The Opel Meriva Concept, a GM world premiere at the Geneva motorshow, was one of the highlights of our press conference and got a lot of people talking.
Thereís an array of patented innovations developed by GM/Opel engineers. The innovative FlexDoors are rear-hinged rear doors that swing open 90 degrees towards the back of the car. Itís something you have to see to really understand, so we videoed them in action.
At the same time, we asked Hans Demant, Opelís Managing Director and GM Europe Vice President in charge of engineering, Alain Visser, GM Europeís Chief Marketing Officer and designers Andrew Dyson and Kenjiro Tajima to tell us more about the innovation behind the concept.
