Land Rovers: Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport as plug-in hybrid-range

Only in November 2019 we thought about it: “What you can expect from 2022 fully electrified Range Rover”. So far we still have the same answer. Now Land Rover uses us at least the question: “What you can expect at partially electrified models in 2020,” because the British company is waiting with its two compact premium SUV Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport with plug-in hybrid drive.

With the currently presented P300E variants of the two models, Land Rover provides the combination of 147 kW (200 hp) strong 1.5 liter ingenium three-cylinder gasoline engine including eight-speed automation with an 80 kW (109 hp) powered electric motor as a rear axle drive. The CO2 emissions of the PHEV models start at 43 g / km, purely electric you should be able to cover a range of up to 68 kilometers with the plug-in variants of Evoque and Discovery Sport. Based on the premium transversal architecture (PTA), both models for the electric drive were designed. So far, the models Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport were already available in gasoline and diesel version with 48-volt mild hybrid. The new PHEV models now contact the side of the mild hybrid.

“The ingenium engine family was designed and developed by Jaguar Land Rover – the engines run in our own works by the band. The ingenium family is modular, scalable and flexible, therefore allows us as one of the first manufacturers to bring a plug-in hybrid system with three-cylinder on the market. This gives our customers even more possibilities. The combination of electrification, downsizing and weight reduction brings a lot of advantages – in consumption as well as in the electrical reach and the possibility to drive emission-free in the city.”- Nick Rogers, Jaguar Land Rover Executive Board Technology

The energy for its propulsion receives the electric motor from a lithium-ion battery, which is placed under the rear seat and waiting with a capacity of 15 kWh. With the DUO from the combustion and electric motor, the partial circulation is possible to add a corresponding sprint. While the Evoque sprints in 6.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, the Discovery Sports in the same discipline with 6.6 seconds only insignificantly requires more time. If the duo is purely with e-power on the road, a maximum speed of up to 135 km / h is possible.

It is also outstanding the efficiency in the form of consumption and emissions. According to WLTP procedure, the Range Rover Evoque P300E comes to just 43 g / km of CO2 emissions and a combined consumption of 1.9 liters per 100 kilometers. Purely electric and thus without exhaust emissions, the new Evoque Phev can cover up to 68 kilometers. Barely different, the data in the Land Rover Discovery Sport P300e is. He drives exclusively with electric drive up to 64 kilometers, combined WLTP consumption is 2.0 liters per 100 kilometers and CO2 emissions at 46 g / km.

Land Rover follows with the partial electrification of its own, aused strategy. After the I-PACE, the manufacturers first drive the “hybridization in many models”, as well as “the limousine flagship Jaguar XJ” is provided for 2020 as electric car. Such an article from October 2019. Even then, JLR-CEO Speth gave to understand that you will achieve the CO2 goals. The two PHEV SUV will certainly contribute to their part.
