Vauxhall is continuing its journey towards electrification with the new Grandland X all-wheel drive (AWD) plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).
The Grandland X Hybrid4 is Vauxhall’s first-ever plug-in hybrid and features state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid technology. The new Grandland X Hybrid4 offers an impressive 4 driving modes:
The new Grandland X has a strong range of 30 miles in its electric mode. Additionally, when in hybrid mode, the car can automatically select the most efficient mode of driving. A great example of this would be when travelling at low speeds within cities, the system will instinctively switch to electric mode for zero-emission driving.
The car’s powertrain comprises a 200hp, 1.6-litre turbocharged direct injection four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric drive system with two electric motors (combined output 109hp), all-wheel drive and a 13.2kWh lithium-ion battery. Combined, the petrol engine and electric motors produce up to 300hp and offer a combined fuel consumption (preliminary WLTP/NEDCof 128mpg, emitting just 49g/km CO2. The petrol engine is Euro 6d-TEMP-compliant and has been specifically engineered for the hybrid powertrain. 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.
Fast, easy and convenient charging
The new Grandland X Hybrid4 provides users with an easy and practical way to ensure that their vehicle is always charged and ready to go. It comes with a 3.3kW on-board charger, with an optional 6.6kW version also available. Devices that will ensure fast charging at public stations will also be made available for the new Grandland X.
Additionally, the Grandland X will come with a 7.4kW wallbox which means that customers can fully charge the battery in less than two hours. Users will benefit from more than 85,000 charging points across Europe which will be part of Vauxhall’s Free2Move services. Vauxhall will offer a trip planner, which suggests the best routes based on the car’s remaining range and highlights the location of the charging systems on a journey. The Navi 5.0 IntelliLink infotainment system (which is available as standard!) guides drivers to the selected charging station.
Ultimate driving efficiency and class-leading equipment
Vauxhall are continuing to excel in their reputation for class-leading on-board technology, with the Grandland X Hybrid4 featuring the new Vauxhall Connect telematics service. The telematics services include:
- Live navigation with real-time traffic information
- The ability to check key vehicle data via an app.
- Direct connection with roadside assistance (a red button is featured on the centre console).
The Grandland X Hybrid4 reinforces Vauxhall’s dedication to electrifying its entire product portfolio by 2024. Late in 2019, the fully battery electric version of the next-generation Corsa will go on sale. This will then 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.
