Four in a Row

The plug-in hybrid version of the Grandland X combines the power of a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and two electric motors – resulting in a system output of up to 300 hp. The WLTP-certified, 147 kW/200 hp four-cylinder engine meets the Euro 6d-TEMP standard and has been specially designed to meet the requirements of a hybrid vehicle. The two electric units each have an output of 80 kW/109 hp.

While the front electric motor transmits its power to the front wheels via an electrified eight-speed automatic transmission, the second electric motor and a differential are integrated in the rear axle. This second electric drive makes the Grandland X Hybrid4 an all-wheel drive with excellent traction.

Opel becomes electric: The new all-wheel drive plug-in hybrid version of the Grandland X is an important component of the PACE! strategy plan.

DRIVING MOdes

Fully electric, hybrid, AWD and sport – the Grandland X Hybrid4 is equipped for all requirements. In hybrid mode, the SUV automatically drives in the most efficient drive mode. For city driving, the driver can simply switch to electric mode – and the car continues to run without any emissions.

Selecting AWD mode activates the electrified rear axle for maximum traction on all kinds of roads.

The 13.2 kWh lithium-ion battery is installed under the rear seats to save space.

That’s how long it takes to fully charge the battery of the Grandland X Hybrid4 with a 7.4 kW wallbox. Charging time depends on the type of charger in use. In addition to the cable supplied with the vehicle for charging from a domestic plug socket, Opel will offer devices for fast charging at public stations and wallboxes at home.

As electricity is currently cheaper than petrol, the tank should not be constantly refilled, but rather the battery should be recharged regularly. Depending on local prices and distances covered, this can significantly lower energy bills.

ELECTRIC

The Opel Grandland X Hybrid4 can cover up to 50 kilometres in pure electric mode in the WLTP driving cycle (60 kilometres according to NEDC). Studies have shown that in Germany, this range covers around 80 percent of all daily journeys. In other words, these customers could potentially drive the Grandland X Hybrid4 with zero emissions all of the time.

The new Grandland X Hybrid4 belongs to the vanguard of Opel’s next-generation in electrified vehicles. And there is even more to come: within the next 20 months, Opel will launch the new Corsa, the new Zafira Life MPV, the new Vivaro LCV and the successor of the Mokka X – each of which will feature a fully battery electric version.
