When it comes to charging your plug-in hybrid (PHEV), life couldn’t be simpler. Here’s everything you need to know about getting the power to go electric every day.
PHEV CHARGING CONNECTORS
To connect to a charging point, your Land Rover PHEV uses a Combined Charging System (CCS). This is compatible with slower AC charging speeds, and on selected models, rapid DC charging speeds. Some other car manufacturers use different systems for charging such as CHAdeMO. These are less-widely used across the charging network and are incompatible with Land Rover PHEVs.
The top part of your vehicle’s CCS inlet is used for AC charging (up to 7kW). The connectors that fit into this are known as a Type 2 connectors and compatible with your home charger, public AC charging points and domestic plug sockets.
RAPID DC CHARGING
On selected models, the lower half of your vehicle’s CCS inlet features two pins that combine with three of the pins above to provide rapid DC charging (up to 50kW) typically on motorways and main roads. The two lower pins can be accessed by removing the lower socket cover.
PHEV CHARGING CABLES
Your PHEV is compatible with three types of charging cables for different power sources.
PUBLIC AND WALL BOX AC CHARGING CABLE (MODE 3)
A Mode 3 charging cable connects your vehicle to home chargers (wall box) and public AC charging points. It features a Type 2 connector at both ends.
TETHERED RAPID DC CHARGING CABLE
A Rapid DC charging cable is always attached to public charging points on motorways and main roads, so there’s no need to use your own cable. To charge, the cable’s connector must be plugged into both parts of your vehicle’s CCS inlet.
DOMESTIC PLUG CHARGING CABLE (MODE 2)
The Mode 2 charging cable connects your vehicle to domestic sockets using a Type 2 connector on one end and a domestic plug on the other.
Optional Mode 2 charging cables are not included with your Land Rover and can be purchased separately.
