Last month, Opel unveiled the Opel Astra GSe and Astra Sports Tourer GSe. The new sub-brand GSe represents Opel's electrified and energetic top models, which have been made more sporty aesthetically, in terms of equipment and driving characteristics, than the rest of the Grandland model line. The Opel Grandland GSe, which will spearhead Opel's SUV effort, will be the next GSe model.
The new Opel Grandland GSe is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and two electric motors, one on each axle, for a total system output of 300 horsepower. The plug-in hybrid powertrain features permanent four-wheel drive (e-AWD), ensuring that the Opel Grandland GSe always has excellent road grip and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds. The top speed is 225 km/h on pure electricity and 135 km/h on gasoline.
