Orders open for front-wheel drive version of Vauxhall Grandland X plug-in hybrid

Date: 16 December 2019   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Vauxhall's Grandland X SUV is now available to order as a plug-in hybrid with front-wheel drive.

The new variant, badged Hybrid, follows on from the previously-launched four-wheel drive plug-in hybrid, badged Hybrid4.

Where the four-wheel drive model has a maximum output of 300hp, pairing a 1.6-litre petrol engine with two electric motors, the front-wheel drive variant produces 225hp, due to having only one electric motor alongside the same petrol engine.

Fitted with a 13.2kWh battery, the Hybrid is said to have an electric driving range of 34 miles on the WLTP cycle.

It comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and a choice of three driving modes - Electric, Hybrid and Sport - allowing drivers to prioritise efficiency or performance.

A 3.7kW on-board charger is standard, while a 7.4kW version is optional - Vauxhall says that with the latter, a full battery recharge is possible in less than two hours.

The Grandland X Hybrid is priced from £32,390. The first examples are due to arrive in showrooms in April.
