FRANKFURT (Reuters) – German carmaker Opel will start producing an electric version of its Vivaro van and a new electric Mokka X subcompact sport-utility vehicle in 2020, it said on Thursday.

The carmaker is also opening order books for a fully electric Opel Corsa from the first half of 2019 onwards, as well as a plug-in hybrid version of the Opel Grandland X, it said.

Opel and its sister brand Vauxhall are owned by French carmaker PSA Group <PEUP.PA>.
