Introducing Vauxhall’s first-ever plug-in hybrid in their journey towards electrification, with the aim of electrifying their entire product portfolio by 2024.
Featuring state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid technology, the Grandland X Hybrid4 has a 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric drive system with two electric motors, producing up to 300hp combined. The Euro 6d-TEMP-compliant petrol engine has been specially designed for the hybrid powertrain.
The all-wheel drive system’s front electric motor is paired with 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.
There are four driving modes including electric, hybrid, AWD and Sport. In hybrid mode, the car automatically selects the most efficient mode. With an electric range of 30 miles, this benefits from a regenerative braking system, which can increase electric range by up to 10%. The combined fuel consumption is 128mpg emitting 49g/lm CO2.
The Grandland X Hybrid4 comes with a 3.3kW on-board charger with an optional 6.6kW version available. Vauxhall will also offer fast charging devices to use in public stations as well as wallboxes at home. A 7.4kW wallbox will fully charge the vehicle in under two hours.
Vauxhall's Free2Move Service will benefit Grandland X Hybrid4 customers. This includes over 85,000 charging points across Europe and a trip planner which highlights charging points on route based on remaining range.
Navi 5.0 IntelliLink infotainment system is available as standard. Features include Vauxhall’s Connect telematics service, Live Navigation with real-time traffic information, direct connection with roadside assistance, and you can check vehicle data via an app. Help is reached within seconds by pressing red button on centre console and an emergency call is activated if seatbelt tensioners or airbags are deployed.
