Jaguar Land Rover has just announced a new plug-in hybrid system and announced that it will be featured on the latest Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport models, as well as other models.

The hybrid powerplant combines a small 1.5-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine with 197 hp. with a 107-horsepower electric motor and a 15 kWh battery. The result is 304 hp and 540 Nm of torque. The Range Rover Evoque P300e can reach 100 km / h in 6.4 seconds, and the Land Rover Discovery Sport P300e in 6.6 seconds.

Both models are able to charge their batteries from zero to 80% in 30 minutes via DC chargers of 50 kW and 100 kW (SUV charging is limited to 32 kW). The all-electric mileage for the Evoque P300e is 66 km, while the Discovery Sport P300e can travel 62 km on a single battery. Buyers of both models will receive a charging cable for the house in mode 2, which allows you to charge the battery after 6 hours 42 minutes through a regular household outlet.

Not only are the new Evoque and Discovery Sport hybrid models offering respectable features, they are also very economical in the combined WLTP cycle with a Range Rover rated at 1.4 l / 100 km and a Land Rover rated at 1.6 l / 100 km . An 8-speed automatic transmission is connected to the hybrid unit.

Three different driving modes are available to users. In hybrid mode, by default, the engine and electric motor work in harmony and adapt to driving conditions and the remaining charge in the battery. EV mode is offered when SUVs are powered exclusively by an electric motor. Last but not least, this is the SAVE mode, which gives priority to the internal combustion engine as the main source of energy and maintains the state of charge of the battery at a certain level.

The British car manufacturer has not yet announced the launch date for both models in all markets in which they will be sold. However, we know that he is already taking orders in the UK.
