Opel has announced some breaking numbers regarding its recently premiered next-generation Opel Meriva mini MPV, which already topped more than 30,000 orders throughout Europe, before its market launch in Germany on June 12.

Alain Visser, Vice President Sales, Marketing & Aftersales Opel/Vauxhall shared: "We have never had such an impressive response to a vehicle in this segment. This is shown not only by the large number of orders, but also by the first analyses of the customer and media response. The new Meriva's design and its innovative concept obviously satisfy the tastes of customers."

For 2010, Opel plans to sell approximately 50,000 Merivas, and in 2011, the first full sales year of the innovative mini MPV, the German brand expects sales of up to 130,000 examples.

Engineered with smart design and remarkably high degree of functionality, the new Meriva spotlights FlexDoors, ergonomic front seats, a FlexSpace rear seat system and integrated FlexFix bicycle carrier.

The car boasts a starting price of 15,900 Euro in Germany and its engines range is fully in compliance with the strict Euro 5 emissions standards.
