Electrified new Vauxhall Grandland makes debut

This is the new and improved Vauxhall Grandland, coming to you later this year with a choice of electric, plug-in hybrid and mild-hybrid powertrains.

The Grandland is the biggest SUV in Vauxhall’s line-up, sitting ahead of the Crossland, and has been a hit with families looking for affordable transport.

At the moment it’s available to lease with either a petrol, diesel or plug-in hybrid engine.

But all that’s about to change when the new Grandland joins the range in July, as it’ll be up for grabs as the full-EV ‘Grandland Electric’, as well as a plug-in hybrid and 48 volt mild-hybrid.

The Grandland Electric will sit on parent company Stellantis’ ‘STLA Medium platform’, the same underpinnings you’ll find in the new Peugeot E-3008.

Vauxhall is promising a range of up to 435 miles, thanks to a 98kWh battery, as well as rapid charging abilities that can take the battery from 10-80% in around 26 minutes.

The plug-in hybrid Grandland will now offer up to 53 miles of range using electricity alone - up from the existing 39 miles.

Meanwhile the mild-hybrid Grandland will make use of a 1.2-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine and 28hp electric motor which are paired with a new six-speed dual clutch transmission.

Overall, the Grandland has grown compared with the current model - being 17cm longer - which means there’s more legroom for rear passengers. There’s new styling, too, with a much sharper front face and illuminated badge, as well as 20-inch alloys.

The boot size has increased at 550 litres - an increase of 36 litres over the outgoing model.

Inside the cabin, lease customers can enjoy a 16-inch central display, comfort seats, an abundance of stowage space, and a head-up display.

There’s a bunch of safety kit fitted as standard, too, including auto cruise control, traffic sign recognition and intelligent speed adaptation with crash braking. Lane change assist is there as an option.

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “The All-New Grandland is a milestone for Vauxhall. With it, every Vauxhall model will be available with the choice of a fully electric powertrain – a decade ahead of UK Government requirements. This is a big step in our electric offensive.”
