Land Rover YouTube guide to Disco Sport (including PHEV)

I'm guessing most people will have seen this. I've managed to miss it until this morning and wish I'd seen it when I first picked up my car. It's for the MY21 (with Pivi Pro). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ro9gwq3RFwo Well worth looking through. You might be surprised with a feature or two that yo...

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

Ambient temperature also massively affects the range. See this research paper. Nissan Leaf EV range of 150 km at 20 °C, while it reduces to about 85 km at 0 °C (i.e. range drops by over 40%): https://www.researchgate.net/publication/330251602_Effect_of_Ambient_Temperature_on_Electric_Vehicles%27_En...

Re: 'Fuel' running costs of PHEV (p300e)

Interesting analysis of the running costs. Have you worked out what proportion of your electricity consumption is linked to the car vs. the rest of your domestic electricity use? I have never been able to make these so called “electric car” tariffs work for me as the “day rate” is almost double the...

'Fuel' running costs of PHEV (p300e)

I've been running my Disco Sport p300e now for 2,000 miles. It was bought at the end of October 2020 and has mostly been used for local runs (shopping/commuting/school runs/etc.) with less mileage than expected due to lockdowns. We have British Gas Electric Car tariff (6p/Kwh midnight to 5:00 AM, 20...

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

32 miles achieved against a published 34. That’s approx 94%. I would be very happy with that. My I pace never achieved better than 83% Sorry I've not been very clear. I quote two main sets of numbers: 1. What the vehicle states is its range immediately after a full charge. That's the figure that va...

Re: Newbie - any other new PHEV owners on here? Charging issue

Hi everyone, This is my first post :) I've recently picked up my first LR - the Discovery Sport Plug in Hybrid, last month after a few months' wait! Are there any other hybrid owners here as I'd be interested to see your charging data if you have it. I seem to be having an issue with the charging a...

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

I have a Discovery sport phev (arrived in Nov) and I generally get around 24 miles on a full charge. It has been very cold recently and I believe that can affect the range. It’s definitely not close to the 40 miles advertised and I know these figures are often a bit unrealistic but I’m hoping it’ll...

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

Okay, quick update from me - had the vehicle about two month. Still love the car (Disco Sport p300e). I'd describe it as refined. Does so many things well. VERY impressed the seamless way it moves between EV & ICE as and when it needs to. In terms of charging up: The full charge varies (temp dependa...

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

Hi there - I can confirm that the p300e CAN decide to overrule the engine mode set by the driver (Hybrid, EV & Save. So for example: 1. When in Save (ICE only, to preserve battery life for later), it does occasionally use the electric motor. However, it does this sensibly, when it needs a bit more p...
