Opel on Monday unveiled the Grandland X Hybrid4 crossover.
Opel's first plug-in hybrid is the start of a big electrification push, as the automaker wants to electrify its entire lineup by 2024.
The Opel Grandland X Hybrid4 starts with a 1.6-liter turbocharged I4 that puts out 200 horsepower on its own.
That setup is mated to a pair of electric motors, one on each axle, that combines with the gas engine to generate a net 300 hp.
By Europe's new WLTP efficiency standards, Opel reckons its battery will be good for about 31 miles of electric-only travel.
A 3.3-kilowatt charger is standard, but if you need juice in a hurry, there's a 6.6-kW charger on offer, too.
Electric mode allows the vehicle to operate on electricity alone, for as long as the battery can handle it.
Hybrid mode automatically chooses the most efficient method of propulsion, while Sport turns up all the wicks to improve responsiveness.
And then there's AWD mode, which activates the rear axle's electric motor for improved traction.
Deliveries start in 2020.
