Is the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer China bound?

GM China will launch a revised version of the GM Korea-built Opel Antara SUV at the Chongqing motor show later in June, signalling the relaunch of the German brand in the world's largest national market.

Opels have been sold in China for some years but both the model range and sales volumes have been small.

The existing Opel Insignia and Opel Astra are already available in the PRC but these are built there with Buick badging (Regal and Excelle, respectively). Reports in the Chinese media state that GM China will therefore launch only the wagon version of the Insignia, the Sports Tourer, as well as the Meriva, plus the new Zafira Tourer and Astra GTC.

The relaunch of Opel in China as an aspirational German brand means that GM will now have a range that stretches from its number one brand, Wuling, through the pricier but still mass-market Chevrolet and near-premium Buick, to Cadillac, plus Jiefang for light commercials and Baojun as a maker of low-cost Chevrolet-based small cars.
