In the next step towards delivering Jaguar Land Rover’s ‘Destination Zero’ mission, the brand has expanded its electrified vehicle range – adding a new plug-in hybrid system. The new plug-in hybrid system will launch in two of Land Rovers most popular models: Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport.
Sporting a 1.5 litre, three-cylinder plug-in hybrid, the new models will combine a conventional petrol engine, becoming the smallest in the Ingenium range. Partnered with an electric motor, the new models will provide a sustainable, efficient all-electric performance for shorter trips, as well as the option to use traditional power or combined petrol and electric drive for optimum efficiency on longer journeys.
“Designed, engineered and manufactured in-house, the modular, scaleable and flexible architecture of our Ingenium family has allowed us to create a pioneering, three-cylinder plug-in hybrid system, giving our customers more choice than ever before. The 200PS engine, combined with an 80kW electric motor on the rear axle, gives fantastic all-wheel drive capability and the perfect blend of performance, depending on your driving style…
Efficient electrification, downsizing and lightweighting also enables incredibly low CO2 of just 32g/km on the Evoque and 36g/km on the Discovery Sport. Additionally, both vehicles have an impressive all-electric, zero tailpipe emission range of 66km and 62km, respectively. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of our Jaguar Land Rover family, our latest plug-in hybrid offers the same awesome capability and composure with all-electric driving and stunning efficiency, both on- and off-road.”
Jaguar Land Rover Executive Director of Product Engineering
Both the models will offer a cost-effective option with lower emissions and a smooth drive. Offering a range of up to 41 miles, the electric-only mode delivers quiet, zero-tailpipe emissions driving on shorter journeys. Whilst hybrid mode merges petrol and electric driving for the best possible efficiency on longer journeys.
The new system makes low emission driving even easier by including a 15kWh battery which can be powered up from zero to 80 per cent in as little as 30 minutes using a public rapid charger. What’s more, both models have been designed from the outset for both plug-in and mild-hybrid technologies meaning the hardware has been packaged beneath the cabin floor without compromising cabin and luggage space, or all-terrain capabilities.
With a plug-in hybrid model, the cost of ownership is reduced as a whole-life cost due to a reduced need for petrol.
