Vauxhall Grandland X plug-in hybrid prices and CO2 announced

Vauxhall Grandland X

Vauxhall has announced the Grandland X Hybrid4, its first plug-in hybrid SUV, will cost from £35,590 (OTR).

The new model has CO2 emissions of 37g/km and a zero-emission range of 32 miles.

In entry-level Business Edition Nav Premium it offers best-in-class benefit-in-kind. This equates to a saving of £145 per month over a Grandland X Elite Nav 1.5 Turbo D and £49 over the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV over 48 months.

The SRi Nav is priced at £40,300, while the Elite Nav is priced at £42,200. Topping off the range is the Ultimate Nav, which is available for £45,450.

It uses a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and two electric motors. Total power output is 300PS and the car has all-wheel-drive.

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.

Vauxhall says the Grandland X Hybrid4 is capable of achieving average fuel consumption of 176.5mpg.

Four driving modes are offered – electric, hybrid, AWD and Sport. 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 car features a 3.3kW on-board charger, with an optional 6.6kW version available. With a 7.4kW charging point, the car can be fully charged in less than two hours.

Drivers will have access to 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.

The Grandland X Hybrid4 features the new Vauxhall Connect telematics service, which includes Live Navigation with real-time traffic information, as well as the ability to check key vehicle data via an app.

Vauxhall is dedicated to electrifying its entire product portfolio by 2024. Later this year, the fully battery electric version of the next-generation Corsa will go on sale. 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.

    Good luck to all the scared of conventional Diesel engines manufacturers The new conventional Diesel engine is not going to harm the environment and can’t believe the so called intellectual bosses who run these companies are running scared.The scare mongering is as bad as brexit and MP’s must be loving this distraction of the sold called nasty engines damaging the environment to take the limelight of there inadequate handling of Europe. One of the main problems with engines is the lack of servicing requirements like everything else they need looking after.
