THE POWER TO SUIT YOUR SURROUNDINGS
Explore the driving modes that switch your Land Rover plug-in hybrid (PHEV) from electric to petrol at the touch of a button.
Your default driving mode automatically selects between the petrol engine and electric battery to meet the power and torque required for your journey.
ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV) MODE
Manually selected by a button on your console, EV mode maximises your time spent using electric power. The system will automatically introduce the petrol engine if more power is required than is available through electricity alone.
OPTIMISING YOUR FUEL ECONOMY
When in the default driving mode (Hybrid) you can optimise fuel economy or battery charge by utilising one of two alternative charge management functions:
Manually selected through the vehicle’s touchscreen, the Save function prevents the battery charge dropping below your chosen level. On selected models, this function also allows the battery to be recharged on the move. This allows you to preserve quiet, zero-emission travel for a later point in the journey.
PREDICTIVE ENERGY OPTIMISATION (PEO) FUNCTION
Entering a destination in your navigation system will automatically engage your vehicle’s PEO function. By using geographical data to predict the road ahead, PEO intelligently switches between the electric motor and petrol engine to maximise fuel economy throughout the journey. This also minimises tailpipe emissions in urban areas.
Whichever mode you are driving in, once you lift your foot off the accelerator in your PHEV, the 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.
