Hybrid and Electric Land Rover FAQs

Land Rover already has a  range of Hybrid Electric (MHEV and PHEV) vehicles. From 2024 you will be able to choose from the first of six new all-electric Land Rovers. This is a significant step in our vision to dramatically reduce pollution and achieve a truly sustainable future.

Land Rover, who make Range Rover vehicles are in the process of a major product overhaul. From 2024 you will be able to choose from the first of six new all-electric Land Rovers. This is a significant step in our vision to dramatically reduce pollution and achieve a truly sustainable future.

 

The latest Range Rover Velar is a Plug-in Hybrid Electric.This means the Velar has a petrol engine and electric motor combined. Enabling you to 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.

To encourage people to switch to electric vehicles (EVs), grants have been made available to help you buy a new EV and install a charging point in your home.

These grants are likely to become less common over time as we approach the 2030 deadline. Learn more about which vehicles qualify for a grant on the GOV.UK website. You may also qualify for help with installing a charging station in your home via an OZEV grant.

Electric and Hybrid cars are better for the environment than a petrol or diesel car. An electric car will emit less greenhouse gases and pollutants over it’s life, even after you take into consideration the production and generation of the electricity needed to power it.

The costs of both electricity and fuel will vary across the country, however the cost of filling up an electric car will generally be cheaper.

At the moment, all-electric cars are exempt from congestion charges. Some areas are introducing clean air zones, however any vehicle that is ultra low emissions will be exempt from charges for driving in these zones.

Electric vehicles sales are continuing to increase, a trend which is set to continue with the Government ban on the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030 looming as part of its aim to emitting virtually zero carbon by 2050.

The Low Emission Zones or LEZ operates all day every day (including Christmas Day, unlike the ULEZ). It applies to larger specialist vehicles rather than regular cars, and ULEZ programmes only apply to London, but other cities have their own versions.

Clean air zones (CAZ) are being established in cities across the UK to tackle emissions. As of October 2021, cities with CAZ include:

• Glasgow
• Bath
• Birmingham

The following cities plan to establish CAZ in the very near future:

• Manchester
• Aberdeen
• Dundee
• Edinburgh
• Newcastle
• Sheffield

It’s very likely that these zones will become commonplace in most urban areas within the next few years. Check to see

if your local authority has any charges in place, along with when and where they apply.

When electric vehicle (EV) technology was much younger, early EV drivers worried about being caught out with a low battery and no charging station nearby. Today, cars have an improved range and the UK alone has thousand of public charging points. So-called ‘range anxiety’ isn’t a problem anymore.

The UK has tens of thousands of public charging stations for your electric vehicle (EV) with thousands more are being added each year. Locate, navigate and learn how to use more than 25,000 public charging points throughout the UK. Find your nearest Electric Car Charging Station.
