NEW DIESEL, PETROL OR PHEV?

OUR CURRENT PETROL AND DIESEL ENGINES ARE THE CLEANEST AND MOST EFFICIENT WE’VE EVER PRODUCED. OUR NEW PLUG-IN HYBRID ELECTRIC IS OUR MOST INNOVATIVE POWERTRAIN YET. WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

THE CHOICE IS YOURS

NEW DIESEL

Cleaner than ever, Land Rover’s new 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.

PETROL

Offering a dynamic and agile drive, our new breed of petrol engines honour the legacy of Land Rover’s iconic on-road responsiveness, while delivering impressively low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

PHEV

Our Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) seamlessly combine a conventional engine with an electric motor to provide all-electric performance at lower speeds and traditional combustion performance on longer journeys.

WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Answer 5 quick questions about your driving habits to see if your next vehicle should be diesel, petrol or electric.

Question 1

THE KEY BENEFITS OF NEW DIESEL, PETROL AND PHEV

LOW CO2 EMISSIONS

Land Rover’s new diesel engines produce around 20% lower CO2 emissions than petrol engines. In fact, since 2002, buyers choosing diesel engines have saved almost 3 million tonnes of CO2 from going into the atmosphere.

EU6d-TEMP AND REAL DRIVING EMISSIONS (RDE) COMPLIANT

Land Rover’s new diesel vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions.

REDUCED NITROGEN OXIDE EMISSIONS (NOx)

Since September 2015, all Land Rover’s new 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 petrol counterparts. So if you frequently cover 19,000km 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 petrol vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions.

A DYNAMIC DRIVING EXPERIENCE

With smooth and responsive power delivery, Land Rover petrol engines offer our most spirited driving experiences. They’re an exhilirating combination of effortless performance and stirring sounds at all speeds.

LOW PARTICULATES

Our latest petrol engines are equipped with highly efficient filters to capture and store ultrafine particles as exhaust gases pass through them. This helps to 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 on equivalent petrol engines can often prove a smarter choice for lower mileage drivers taking shorter journeys.

ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

Offering an impressive zero-tailpipe emission range, Land Rover PHEVs aren't just more economical to run, they are more eco-friendly than fuel-burning equivalents – massively reducing your environmental footprint.

NO COMPROMISE IN CAPABILITIES

The off-road capabilities you expect from a Land Rover remain uncompromised with PHEV. For example, Range Rover’s wading depth is exactly the same as 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 a seamless transition between the petrol engine and electric motor, delivering optimal refinement and adding to the sense of serenity within the interior space.

ECONOMICAL RUNNING COSTS

The relative low cost of electricity versus petrol and diesel means PHEVs are much cheaper to refuel. And with fewer moving powertrain parts to preserve, they’re also signifcantly cheaper to maintain.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

OPEN ALLCLOSE ALL
  • 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 50km. 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, our PHEVs have a range of up to 50km.* PHEV also utilises a 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 19,000km 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.
