New PHEV additions

Post by Haybrd » Mon Apr 27, 2020 12:36 pm

I was excited to see the new PHEV offerings from JLR announced this week for the Disco Sport and Evoque!

I’m guessing when the general lifecycle update of the Velar comes out it will also include this offering which will be a potentially appealing one next time around.

As a Chevy Volt owner, I'm a huge fan of PHEVs and I'd really like an upscale option with similar capabilities. I currently have 50-60 miles of electric range, but 25-35 seems to be a good compromise for weight/cost/range.

I agree. The range isn’t great but for a vehicle this size it’s a step in the right direction.

Here in the U.K. I guess a benefit could be moving away from diesel more especially as some cities look to van diesel powered cars in the future. Most of my journeys are longer ones so diesel makes sense, but I still use my Velar for short hops into town so then being able to switch it into EV mode and just use that would be great.

EVs are a blast around town. Instant torque.
