The new Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid4 will be priced from £35,590; it’s available to order now and will be in showrooms in January 2020.
Vauxhall’s first-ever plug-in hybrid, the new Grandland X Hybrid4 features a powertrain comprised of an electric drive system with two electric motors, all-wheel drive, a 13.2kWh lithium-ion battery and a 1.6T four-cylinder petrol engine (combined 300hp) that has been specially engineered for the hybrid application.
The Grandland X Hybrid4 emits 36g/km CO2, has a combined economy figure of 176.5mpg, and delivers an all-electric driving range up to 32 miles.
The new Grandland X Hybrid4 is available to order in four different trims. All models feature the same powertrain and emissions levels, with varying levels of on-board equipment and technology.
The Business Edition Nav Premium is available for £35,590, the SRi Nav is priced at £40,300, while the Elite Nav is priced at £42,200. Top of the range is the Ultimate Nav, which is available for £45,450.
Together, the Euro 6d-TEMP-compliant petrol engine and electric motors produce up to 300hp, and offer a combined fuel consumption of 176.5mpg, emitting just 36g/km CO2. The Grandland X Hybrid4 achieves 0-62 mph in just seven seconds.
The front electric motor is coupled to an electrified eight-speed automatic transmission, while the second motor and differential are integrated into the electrically-powered rear axle, providing all-wheel traction on demand.
The Grandland X Hybrid4 offers four driving modes – electric, hybrid, AWD and Sport. In pure electric mode, the car has a range of 32 miles (according to WLTP).
In hybrid mode, the car automatically selects the most efficient method of propulsion. When travelling at low speeds within cities, for example, the system switches to electric mode for zero-emission driving.
The Grandland X Hybrid4 comes with a 3.3kW on-board charger, with an optional 6.6kW version also available. Vauxhall will also offer wallboxes at home. With a 7.4kW wallbox, customers can fully charge the battery in less than two hours.
To make charging even more convenient, owners of the Grandland X Hybrid4 will benefit from more than 85,000 charging points across Europe, as part of Vauxhall’s Free2Move Services. This also includes a trip planner, which suggests the best routes based on the car’s remaining range and highlights the location of charging stations along the way. The Navi 5.0 IntelliLink infotainment system, available as standard, guides drivers to the selected charging station.
To further improve efficiency, the Grandland X Hybrid4 features a regenerative braking system, which can increase the electric range by up to 10 per cent.
The Grandland X Hybrid4 is a key part of Vauxhall’s commitment to electrifying its entire product portfolio by 2024. The all-new, fully electric Corsa-e is available to reserve now. This will be followed by the new Vivaro Life MPV, new Vivaro LCV and the successor to the Mokka X – all of which will feature a fully electric version.
