Re: EV battery range of Disco Sport & Evoque PHEV (p300e)

It really not clear even from the owners manual, in fact it doesn’t even say if pre conditioning raises the battery temperature at all from what I have read so far, it just says it helps the car start as well as heating the cabin ( in order to preserve battery power I presume) There are so many unkn...

Re: EV battery range of Disco Sport & Evoque PHEV (p300e)

Yes keep us posted Simon, I cancelled my PHEV order as I wanted to know the truth on the real world EV range as well as how good is the new hybrid technology in general b4 I parted with £50k, I just couldn’t trust LR after the D180 oil dilution fiasco.

Below is the latest from press release on the Toyota RAV4 PHEV, As you can see they have priced it at virtually the same as P300e DS.
