in response to falling diesel sales and the push for more electric cars for cleaner cities, Land Rover has created the Range Rover Evoque Hybrid model, called the 300e, it's built around a 1.5 litre 3 cylinder petrol engine (exactly the same as the 2.0 Ingenium petrol but with a cylinder lopped off the end) that produces 197 bhp that drives the front wheels, and then at the rear there is a separate electric motor that has a power of 107 bhp, together with a 15kWh battery. When the motors both run in tandem they get a combined 300 horsepower, giving a fast feeling 0-60 time of just 6.1 seconds as the electric torque off the line is really noticeable. More importantly is the electric-only range on that large battery which is up to 41 miles on the new WLTP official figures with CO2 down to 32g/km, and the car will run on electric power alone at speeds of up to 84 mph, with the petrol engine kicking in at higher speeds or bigger throttle openings when more power is needed. If your daily commute consists of mainly shorter distances of 15-20 miles each way or less in traffic at slower speeds plus the occasional longer journey, and you have the ability to recharge at home overnight then the new Discovery Sport Hybrid could be ideal for you and save you a fortune in fuel bills, and the low CO2 means company car tax will be very cheap for business users. If however your journeys mainly consist of long runs at high speeds and lots of motorway stuff, then the diesel will probably still be the better option.
