NEW DIESEL, GAS OR PLUG‑IN HYBRID ELECTRIC?
OUR CURRENT GAS AND DIESEL POWERTRAINS ARE THE CLEANEST AND MOST EFFICIENT WE’VE EVER PRODUCED. OUR NEW PLUG-IN HYBRID ELECTRIC POWERTRAIN IS OUR MOST INNOVATIVE YET. WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Cleaner than ever, the new Land Rover diesel engines offer improved fuel efficiency with torque characteristics suitable for off-road terrain and towing. It’s a combination that creates truly dependable long-distance performance.
Offering a dynamic and agile drive, our new breed of gas engines honor the iconic Land Rover legacy of on-road responsiveness while delivering impressively low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Our Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) seamlessly combine a conventional engine with an electric motor to provide all-electric performance at lower speeds and traditional combustion performance on longer journeys.
THE KEY BENEFITS OF NEW DIESEL, GAS AND PHEV
LOW CO2 EMISSIONS
The new Land Rover diesel engines produce around 20% lower CO2 emissions than gas engines. In fact, since 2002, buyers choosing diesel engines have saved almost 3 million tons of CO2 from going into the atmosphere.
EU6d-TEMP AND REAL DRIVING EMISSIONS (RDE) COMPLIANT
The new Land Rover diesel vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions. This means they are exempt from Transport for London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charges.
REDUCED NITROGEN OXIDE EMISSIONS (NOx)
Since September 2015, all new Land Rover diesel engines have featured advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e., AdBlue®), which helps to dramatically reduce NOx emissions.
ENHANCED FUEL EFFICIENCY
Diesel engines deliver around 20% better fuel economy than their gas counterparts. So if you frequently cover 12,000 miles a year or more, it’s likely to be the most cost-effective choice for you.
EU6d-TEMP AND REAL DRIVING EMISSIONS (RDE) COMPLIANT
New Land Rover gas vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions. This means they are exempt from Transport for London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charges.
A DYNAMIC DRIVING EXPERIENCE
With smooth and responsive power delivery, Land Rover gas engines offer our most spirited driving experiences. They’re an exhilarating combination of effortless performance and stirring sounds at all speeds.
Our latest gas engines are equipped with highly efficient filters to capture and store ultrafine particles as exhaust gases pass through them. This helps lower the amount of tailpipe emissions released into the atmosphere.
CHEAPER UPFRONT COSTS
Although diesel engines typically offer greater fuel efficiency, the cheaper upfront costs of equivalent gas engines can often prove a smarter choice for lower mileage drivers taking shorter journeys.
With a zero-tailpipe emission range of up to 19 miles, the Land Rover PHEV isn’t just more economical to run, it’s more eco-friendly than fuel-burning equivalents – massively reducing your environmental footprint.
NO COMPROMISE IN CAPABILITIES
The off-road capabilities you expect from Land Rover remain uncompromised with PHEV. For example, the wading depth of the Range Rover PHEV is exactly the same as with a conventional combustion engine, plus the additional torque provided by the electric motor is also a benefit when driving off-road.
A MORE REFINED DRIVE
Offering our quietest drive yet, PHEV ensures seamless transition between the gas engine and electric motor, delivering optimal refinement and adding to the sense of serenity within the interior space.
ECONOMICAL RUNNING COSTS
The relatively low cost of electricity versus gas and diesel means PHEVs are much cheaper to refuel. And with fewer moving powertrain parts to preserve, they’re also significantly cheaper to maintain.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a powertrain?
A vehicle powertrain is every component that turns power into movement. This includes: axles, differentials, drive shafts, engine / electric motor, transmission.
The most common vehicle powertrain systems are gas, diesel, battery electric vehicle (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).
How long does it take to recharge a Hybrid car?
Our PHEV range can fully recharge from either a domestic socket or an IEC connector in as little as 7.5 hours, enabling emissions free commuting for up to 19 miles. Installing a wall box from one of our approved wall box suppliers and installers can reduce charging times to 2.75 hours.
What is the range of a Hybrid car?
Using the electric motor only, a Land Rover PHEV has a range of up to 19 miles. PHEV also utilizes an Ingenium gas engine to support a much larger range, in the same way as other combustion engine vehicles.
What are the advantages of diesel over gas?
The higher energy density of the fuel, and the way energy is released during combustion, means diesel can offer a greater efficiency. If you are driving 12,000 miles a year or more, a diesel is likely to be the most cost-effective choice.
Generally, a diesel engine offers more torque than a gas engine, which means its power is more suitable for conquering off-road terrain and towing.
How does Jaguar Land Rover reduce vehicle emissions?
At Jaguar Land Rover, we have invested over £1billion into our state-of-the-art engine manufacturing center to develop a family of more efficient gas and diesel engines.
Are diesel engines clean?
As of September 2018, all our EU and EEA diesel engines meet tough EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) regulations. This means that our new diesel engines are so clean they can pass freely through the Ultra-Low Emission Zones that enforce a financial penalty on drivers emitting high levels of pollutants.
By producing our cleanest engines to date, we are significantly reducing environmental impact.
What is a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and why is it important?
In order to meet stringent emissions regulations, introduced in 2009, all new diesel vehicles are fitted with an exhaust filter. These are also known as Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs). DPFs efficiently capture and store particles from exhaust gases, helping to lower tailpipe emissions.
