Adam Opel AG will end production of its Omega fullsize car at the company’s Russelshiem, Germany, plant as the facility gears up to produce the Vectra and the Signum, published reports say. Opel produces about 40,000 Omegas annually at Russelsheim. Reports indicate the auto maker may wait until 2005 before launching an Omega replacement. Production volumes for the Omega are expected to be absorbed by the Signum, as well as the Combi multi-purpose vehicle.
