Yes except the first part is WAS. Yep on what theothertom said.
GM sold Opel (aka Vauxhall in the UK) to PSA Groupe.https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ ... 528166001/https://money.cnn.com/2018/07/24/invest ... index.htmlhttps://www.groupe-psa.com/en/brands-and-services/
has their brands.

I can remember when Opel was imported to the USA. Was really a "poor" car.
FWIW, Opel was HQed in Germany. At one point, the Opel Astra was imported to the US and sold as the Saturn Astra... a rather goofy car.
The Buick Cascada is another Opel car: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opel_Cascada
AFAIK, Opel Ampera-E was/is built at Orion Assembly, just like Bolt: https://media.gm.com/media/us/en/gm/com ... orion.html
(even though it's not listed).https://www.greencarreports.com/news/11 ... dent-of-gm
is the replacement for Bolt over at Opel, so they no longer have to buy them from an outside company, GM.
