Vauxhall has revealed its new Grandland X Hybrid4 all-wheel drive (AWD) plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) will have CO2 emissions from 34g/km and offer 35 miles of zero emission driving.
It is Vauxhall’s first-ever plug-in hybrid and features a powertrain that 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.
Together, the Euro 6d-TEMP-compliant petrol engine and electric motors produce up to 300hp, and offer a combined fuel consumption of 204mpg (WLTP), emitting 34g/km CO2. The Grandland X Hybrid4 also achieves 0-60 mph in just 5.9 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 35 miles (according to WLTP). In hybrid mode, the car automatically selects the most efficient method of propulsion. When travelling at low speeds, for example, the system switches to electric mode for zero-emission driving.
It comes with a 3.7kW on-board charger, with an optional 7.4kW version also available. Vauxhall will also offer devices for fast charging at public stations, as well as wallboxes at home. With a 7.0kW wallbox, customers can fully charge the battery in less than two hours.
Arriving in showrooms in February, Vauxhall’s new Grandland X Hybrid4 is priced from £36,790 on-the-road.
It 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 £36,790 on-the-road and the SRi Nav is priced at £41,500, while the Elite Nav is priced at £43,400. Topping off the range is the Ultimate Nav, which is available for £46,650.
Vauxhall has also introduced an exclusive charging offer available Grandland X Hybrid (and Corsa-e) customers.
When opting for the brand’s new fully electric hatchback or hybrid SUV, customers will receive a free six-month membership to the Polar charging network.
With the free Polar subscription, drivers gain unlimited access to its 7,000 charge points, including more than 400 rapid charge points.
Most of the charging points are completely free to use. For others, the membership offer allows customers to avoid the service charge and only pay for the electricity consumed. Prices start from only 12p per kWh.
After the free six-month period, customers pay just £7.85 per month but, with no long-term contract or notice period, drivers are free to cancel at any point.
Any customers – private or company car drivers – can take advantage of the Vauxhall LEV charging offer.
The Grandland X Hybrid4 also features the new Vauxhall Connect telematics service. This includes Live Navigation with real-time traffic information, as well as the ability to check key vehicle data via an app.
