Founded in 1857 as a pump and marine engine manufacturer, Vauxhall is now known as one of the oldest vehicle manufacturers in the UK. Vauxhall's wide range of cars offers something for everyone, from small city cars like the Corsa to popular hatchbacks like the Astra.
Vauxhall built its first car in 1903, and was acquired by General Motors in 1925. Today Vauxhall’s range is almost identical to Opel, the German subsidiary of General Motors.
A high number of Vauxhall vehicles are built in Russelsheim, Germany, as well as in Spain and Poland. Up to 80% of Vauxhall cars made in the UK are exported, mostly under the Opel brand name.
