THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
With a Land Rover plug-in hybrid (PHEV), most of your charging is done from the comfort of home.
It’s usually the cheapest, most convenient way to charge – as easy as plugging in your phone – and you’ll never need to visit the fuel pumps for local trips around town.
HOME CHARGING CAN SAVE YOU MONEY
Plugging in is not only incredibly convenient, it’s cheaper than running a petrol or diesel car every day. You will also typically save more money charging at home than charging away from home. Using an off-peak electricity tariff can reduce your costs further still.
TOP UP AT YOUR NEXT STOP
As the public charging infrastructure continues to grow, there are now more places than ever to conveniently charge your PHEV away from home.
Charging points at many public car parks, shopping centres and motorway services make it easy to top up while you’re parked up. And if you’re spending a few hours in the office, workplace charging can have you fully charged by lunchtime.
The majority of destination charging points around towns and cities require the use of your own charging cable. This is included with your Land Rover PHEV as standard. And just like at home, it can be used in all weathers.
MONITOR AND CONTROL FROM YOUR PHONE
Once you’ve simply plugged in and walked away, your Land Rover’s InControl App1 neatly sends your charging status to your mobile. So wherever you are, you can plan your time productively and be ready to get back out there without missing a beat.
At home, your app’s timed charging feature can even be used to lock into the daily window of off-peak electricity and substantially cheaper EV tariffs offered by many home energy providers.
CHARGING TIMES FOR PHEV
Our figures for rapid DC charging points – typically found at motorway service stations and main roads – are quoted up to 80%. This is because the charging speed slows down significantly above 80% to protect the battery and optimise its life.

DOMESTIC SOCKETS PROVIDE ADDED REASSURANCE
If you’re away for longer periods and no home charger is available, your standard domestic plug socket used for household electrical items will also charge your vehicle at a much slower rate – typically 0-100% from seven hours.
For charging your vehicle using a domestic socket, an optional Mode 2 cable is available to purchase separately.

‡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.
†The figures provided are NEDC2 calculated from official manufacturer's WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation with a fully charged battery. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2, fuel economy, energy consumption and range figures may vary according to factors such as driving styles, environmental conditions, load, wheel fitment and accessories fitted. NEDC2 are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.
