Yes totally understand, it will be interesting as time & miles increase as well as the engine loosening up, do you have the 20” wheels or the 18”s ?
I have the 18" wheels.

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

Hey Simon that’s great, keep us all posted as the miles roll up. Did you really mean 125mpg is achievable in hybrid mode as that sounds outstanding! The mpg for the hybrid mode is somewhat meaningless. If I do a 30 mile journey in hybrid mode and I set off with a full battery (range 30 miles) it wi...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

Okay, I got my Disco Sport p300e on Friday afternoon (30th Oct 2020). Very quick review: Visually it looks good. No faults found thus far. Very quiet to drive. Often I have no idea if it's the electric motor or the petrol engine (without looking at the dashboard) - that's under normal acceleration &...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

Update (close-of-business Friday, 23rd Oct): Movement is afoot. Today I was phoned by Land Rover Customer Services (as I'd emailed a complaint) and separately by my franchise garage with news on my (already built) Disco Sport p300e ... My vehicle has been 'Called down' [or whatever the expression is...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

As a potential PHEV owner this doesn't upset me in the slightest. Not sure why it upsets those that don't want a PHEV??? Same here Can’t wait to see a demonstrator. Or even be able to order one I THINK the issue is the changes from the specification/performance figures issued in spring. If I say to...

Re: Delays in deliveries - October 2020

On the Evoque Forum (thanks for the link Barnsh), the latest is ...

'Just been in contact with dealer about CO2 and delivery and he says that all MY20.5 models are being held in the JLR compound until the emission EV issue is sorted. My build date has been pushed to 08.01.21'

Oh heck!
