LAND ROVER DRIVES TOWARDS AN ALL‑ELECTRIC FUTURE
In February 2021, Land Rover’s bold Reimagine strategy was announced, which sets out a sustainability-rich reimagination of modern luxury by design, unique customer experiences, and positive societal impact. As part of this, Land Rover will welcome six pure electric vehicles over the next five years.
To support this strategic direction, Land Rover Australia has expanded its plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) offering for 23MY, with the Range Rover Evoque P300e PHEV joining the existing Range Rover Sport P400e PHEV and all new Range Rover PHEV, available to order now. Following soon will be the Range Rover Velar PHEV and Defender 110 PHEV, all available to order across 2022.
Scott Maynard, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Australia said, “We are delighted to introduce an expanded Land Rover PHEV offering…Australian drivers are increasingly considering electrified powertrains – our expanded PHEV line-up offers compelling alternatives to traditional ICE engines, providing customers with more choice…Land Rover will offer pure electric power, nameplate by nameplate, by 2030.”
RANGE ROVER EVOQUE ELECTRIFIED
The 23MY Range Rover Evoque is now offered as an efficient plug-in hybrid with CO2 emissions from only 43g/km and an all-electric range of up to 62km – enough for the average daily commute without recharging.
EFFICIENT, REFINED, CAPABLE
The Range Rover Evoque P300e has a new 147kW three-cylinder 1.5- litre Ingenium petrol engine and smooth-shifting new eight-speed automatic transmission combined with an 80kW Electric Rear Axle Drive motor which delivers low fuel consumption, excellent performance and Land Rover’s signature all-wheel-drive capability.
SMART & FLEXIBLE WITH FAST EASY CHARGING
The Range Rover Evoque P300e PHEV system can operate in electric-only mode, combustion engine-only mode, or a combination, using GPS and navigation data to optimise efficiency on every journey. It can achieve 0-80 per cent charge in as little as 30 minutes using 32kW DC public charging or just 1hr 24mins using a 7kW AC wallbox. Range Rover Evoque’s Advanced P300e plug-in hybrid powertrain features enhanced SAVE mode which optimises regenerative battery charging, attaining up to 80 per cent in as little as 90 minutes.
