The average UK driver travels less than 30 miles per day, and the average Electric Land Rover PHEV (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle) today has a range between 27 - 62 miles* depending on the model and type of electric vehicle. If you only use your car to get from A to B, you can switch to Electric for those shorter journeys and back to your petrol engine for longer journeys.

Those who make longer trips or those travelling for business could benefit from a hybrid vehicle. That will help you reduce your carbon footprint without encountering range anxiety.

Remember, the UK government is committed to phasing out the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2035.

By switching to electric now, you could benefit from grants and tax exemptions designed to encourage greener driving.


The benefits of electric cars

The future is electric. As the proportion of EVs on UK roads increases, so will the benefits of driving them. Make the switch today and you can enjoy:

  • A reduced carbon footprint
  • Congestion charge reductions in some locations
  • Lower long-term running costs than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles
  • Government grants and tax exemptions
  • Free parking provided by some local authorities
  • Less noise pollution
  • Access to thousands of public UK charging stations

Land Rover's Journey to Zero Emissions

Land Rover have a long-term goal of net zero emissions and have reduced the average amount of energy used to build one of their vehicles by a third from 2007. Land Rover PHEV vehicles also help to reduce emissions when you switch between your driving modes, and give you the power to reduce your impact on our planet with every journey.

  • KEEPING YOUR BATTERY CHARGED

    Waking up to a full battery will help maximise your electric range throughout the day. The quickest, most convenient and cost-effective way to charge is by simply plugging into your home charger.
  • USING OFF-PEAK AND RENEWABLE ENERGY

    You can reduce the impact of charging your PHEV by doing so at night when there is less demand on the national grid. This could also mean you benefit from a substantially cheaper EV tariff and a renewable energy promise from several providers to increase their renewable energy used in the grid.
  • DRIVING IN FULL EV MODE

    At the press of a button, your Land Rover PHEV can switch between petrol and electric power. Driving in full Electric Vehicle (EV) mode is a simple way to get from A to B with zero tailpipe emissions on shorter journeys.

Hybrid Vehicles vs Electric Cars: Key differences

You’re likely to choose from three types of EV:

  • All Electric - From 2024 you will be able to choose from the first of six new all-electric Land Rovers, including Range Rover. This is a significant step in the Land Rover vision to dramatically reduce pollution and achieve a truly sustainable future.
  • Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) - A petrol engine and electric motor combined. Switch from pure electric commuting with zero tailpipe emissions, to a mix of petrol and electric power for lower emissions on longer journeys. Charging the electric side of your PHEV is easy from home or at your destination.
  • Mild Hybrid electric vehicles (MHEVs) - No charging required. Supported by a small electric motor, Land Rover MHEVs enhance the efficiency and refinement of their petrol and diesel engines by reusing energy collected through deceleration and regenerative braking.

The cost of owning and running an electric Land Rover

Electric Vehicles are currently more expensive than traditional ICE Vehicles to buy upfront due to their advanced technology. As time goes on, this gap is closing. As with any vehicle, buying second hand can work out cheaper.

The day-to-day costs of running an EV often works out much cheaper than those of fossil fuel cars. Depending on where you charge, electricity costs less than petrol or diesel. You will also have fewer servicing and repair costs on average.

Because the UK government is keen to phase out petrol and diesel vehicles, there could be grants available to help you switch to an EV.

Looking after your EV is much easier than maintaining a traditional car.

Making sure your battery stays charged is easy, the UK has tens of thousands of public charging points.

 

How to charge and maintain your Electric or Hybrid Land Rover

The UK’s public charging point network supports a range of EVs, making it a viable option even without a charger at home.
