Life After GM: Meet The Grandland X PHEV, Opel’s First Plug-in Under PSA

Opel (and its UK sibling Vauxhall) haven’t had that much choice when it comes to plug-in vehicles. Under General Motors, the only plug-ins offered for sale in Europe by Opel were the Opel Ampera (a rebadged Chevrolet Volt that was sold for a few years) and more recently, the Opel Ampera-e (a rebadged Chevrolet Bolt EV that has been available in very limited numbers).

Now Opel and Vauxhall have been sold to the PSA group however, the two brands are getting to benefit from PSA’s new plug-in vehicle plans. These include an all-electric Corsa, Vivano, and electric replacement to the Mokka X. Earlier this week, we saw the first plug-in vehicle to be sold under the Opel badge since its change of parent company – the Opel Grandland X PHEV.

Here’s what we know so far.
