Vauxhall has revealed the new Grandland GSe – a performance electrified version of the family crossover, to sit alongside the recently announced Astra GSe as part of Vauxhall’s new electrified performance sub-brand. 

The New Grandland GSe combines a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with two electric motors – one on each axle – for a combined power output of up to 295bhp. The plug-in hybrid powertrain makes the Grandland GSe permanent electric all-wheel-drive, with a 0-62mph time of 6.1 seconds, while the top speed is 146mph. 

The Grandland GSe also has a unique suspension set-up and steering calibration. It is fitted with firmer springs and dampers with KONI FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) technology.

The bold and pure exterior design is pimped with GSe styling cues: 19-inch alloy wheels inspired by the Manta GSe concept; a unique rear diffuser and a GSe emblem on the tailgate. As a further distinguishing feature, the Grandland GSe is optionally available with a black bonnet. 

Inside, new Alcantara®-trimmed front sports seats are said to provide additional comfort and support for sporty driving. 

The Grandland GSe Plug-in Hybrid will go on sale in the UK towards the start of 2023 with customer deliveries scheduled from Spring 2023. Prices and full specifications will be announced nearer the on-sale date.
