    • 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 petrol, 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 31 miles. Installing a wall box from one of our approved wall box suppliers and installers can reduce charging times to 2 hours and 45 minutes.

    • What is the range of a Hybrid car?

      Using the electric motor only, a Land Rover PHEV has a range of up to 31 miles.* PHEV also utilises an Ingenium petrol engine to support a much larger range, in the same way as other combustion engine vehicles.

    • What are the advantages of diesel over petrol?

      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 petrol 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 centre to develop a family of more efficient petrol 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.
