New Opel Grandland X Hybrid4 Has 300 Horses, Can Cover 52km In Battery Mode

The Grandland X Hybrid4 is a plug-in hybrid crossover from Opel/Vauxhall that features all-wheel drive, a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-pot, a 13.2 kWh lithium-ion battery and two electric motors (one on each axle).

If you’ve been waiting for a chance to catch it live and in public, the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show is your first chance to do so, where it stars alongside the automaker’s most fuel efficient Astra ever, as well as the latest Corsa supermini.

Its total system output is an impressive 296 HP (300 PS), with 197 HP (200 PS) coming straight from the internal combustion engine. One of the two electric motors (the front axle one) is coupled directly to an eight-speed transmission, while the second motor is integrated into the electrically-powered rear axle along with the inverter and differential.

On paper, the Grandland X Hybrid4 can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 7 seconds, while its pure electric mode can keep it going for some 32 miles (52 km). Meanwhile, the driver can choose between the following four modes while on the go: Electric, Hybrid, AWD, Sport.

Regenerative braking is also available, increasing the plug-in hybrid crossover’s range by up to 10%. There’s even a “Regeneration on Demand” setting, allowing you to drive the vehicle using mostly the throttle.

As for fuel economy, the automaker claims an average of 147 mpg U.S. (176.5 mpg UK / 1.6 l / 100km) when using the car in combination with the battery, while CO2 emissions are rated at 36 g/km.

Buyers can opt for 3.3 kW or 6.6 kW on-board chargers, or a 7.4 kW wallbox, the latter being capable of recharging the German crossover in under two hours.

    Impressive inside and out. Thankfully it has an integrated nav screen design center stack dash.

      Nah, the dashboard looks so antiquated, like a car from the previous decade.

    It would be nice if they’d offer the hybrid powertrain in the lower trims too.
