THE Opel has made it known for some time that is preparing the new Grandland. In fact, in her earlier announcement, she had placed her start of production in the 2nd half of 2024.
This means that the his presentation is not long and that's why testing is in full swing. Our partners they identified two prototypes in the snowy regions of Scandinavia and found that it is about different versions.
Based on her commitment that by 2028 it will have become an all-electric brand in Europe, it was a given that the C-SUV will get a purely electric version, which will be based on STLA Medium platform by Stellantisjust like the new Peugeot 3008 introduced last September.
The electric version with the “separate” rims
However, just as with the French model, it won't just be electric and the biggest proof is this particular photo package. The an originalwith his license plate ending in E (s.s. Electric), is the purely electric.
The mask is completely closed and that's why it is fully camouflaged. Plus, on the side the rims are specially designed and they look like his electric E-3008 – if not they are exactly the same – to her advantage autonomy.
On the other hand, the another originalwith his license plate not have the letter E in the end, not only has “conventional” design rimsas you can see from the photos, but camouflage leaves one spot of the mask openabove the sign, for her needs cooling of the heat engine.
Our partners point out that this is about PHEV version – and not purely thermal – giving “continuity” to plug-in hybrid variant of the existing model. Furthermore, at the presentation of the Peugeot E-3008, Stellantis had announced that “it will also have hybrid powertrains”it's only natural that the same applies to Grandland.
Since EVs they will use the same platformwe expect Opel's new C-SUV to have front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions. As for the powertrainsofficially there is nothing, but we can expect something similar to the French model, which you can see by pressing HERE.
The new Opel Grandland will be presented this yearmaybe even within it first half of 2024.
