The incorporation of the Opel brand into Peugeot Citroen South Africa has taken place and PCSA has become the official distributor of Opel vehicles in South Africa from the 1st of January 2021.


Opel has a long and distinguished history in South Africa, with presence in the market since the 1930s. The brand is expected to continue growing from strength to strength owing to the solid foundation built in the 80-plus years here in South Africa. During this time Opel was one of the few international car brands to allow special edition models to be developed specifically for the South African market.


PCSA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Stellantis, who currently distribute Peugeot and Citroen vehicles. PCSA have been very clear in their approach to the Opel brand, assuring dealers and customers, that the impact to them should be minimal, with no immediate changes planned to the existing dealer network, customers can be assured that they will still have access to the same service points as they previously did.


Following this announcement comes the news that the all new 6th generation Opel Corsa will be available at Opel dealerships across South Africa from mid-January this year.
