Opel board member Thomas Sedran told the German media this week that the production of the new generation of the most awaited subcompact crossover Mokka will move from South Korea to the European plants. “Next Mokka will be available in Europe” – said Sedran. The current model of the crossover is made in Korea. According Sedran, the automaker is also considering the feasibility of transferring the assembly to Europe of the other models, but so far no decisions have been taken.

European sales of Opel Mokka began last fall, before the end of 2012 were sold 5313 units. Opinion on whether the transfer of production of Opel Mokka from Korea to Europe was voiced in November last year, the head of the trade union of Opel Wolfgang Schaefer-Klug claimed: “Mokka will load our factory in Spain. Originally a production of this car (Mokka) was not intended to Korea. ”
