Part of Jaguar Land Rover’s plans to ensure it offers an electrified option on all new models from 2020, the Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain features a 48-volt mild hybrid system that reduces CO2 emissions and the work load on the engine.

The 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder features an electric supercharger and a twin-scroll turbocharger that, alongside Continuous Variable Valve Lift, boosts power. It’s paired with an electric motor that can harvest energy through deceleration and store it in a 48V battery. This energy can then be re-deployed through torque-assist.

As a result the unit offers official WLTP fuel economy of 30.4mpg (9.3L/100km) and CO2 emissions of 212g/km (NEDC Correlated). It also brings 550Nm of torque that powers the new Range Rover from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds and to a top speed of 140mph.

The new unit is available to order now, priced from £83,655 OTR in the UK.
