Vauxhall not part of Opel now? Didn't Stellantis gobble it up?

Apologies. Opel and Vauxhall now belong to Stellantis, so a possible Vauxhall badged Rocks E is on the cards.

Not new and no factory warranty I know, but just to point out for less money you could pick up a second hand low mileage C-Zero or Ion and have a 5 door 4 seater car with a top speed of 80 mph and range of 60 miles driven conservatively which is still very small and compact and arguably a better looker... :lol:

It's quite a practical car for its small size - with the back seats folded flat you can get an amazing amount of stuff in the back due to the high ceiling and large boot opening.

I did many a large dump run in mine with stuff packed most of the way to the ceiling. In the Ami you'd get maybe a few bags of groceries ?

Not sure how well a 6 foot 5 person would fit in a C-Zero to be fair - the ceiling is very high but the seat would probably have to go well back. But the Ami is likely to have the same problem! :lol:

Fitting nicely with the car its a very small bit of Greece, very soon to be an electric only eco Island thanks to our friends at Stellantis.

Nope :(

There's been nothing at all! They took a £250 reservation fee back in September 2021 and haven't said another word since! They've still not even confirmed UK pricing which leads me to think it's going to be a lot more expensive then initially suspected.

I was really enthusiastic about this back in 2021 and now life is moving on and my wife is looking to change her car, it's looking less and less likely that I'll be going for it. I'm holding tight until I know for sure though.
