Arriving in showrooms in January, Vauxhall’s new Grandland X Hybrid4 is available to order now, priced from £35,590 on-the-road and bringing with it significant cost benefits for business drivers.
As Vauxhall’s first-ever plug-in hybrid, the new Grandland X Hybrid4 features state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid technology. The powertrain comprises an electric drive system with two electric motors, all-wheel drive, a 13.2kWh lithium-ion battery and a 1.6T four-cylinder petrol engine (combined 300hp) that has been specially engineered for the hybrid application.
The new Grandland X Hybrid4 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 £35,590 on-the-road, and brings with it 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.
Clean and efficient driving
Together, the Euro 6d-TEMP-compliant petrol engine and electric motors produce up to 300hp, and offer a combined fuel consumption (preliminary WLTP/NEDC) of 176.5mpg, emitting just 36g/km CO2. The Grandland X Hybrid4 achieves 0-62 mph in just seven 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 32 miles (according to WLTP). 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.
Fast, easy and convenient charging
The Grandland X Hybrid4 comes with a 3.3kW on-board charger, with an optional 6.6kW version also available. Vauxhall will also offer devices for fast charging at public stations, as well as wallboxes at home. With a 7.4kW wallbox, customers can fully charge the battery in less than two hours.
To make charging even more convenient, owners of the Grandland X Hybrid4 will benefit from 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.
Ultimate driving efficiency and class-leading equipment
To further improve efficiency, the Grandland X Hybrid4 features a regenerative braking system, which can increase the electric range by up to 10 per cent.
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. Direct connection with roadside assistance provides the driver and passengers with additional peace-of-mind. Help can be reached within seconds by pressing the red button on the centre console. If the seatbelt tensioners or the airbags are deployed, the emergency call is activated automatically.
The Grandland X Hybrid4 is a key part of Vauxhall’s commitment to electrifying its entire product portfolio by 2024. The all-new, fully electric Corsa-e is available to reserve now. 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.
