Did Land Rover tech site confirm 2.0L Ingenium Petrol Hybrid for 2018 Range Rover?


Found some interesting changes for the MY18 Range Rover while browsing around on TOPIx today.  We knew they’ve been testing them but still don’t know all the details.  Still showing the existing 3.0L V6 Diesel and 5.0L V8 Supercharged options, they’ve removed the V6 Petrol and added in the 2.0L AJ200P Ingenium Petrol engine suffixed as a Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle(PHEV).  Transmission also gets a new name.  Range Rover Sport also got the PHEV option and it continues to show the 3.0L V6 Petrol as an option(see below).

The previous Hybrid available in the UK was diesel based and did not use the same moniker for the transmission.

A 4-cylinder Range Rover.  Can’t wait to see the numbers, I bet it’s going to be impressive.  And this MY18 refresh is going to be a big one.


UPDATE: Further still, another little bit of info was right there too:

The CDA suffix for the 5.0L V8 – CDA is Cylinder Deactivation.


Is this where you’ll charge a PHEV Range Rover?



Discovery Vision Concept and Range Rover Long wheelbase Hybrid show up in Beijing

These just popped up on the Land Rover Media site.  The Discovery Vision Concept looks to just be computer animated, same as the other official pictures.  The Taklamakan Orange presented here makes that more apparent with a little zooming.vision-concept-version2-large

It looks better in these tweets from the Beijing show:

And here’s a Range Rover Long Wheelbase Hybrid:


The Asian shows always get fun and different colors from Jaguar Land Rover.
