Today, Vauxhall has stopped selling its medium sized saloon car, the Insignia. For the time being, Vauxhall has no plans to replace it soon, but with a long term future of being replaced with a fully electric version in 2026.
The latest Insignia was only just facelifted two years ago and the company has said that it’ll be fulfilling any new orders, but for now the Insignia won’t be replaced. Over in the rest of Europe, the Insignia is sold as an Opel – this will remain on sale and is still being produced.
“In line with UK market trends, and a focus on our move to electrification, Vauxhall has decided to close customer ordering for the Vauxhall Insignia model with immediate effect. Production of the Vauxhall Insignia will continue until the Autumn after all existing orders have been fulfilled. Ordering and production of its sister model, the Opel Insignia, continues unaffected in markets outside the UK. New electrified models will enter the Vauxhall line-up in due course as we move to our commitment to be a solely electric brand from 2028.”
As of today, the Insignia has been removed from the official Vauxhall website and follows the trend of the Ford Mondeo, both of which are similar in size. The UK market has been leaning towards SUVs and crossovers which has pretty much killed off these two cars.
