Dagel Premium Motor

Dagel Premium Motor or “DPM”, for its acronym, is a premium automobile brand that was created as a division of the European manufacturer Rigel in 1998. It is characterized by using an innovative design and a premium cut to all its models, which will want to rival in the European market with BMW, Audi and Mercedes, on the other hand, in the United States with brands as prestigious as Cadillac.

Origin of the company

In the mid-90s, the top and the president of Rigel Motor wanted to begin the development of future projects on vehicles with a more premium cut and that could be sold both in the old continent and in the new one. The Rigel company under its slogan “family cars at family prices” did not seem the best alternative, the conversion of Rigel into a higher category brand did not like managers and shareholders. Due to the above and after the union in 1996 with Performance, it was decided to create an investment project that would result in Dagel Premium Motor in 1998. The subsidiary where Rigel Motor will maintain majority control and more than 55% of the company’s shares, the rest will be divided into smaller companies in the automotive sector that want to have premium vehicles but do not have the resources or technology. In this way, a small group of automobile companies, added to the economic power of American investors, created Dagel Premium Motor based in Canada.

Mission and vision.

The company currently proposes a series of premium cut models at a contained price for the medium-high pocket of American and European inhabitants.

We want to become the leading company in high-end vehicles and have an international presence reaching audiences of all ages, ethnicities, genders, etc…

Current projects

Currently, Dagel has been developing several projects simultaneously for three years, which will see the light of day in the coming years. All these new cars will be of a premium or high-end cut and will complement the existing offer by the Spanish brand Rigel, but there will never be cannibalization of sales since they will be located in different areas of the same market, the automotive sector.

Dagel DX-6: the risky bet for the year 2000 to propose a vehicle with off-road capabilities, but that expresses all the sportiness and power to be able to compete against the BMW X5 or the Mercedes Ml. This project has started from the design and manufacture of a completely new and surprising chassis, high-performance Performance engines and luxury interiors.

At the same time, the arrival in Europe in the coming years of a supercar that competes against models and brands as classic as Lamborghini or Ferrari is being prepared.

Infrastructures and factories

Dagel Premium Motor will be integrated into the new group called Rigel group, this will bring together different brands and is currently made up of Rigel Motor, BlueStar Inc and Dagel Premium Motor.

Daguel will manufacture the models, which it will present in these years, in Ontario, Canada. The manufacturing will be in charge of the RMMC industries that are part of the group of minority shareholders of the Rigel group and specifically part of the shareholders of Dagel Premium Motor and BlueStar Inc. This group helped in the beginnings of the company BlueStar Inc and a large part of the Decisions will be made in Ontario, Canada.


A logical step since Rigel gained the experience and techpool for such adventures. Now that’s increasing the pressure on Primus, which at the end of the 90s focussed on their premium reputation.

It seemed inevitable that Dagel would be established as Rigel’s upmarket arm, and they’re off to a flying start by the look of things.

We wanted to create higher quality products, it is complicated since our cars have reasonable prices and are focused on a more everyday public. This challenge is very appealing and it will be very interesting to see models that compete in the same premium markets, greetings friend!

Thanks for the comment mate! We want to expand markets, we are considering several models, I hope the end result pleases the public.

New Trims, engines and colors

After several consecutive quarters, the DX6 has been able to consolidate itself as the premium branch of the Spanish brand Rigel, being able to reach a correct level of sales at a European level and especially in Spain. In the United States and Canada it begins its market, but with weaker sales.
Now the DX6 is updated with new engines and the expansion of its range, thus completing a wide variety for audiences with different budgets, but who all have something in common, the need to drive a premium vehicle with everything they need.

The great innovations focus on the new aesthetic distribution of finishes and moldings that will visually differentiate the versions from each other. The most basic will mount black plastic moldings, the intermediate and high finishes aluminum and chrome moldings, and finally, the most radical version will mount details in metallic black.

The intermediate ranges are maintained by creating a version of access to the range called “Base” with Rigel’s new generation 1.8 gasoline and diesel engines, which are below 200 horsepower. The commitment to a segment of the population that leaves the middle class and begins to settle in more comfortable areas of an upper-middle class is interesting.

For the upper level it is modified in the “Performance Line” finish that will be renamed “Performance Line Miralles” with a limited edition that improves all aspects of the vehicle while maintaining the engine that provides more than 300 horsepower.

Versions, Engines and Prices

Base: The new entry-level vehicle with a lower price will be available as a premium vehicle for the more affordable pockets.

Price: 22.569,27 €
