Concept A is a compact hatchback with five doors which can be converted from a four-seater to a load lugger. Powered by a 1.0-litre dual fuel petrol and compressed natural gas engine it pumps out 86bhp in petrol mode and 88bhp in CNG mode and it has a 0-62mph time of 11 seconds with gas and 11.5 second with petrol. Capable of clocking up 125 miles on gas, a further 264 miles can be clocked up on petrol.
Vauxhall chairman and managing director Nick Reilly said Concept A was not the sub-Corsa-sized car on which Vauxhall was collaborating with Suzuki although he hoped work would result in a new micro-car. However, it is believed some of the styling cues could find their way into the new Corsa due in 2001.
