Vauxhall/Opel produces 750,000th Insignia

General Motors has produced its 750,000th Insignia at its Russelsheim, Germany, factory.

Vauxhall has sold over 210,000 sold in the UK since its launch in 2008, making it the biggest market in the world for this model.  Sales were up ten per cent last year according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

“This is a special day for the entire team,” said Axel Scheiben, plant manager at Rüsselsheim. “We have every reason to be proud of the fact that we have already produced our successful Insignia model 750,000 times. Our team does an outstanding job day in, day out, manufacturing highly complex vehicles in top quality.”

The milestone vehicle was an Insignia VXR Sports Tourer in Arden Blue.
