UNDERSTANDING PLUG-IN HYBRID (PHEV) RANGE

THE CONFIDENCE TO GO ANYWHERE

Wherever adventure leads you, life with a Land Rover plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is boundless. By driving in full Electric Vehicle (EV) mode on shorter trips and switching to your petrol engine for longer journeys, no distance is ever off limits.

ELECTRIC EXCELS AROUND TOWN

With an electric range of up to 66 km, Range Rover Evoque PHEV, for example, can cover most of your shorter daily journeys from a single charge and with zero tailpipe emissions. As electricity is typically cheaper per kilometre, it could also save you money along the way.

HOW FAR CAN I GO USING ELECTRIC?

Explore the electric range of the latest Land Rover PHEV family.

WHY IS THE REAL ELECTRIC RANGE OFTEN LESS THAN ADVERTISED?

Advertised figures allow drivers to compare one car to another in the same conditions. To enable this, all manufacturers test to the same WLTP (World Light Harmonised Test Procedure) and quote these figures.

Compared to the controlled conditions and temperatures of WLTP, in real-world conditions your range will differ based on factors including speed, outside temperatures and the weight you’re carrying.

HOW CAN I MAXIMISE MY EV RANGE?

Around 20% of the advertised EV range is typically affected by real-world driving conditions. With access to home charging, range should never be an issue for local journeys, but there are still some simple ways you can maximise your EV range every day.

  • PRECONDITIONING

    Preconditioning allows you to heat or cool your cabin and battery while your Land Rover is plugged in. This uses energy from the mains and preserves the energy in the battery to maximise driving range.

  • DRIVING SPEED

    Travelling at a steady pace – rather than frequent, heavy acceleration and hard braking – will help preserve your electric range.

  • ECO MODE

    Eco Mode is a simple way to optimise your range during your journey. It adjusts some of the settings including cabin temperature and air recirculation to save energy and maximise range.

  • BRAKE REGENERATION

    Once you lift your foot off the accelerator in a PHEV, an intelligent regenerative braking system comfortably slows the vehicle down while converting the power generated to optimise the battery’s range. Applying the brake increases the amount of power harvested.

KEEP EXPLORING ELECTRIC

  • PHEV BATTERY TECHNOLOGY

    Understand the durable technology powering the electric side of our PHEVs and how it’s driving our sustainable future.

  • CHARGING A PHEV

    From charging times to cost savings, learn everything you need to know about charging your PHEV at home or at your destination.


Range figures are determined by testing under standardised laboratory conditions to comply with ADR 81 / 02. These figures should only be used for the purpose of comparison amongst vehicles. Actual figures will generally differ under real world driving conditions and will vary depending on factors such as (but not limited to) driving style, vehicle’s equipment and road, traffic, and weather conditions.
