Based on the Evoque S, the Special Edition has a carefully curated selection of features and is available with 20-inch five split-spoke Gloss Dark Grey wheels with a contrast Diamond Turned finish, fitted alongside a fixed panoramic roof, premium carpet mats, illuminated treadplates and premium LED headlights with sweeping indicators. The Lafayette Edition has a full range of engines, including the highly efficient P300e plug-in hybrid electric powertrain.
he first plug-in hybrid electric powertrain for Evoque – the P300e – delivered new levels of efficiency and an EV range of up to 55km (34 miles) earlier this year. The range of advanced Ingenium petrol and diesel engines has now been enhanced to provide greater choice and efficiency. CO2 figures have been improved across the board and the introduction of the first 1.5-litre Ingenium three-cylinder petrol engine for the Range Rover Evoque – the P160 – offers customers an efficient entry point. The new engine is the latest member of the modular, flexible Ingenium engine family, which now has three-, four- and six-cylinder variants.
The three-cylinder Ingenium engine is the same as in the advanced P300e PHEV. This powertrain uses the 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, paired with an Electric Rear Axle Drive motor for a combined power output of 309PS and impressive fuel economy of up to 2.0l/100km (141mpg) and electric driving range of up to 55km (34 miles). The P300e powertrain delivers the best of all worlds with strong performance, refinement and capability, with just 44g/km1 of CO2 and the ability to charge to 80 per cent in only 30 minutes2. Two updated, efficient next-generation four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines feature Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology, available in 165PS and 200PS outputs.
Badged P300e, the Evoque plug-in hybrid is based on Land Rover’s stateof- the-art Premium Transverse architecture, which was designed to support electrification while maintaining signature off-road capability. The new plug-in hybrid P300e model joins the existing 48-volt mild-hybrid in the range, bringing new levels of efficiency to the premium compact SUV sector.
The Evoque P300e offers sustainable performance by combining a 200PS (147kW) 1.5-litre three-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 109PS (80kW) electric motor integrated into the rear axle and powered by a 15kWh lithium-ion battery located below the rear seats. Performance and capability are uncompromised, with acceleration of 0-100km/h in just 6.4 seconds (0-60mph in 6.1 seconds).
Efficiency is remarkable: the Range Rover Evoque P300e emits just 44g/km of CO2 and has an all-electric, zero tailpipe emission range of up to 55km (34 miles)1, with fuel economy of 2.0l/100km (141mpg)
The lightweight aluminium engine – 37kg lighter than the four-cylinder – delivers strong performance and refinement with impressive fuel economy. This small-capacity engine achieves exceptionally low levels of friction, which contribute to its excellent efficiency. The exhaust manifold is integrated into the aluminium cylinder head, contributing to the rapid warm-up times and minimising the distance from the exhaust ports to the turbocharger’s turbine wheel for improved responsiveness. The three-cylinder configuration delivers a better flow of exhaust gases, ensuring the turbine wheel delivers boost pressure almost instantaneously. A highly efficient Watercooled Charge Air Cooler means the density of air being drawn into the combustion chambers remains high, further enhancing performance and efficiency across the engine’s operating range.
The three-cylinder – like the four-cylinder mild hybrid models – also features a belt-integrated startergenerator (BISG) unit. This delivers regenerative braking, recharging the battery on the overrun, and also enables smoother, quieter and faster stop-start operation than a traditional starter motor.
