The new Grandland draws inspiration from the Opel Experimental concept car, translating bold design elements into a production model. Notable features include the distinctive 3D Vizor with an illuminated Blitz logo at the front and the "OPEL" lettering at the rear, which create a striking visual identity. The SUV sits atop Opel's new STLA Medium platform, tailored for battery electric vehicles (BEVs), enabling the Grandland Electric variant to achieve an impressive WLTP1 range of up to around 700 kilometers on a single charge.

One of the standout design innovations is the Intelli-Lux Pixel HD lighting system, boasting over 50,000 individual elements for superior illumination and safety. This advanced system adapts to traffic conditions, providing enhanced visibility without glaring other road users.

Beyond its stunning design and electrified powertrain, the Grandland promises a dynamic driving experience. Advanced technologies like frequency selective damping enhance ride quality and stability, while an array of driver assistance systems, including Automatic Cruise Control, Extended Traffic Sign Recognition, and Intelligent Speed Adaptation, prioritize safety and convenience. Opel's commitment to electrification is embodied in the Grandland Electric, equipped with a flat battery packaging design and a substantial 98 kWh battery capacity. This configuration not only maximizes range but also supports fast charging, with an 80% charge achievable in just 26 minutes at public fast charging stations. 

Interior Sophistication

Inside, the Grandland offers a harmonious blend of bold aesthetics and functional design. The cabin features a horizontal theme that enhances the feeling of spaciousness, complemented by premium materials including interior fabric made from recycled PET. Ergonomic AGR seats with innovative features like powered bolsters ensure optimum comfort for occupants, with ample legroom and versatile storage solutions adding to the SUV's practicality.

Opel's commitment to sustainability extends throughout the Grandland, from its eco-friendly interior materials to its electrified drivetrain. The SUV embodies Opel's "Greenovation" approach, utilizing recycled materials and efficient technologies to minimize environmental impact without compromising performance or style.

With the launch of the new Grandland, Opel underscores its vision for the future of mobility – one that embraces electrification, innovation, and distinctive design. The SUV exemplifies Opel's evolution as a pioneer in sustainable automotive solutions while offering customers a compelling blend of style, performance, and eco-consciousness.

The Opel Grandland represents a significant milestone in Opel's electrification strategy and showcases the brand's unwavering commitment to shaping the future of mobility. As Opel CEO Florian Huettl emphasizes, the Grandland is not just a car; it's a testament to Opel's dedication to pushing boundaries and delivering exceptional vehicles that redefine what it means to drive sustainably in style.
