The brand with the Şimşek logo is preparing to add the all-electric version of the 2022 Golden Steering Wheel Award-winning Astra to its decades-old success story. Continuing to realize its plans to become an all-electric brand in Europe, Opel continues on its way with the fully electric version of Astra after Mokka and Corsa. The Astra, which is full of historical achievements and firsts, will go into mass production for the first time with its new generation.

In addition to highly efficient internal combustion engines, the Astra and Astra Sports Tourer are also available in electric rechargeable versions, including the top of the line Astra GSe. The battery-electric Astra-e, which can be ordered from the spring of 2023, is aimed to be put on sale in Turkey from the second half of 2023.
“We are continuing our move towards electrification without slowing down”
“The Astra-e and Astra Sports Tourer-e are true pioneers. With the new battery-electric versions of the five-door hatchback and station wagon body types, users can enjoy a comfortable, but more importantly, emission-free drive suitable for daily use. This is exactly what we mean by 'Greenovation' in transportation”, Opel CEO Florian Huettl said, “At the same time, we continue our move to switch to electric without slowing down. "The new Opel Astra-e is an important milestone for us on the path to becoming an all-electric brand in Europe."
