Jaguar Land Rover introduces new PHEV drive with 1,5-L gasoline-phev

The British automaker Jaguar Land Rover extends its range of electric vehicles with the introduction of a new plug-in hybrid system that is introduced in the company’s two best-selling models. This is the next step in the implementation of the Mission “Destination Zero” by Jaguar Land Rover for the design of future mobility: a mobility without emissions, without accidents and without congestion.

The 1.5-liter three-cylinder plug-in hybrid combines a conventional gasoline engine, the smallest of the ingenium series, with an electric motor to provide sustainable, efficient fully electric power for shorter rides as well as conventional power or combined gasoline and electric drive and thus ensures optimal efficiency on longer distances, so the manufacturer in a message. The new technology is introduced in the Range Rover Evoque and the discovery sports of the latest generation. System performance is 227 kW / 309 hp, the torque 540 nm. The drive comes according to WLTP standard on a consumption of 1.9 liters in the Range Rover Evoque P300E and 2 liters in the Range Rover Discovery Sport P300E.

“Thanks to the modular, scalable and flexible architecture of our ingenium engine family designed, constructed and manufactured in your own home, we were able to develop a groundbreaking three-cylinder plug-in hybrid system that offers our customers more choices than ever before. The 200-hp engine in combination with an 80 kW electric motor on the rear axle offers fantastic four-wheel drive capability and the perfect mix of performance and efficient electrification.”- Nick Rogers, Technik Executive Board Jaguar Land Rover

The new Jaguar Land Rover plug-in hybrid system offers customers a selection of efficient driving modes that best meet their individual requirements. The purely electrical mode delivers low, emission-free driving for shorter routes. The range depending on the model is up to 68 km. The hybrid mode automatically combines gasoline and electric drive for optimal efficiency on longer routes. In this mode, the car adapts to the driving conditions and judges the remaining capacity of the battery to maintain the charge or fuel consumption. As a third option for longer distances, the vehicle can be driven exclusively with the 1.5-liter gasoline engine, whereby the battery charge is maintained.

Charging the battery is made as easy as possible, regardless of whether the vehicle is traveling or connected. During the journey, the energy generated by the engine when accelerating or braking in electrical or hybrid mode is stored and used to charge the battery. If a charge is required, the 15 kWh battery can be charged from zero to 80 percent at a public fast load column in 30 minutes. At home, the charging process takes a good quarter of a quarter on a wallbox or good six and a half hours with household stream.

37 kilos lighter than the four-cylinder

Jaguar Land Rover has submitted more than 40 patent applications for the latest technologies of the three-cylinder plug-in hybrid system. Some of them relate, for example, to the high-voltage strap integrated starter generator (BIS), which plays a key role for the hybrid system of this vehicle. The new 1.5-liter three-cylinder ingenium petrol engine with 200 hp is the heart of the new hybrid drive. The aluminum motor is 37 kg lighter than the four-cylinder version. Thanks to its hybrid technology, he offers strong performance coupled with the usual cultivation of a Jaguar or Land Rover Motors and efficient fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Discovery Sport are based on the premium transversal architecture of Land Rover, which was developed from the beginning both for plug-in and mild hybrid technologies. The hardware has been packed under the cabin floor without compromising the cabin and luggage compartment or terrain capacity.

With CO2 emissions of 43 g / km and a locally emission-free range of up to 68 km, the Range Rover Evoque Phevs qualify exactly like Discovery Sport Phevs with CO2 emissions of 46 g / km and a locally emission-free range of 64 kilometers for A halved taxation of company cars. Thus, the two PHEV models are also attractive as company vehicles and for fleets. Anyone who orders a Range Rover Evoque Phev or a Country Rover Discovery Sport Phev as a company vehicle must pay the monetary advantage for private use only with 0.5 percent instead of 1.0 percent of the new car value. This means halving the monthly deductions for a company car.

Jaguar Land Rovers “Destination Zero”

Jaguar Land Rover has a growing portfolio of electrified products in its model range, which includes fully electric plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles. Next to the Discovery Sport and the Range Rover Evoque range Range Rover and Range Rover Sports are also offered for mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid options for flagship vehicles. Similarly, the recently introduced new Land Rover Defender will be introduced from the beginning with mild-hybrid and later this year as plug-in hybrid.

Jaguar Land Rover also has a pure electric car in the program, the SUV Jaguar i-Pace. The manufacturer has also confirmed plans to rebuild its work in Castle Bromwich to produce a number of new electrified vehicles, starting with the new Jaguar XJ.

Due to the enlargement of his portfolio of electrified products, the company drives its “destination zero” – to make his desire to make societies safer and healthier and to make the environment cleaner – a responsible future for his employees, customers and communities. Through tireless innovations, Jaguar Land Rover adapts to products and services to the needs of a rapidly changing world, the manufacturer shares with.

  1. “His desire to make societies safer and healthier and make the environment cleaner” – cynical statements have not yet heard of a car manufacturer – the vehicles builds in this weight and performance class. Disgusting…
