Land Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport crossovers to become hybrid

March 1, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

Cars will change the platform, which excludes the use of only one internal combustion engine.

The next generation of Land Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport crossovers will move to a new EMA platform designed specifically for electric cars and hybrids. This step is dictated by the manufacturer’s desire to abandon the production of models with internal combustion engines by 2036.

It is reported that the platform will be presented no earlier than 2024, shortly after the premiere, the company will show a new generation of Discovery Sport and Evoque. It is expected that the new platform will receive a flat-bottomed body under which the battery will be placed. Special electric motors will also be developed for the platform, which will become leaders in the class in terms of torque.

It is assumed that the EMA will allow the manufacturer to produce not only plug-in hybrids on it, but also electric vehicles. In parallel with it, work will be carried out on another “cart” – MLA, which is being developed for use in larger models of the brand.
