[YesAuto News] Recently, according to foreign media reports, in order to obtain better efficiency, Opel Grandland X will launch a plug-in hybrid version in 2020. It will become the first plug-in hybrid mass-produced model of Opel. The details of Opel have not yet been disclosed, but the powertrain of the DS7 Crossback E-Tense has a lot in common. The latter will be on sale early next year with a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and a pair of electric motors that produce 300 horsepower.
After completing the final handover with General Motors last year, Opel has officially become a brand of PSA Group. Opel Grandland X is built on the PSA Group’s EMP2 platform and is a compact crossover. At present, a new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine is added to the Grandland X engine lineup. Its output power is 130 horsepower, the maximum torque is 300 N·m, and it can be obtained from 1750 rpm.
Among them, the six-speed manual transmission version has a fuel economy of about 4.1-4.2 liters/100 kilometers; the eight-speed automatic transmission version has a fuel economy of about 3.9-4.0 liters/100 kilometers. This engine comes from PSA and replaces the previous 1.6-liter diesel engine with 120 horsepower. Grandland X's optional diesel engine lineup also includes the previous more powerful 2.0-liter diesel generator with a maximum power of 177 horsepower. Both engines meet Euro 6d-TEMP emission standards. (Source: motor1; Compilation/Car House Chapter Lianyi)
