UNDERSTANDING PLUG-IN ELECTRIC HYBRID (PHEV) RANGE

THE CONFIDENCE TO GO ANYWHERE

Wherever adventure leads you, life with a Land Rover plug-in electric hybrid (PHEV) is boundless. By driving in full Electric Vehicle (EV) mode on shorter trips and switching to your petrol engine for longer journeys, no distance is ever off limits.

ELECTRIC EXCELS AROUND TOWN

With a certified electric range of up to 113 km, New Range Rover Extended Range electric hybrid, for example, can cover most of your shorter daily journeys from a single charge and with zero tailpipe emissions.

HOW FAR CAN I GO USING ELECTRIC?

Explore the electric range of the latest Land Rover electric hybrid family.

  • NEW RANGE ROVER EXTENDED RANGE ELECTRIC HYBRID

    The ultimate Range Rover.
    EV range up to 100 km.

  • DEFENDER ELECTRIC HYBRID

    The most capable Land Rover.
    EV range up to 55 km.

WHY IS THE REAL ELECTRIC RANGE OFTEN LESS THAN ADVERTISED?

Advertised figures allow drivers to compare one car to another in the same conditions. To enable this, all manufacturers test to the same WLTP (World Light Harmonised Test Procedure) and quote these figures.

Compared to the controlled conditions and temperatures of WLTP, in real-world conditions range achieved will vary dependent on vehicle and battery condition, actual route and environment and driving style.

HOW CAN I MAXIMISE MY EV RANGE?

Around 20% of the advertised EV range is typically affected by real-world driving conditions. With access to home charging, range should never be an issue for local journeys, but there are still some simple ways you can maximise your EV range every day.

  • PRECONDITIONING

    Preconditioning allows you to heat or cool your cabin and battery while your Land Rover is plugged in. This uses energy from the mains and preserves the energy in the battery to maximise driving range.

  • DRIVING SPEED

    Travelling at a steady pace – rather than frequent, heavy acceleration and hard braking – will help preserve your electric range.

  • ECO MODE

    Eco Mode is a simple way to optimise your range during your journey. It adjusts some of the settings including cabin temperature and air recirculation to save energy and maximise range.

  • BRAKE REGENERATION

    Once you lift your foot off the accelerator in an electric hybrid, an intelligent regenerative braking system comfortably slows the vehicle down while converting the power generated to optimise the battery’s range. Applying the brake increases the amount of power harvested.

  • CHARGING AN ELECTRIC HYBRID

    From charging times to cost savings, learn everything you need to know about charging your electric hybrid at home or at your destination.

EV range figures are based upon production vehicle over a standardised route. Range achieved will vary dependent on vehicle and battery condition, actual route and environment and driving style.
