Range Rover Evoque

Jaguar Land Rover has announced that it has introduced new plug-in hybrid technology to the models such as Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

As the company states, the recent plug-in hybrid system can switch to an electric-only mode for shorter rides. Furthermore, this petrol-and-electric driving technology permits a longer range for the vehicle without refueling.

Several automakers are bringing plug-in hybrid technology to their conventional fuel-powered models. For a name, BMW already has around 500,000 electric and hybrid cars on the road. In March 2020, BMW and Daimler made a prediction that their new electric vehicles will help cut emissions by an average of 20 percent in this year.

“Efficient electrification, downsizing and lightweight also enables incredibly low CO2 of just 32g/km on the Evoque and 36g/km on the Discovery Sport. Additionally, both automobiles have an impressive all-electric, zero tailpipe emission range of 66km and 62km, respectively,” said Nick Rogers, Jaguar Land Rover Executive Director of Product Engineering.

“Our latest plug-in hybrid provides the same awesome capability and composure with all-electric driving and stunning efficiency, both on- and off-road,” he said.

As the company states, while being driven, the energy generated by the engine during acceleration, or by braking in electric or hybrid mode, is harvested and utilized to charge the battery of these two models.
