Working closely with the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and local health agencies to obtain the latest developments in the worsening Covid-19 pandemic, Jaguar Land Rover North America recommits itself to prioritizing the health, safety, and satisfaction of its authorized retailers, employees and consumers.
Meeting a redefined list of needs through updated daily cleaning regimens, the highest levels of social distancing, and a whole-new series of Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid SUVs, which will debut in the brand’s Discovery Sport and the Range Rover Evoque – the brand aims to be a ray of light and hope for the world to overcome this pandemic.
Ranging anywhere from $37,800 to $90,900, the new system combines a 1.5-liter three-cylinder internal-combustion engine and a 15 kWh battery pack with a 107 horsepower electric motor. Harnessing a maximum of 304 horsepower at 398 lb-ft of torque, the Range Rover Evoque P300e accelerates 0-60 in a matter of 6.4 seconds whilst the Land Rover Discovery P300e is a few ticks slower at 6.6 seconds.
Taking orders for both hybrids in the UK, the Evoque and Discovery can travel 41 and 38 miles, respectively, on battery power alone and can acquire a total mileage of 168 MPG in under 7 hours of charging when plugged to any regular household electrical system. Announcing plans for a wider release in the first quarter of 2021, Jaguar Land Rover North America has also established financial aid in the form of vehicle loan or lease payment assistance, lease-end extension, lease-end vehicle returns, and in new vehicle purchases, for consumers heavily impacted by Covid-19.
