Mild hybrid technology for the new Land Rover Discovery Sport
Land Rover has updated the Discovery Sport compact premium SUV. According to the company, it “has been transformed to make it more efficient, technologically-advanced and practical, keeping its occupants safe and comfortable in any conditions”. Rawdon Glover, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: “Discovery Sport has been a stunning sales success for Land Rover, leading the way for the past three years and selling almost one hundred thousand models in the UK to date. The new model combines everything the Discovery family of vehicles embodies with a greater focus on modern life – whether through the new electrified 48-volt MHEV or PHEV powertrains, the latest technologies that keep you connected at all times, or the durable materials used throughout the cabin. The result is a compact seven-seat SUV that caters for every family, in every eventuality.”There is a completely new infotainment interface and the latest connectivity, plus a more flexible seating arrangement with up to 24 combinations. Under the skin, new electrified engines include a 48-volt mild hybrid from launch to help reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
