technology. The original Manta with its geometric arrangement of headlights, radiator grille and flash provided the inspiration for the new Opel face, the Vizor that has meanwhile been implemented at Mokka and Crossland. Now the Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD itself carries this design in its most innovative implementation - the expressive Pixel-Vizor.
Manta GSe ElektroMOD
The Opel Pixel-Vizor spans the entire width of the vehicle, protects it like a visor in front of the neo (n) classic and ignites digital fireworks. The Manta GSe can communicate with its environment over the entire surface. "My German heart has been ELEKTRified", runs as writing across the new front. "I'm on a zero e-mission. I am an ElektroMOD ”, the GSe explains his mission himself and in the next moment shows the silhouette of a manta ray gliding over the pixel vizor.
The Opel designers had fun with the legendary Manta logo and designed it in the form of a QR code. Next, the unmistakable trademark of the Rüsselsheim-based manufacturer shines in the center, and then two flashes of lightning flash from the circle up to the stylish LED daytime running lights of the Vizor. Simply electrifying. Real Opel.

“The Manta GSe ElektroMOD is the work of passionate designers, 3D modelers, engineers, technicians, mechanics, product and brand experts. All Opel people through and through, who love cars and have fun developing new things. With the Manta GSe we are building a bridge from the great Opel tradition to a sustainable future that is worth striving for. This mixture of zeitgeist from then and now is absolutely fascinating, ”explains Pierre-Olivier Garcia, Opel Global Brand Design Manager, on behalf of the Manta GSe team.
The Manta GSe ElektroMOD is reminiscent of the Opel Manta A from 1970. At the same time, the car reflects the fascination of a growing fan base who transforms classics like the Manta into so-called RestoMods with modern technologies and a new design. The purely battery-electric Manta GSe ElektroMOD with its fully digital cockpit is sporty like a real Opel GSe and proudly bears its ambitions in its name. MOD stands for change, for technical and stylistic MODIFICATIONS as well as a MODERN sustainable lifestyle.
last work is in full swing
Changes that our mobile society experiences every day. Changes towards sustainable solutions, which also move the young Opel development team. The parents of the Manta GSe started their “Dream Car” project on their own initiative. After a lot of brainstorming, the plan was in place; and in the Opel Classic warehouse there was a matching Manta A just waiting to be kissed awake. From now on everyone grabbed the pure autopassion. So much enthusiasm immediately thrilled the Car Guys in the Opel management - and the idea of an extra-cool ElektroMOD became reality. The new Opel Manta GSe ElektroMOD is currently receiving its finishing touches in Rüsselsheim. On May 19, 2021, the neoclassic will be presented in all of its exciting details.
