Opel Is Ending Exports To China, Will Likely Make An Adam For America

We're about to see a lot more Opel — kinda — in the U.S. and a lot less Opel in China. After years of unimpressive sales, GM is pulling Opel out of China.

Here's How GM Can Sell The Opel Adam In America

The Opel Adam is a huge deal for General Motors' most beleaguered brand. Opel has struggled hard lately, and the European subsidiary needs the little car to be a big hit.
