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.
