General Motors Europe believes it can sell up to 60,000 units annually of its Opel Antara medium SUV.
GM Europe President Carl-Peter Forster said he feels the demand level is right for GM to meet that goal.
"We are very flexible with our figures, but we feel 60,000 units is the right number per year," Forester said. "It's a large segment with a lot of players. But we feel there is room for us in that segment."
The Antara succeeds the Frontera, which GM stopped building in 2004. The Antara goes on sale next month.
Forster also said GM has taken 73,300 orders for its new Corsa small car.
"That is our highest presale in a long time at GM," Forester said.
Corsa deliveries start this week.
