To keep up with the continuous additions to the hybrid car market Landrover have recently unveiled some more plug in hybrid options to their range of vehicles. You can now opt for an evoke which can do just over 40 miles with the use of only electric saving you lots of fuel and it also means that the car is extra green for the environment. The discovery sport comes with similar statistics however it is a larger and heavier car so it is likely the evoke will have a slightly better range on just electric.
The engine for both models is called a p300e and has good co2 readings for the size of cars they are. The Evoque on average reads 32g per km whilst the discovery sport is slightly higher at 36g per km.
Both of these new cars come with the manufacturers 1.5 litre engine which produces an impressive 200 horse power and combining the electric motor the cars full break horse power is just over 300. These engine configurations have been cleverly designed so that the power is distributed to all 4 wheels so off road capabilities have not been restricted with the use of this new style of power.
These new engine configurations are excellent news for drivers as most journeys will be possible on all electric mode making it a sensible option for individuals and also business or fleet owners.
Like most plug in hybrid cars the charging times are very similar and it takes 30 minutes for up to 80% charge using a fast charge public point. If you are using a home charger it will normally take around 1 hour 30 minutes to charge. If you are charging your new Landrover over night at home it will take approximately 6 and a half hours on a standard 3 pin charging cable.
We foresee that sales of these engines will be very good for the future of landrover and we hope to see similar technologies used in the more powerful cars they have to offer.
