All-electric Vauxhall Grandland replacement confirmed for 2024

Vauxhall’s next family SUV will use new STLA Medium electric platform and could have a range of up to 435 miles

Grandland vs Karoq vs Qashqai - Vauxhall Grandland cornering

The successor for the popular Vauxhall Grandland SUV will be fully-electric, and on sale in 2024, according to a new announcement from the brand outlining a £114m investment in the Eisenach assembly plant where the new model will be built.

The Grandland - introduced as Grandland X in 2017 at that year’s Frankfurt Motor Show -  played host to Vauxhall’s first ever production plug-in hybrid offering with the introduction of the HybridX version in 2019. Since then, the firm has revealed four new fully-electric vehicles, two of which are currently on sale in the form of the Corsa Electric and the Mokka Electric

They’ll soon be joined by fully-electric versions of the Astra and Astra Sports Tourer, using a modified version of the Stellantis EMP2 platform known as ‘V3’.

The Grandland successor (Vauxhall has made no indication as to whether or not the new car will continue with the Grandland name) will be built on an entirely different platform. It will be the first Vauxhall to move to the next-generation electric platforms being readied by Stellantis.

The STLA system - of which there are four sizes - is a totally bespoke electric platform, with the replacement for the Grandland SUV being eyed up to make its debut on the STLA Medium variant. In terms of technology, that means the new car could support batteries up to 104kWh in capacity, delivering a targeted range of 435 miles. High performance versions could boast electric motor systems with as much as 443bhp, but most models will use powertrains ranging between 168bhp and 241bhp. 

Vauxhall is aiming to become an electric-only manufacturer quicker than most, with plans for a full EV line-up by 2028.
