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?
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
