The propulsion system in the Grandland X Hybrid produces 225hp, thanks to a 180hp, 1.6-litre turbocharged, direct injection four-cylinder petrol engine and a 110hp electric motor. Powered by a 13.2 kWh lithium-ion battery, the electric motor is coupled to an electrified eight-speed automatic transmission and provides up to 360Nm of torque (preliminary fuel consumption: 192mpg, 35g/km CO2 NEDC).
The new Hybrid Powertrain will be introduced for Swift Sport, Vitara and S-Cross models and offer up to 20 per cent lower CO2 emissions, a greater level of torque and 15 per cent overall improvement in WLTP Combined fuel consumption. These models will directly replace the current 1.4-litre Boosterjet derivatives with manual transmission.
