Just wondering when there will be some real-life feedback on the new engine with performance comments and real-world fuel economy. My order is placed but still interested in what I can look forward to
I don't think it is a case of Euro 5 engines not allowed to be registered after 01/09 but rather not allowed being manufactured.Chris b said:Thanks gents - the old engine (not Euro 6) cannot be registered after 1 September but I thought that since the engine has been in prototypes (DS and Jaguar XE) for some time, there might be the odd one in dealer hands and since they can be sold at anytime (don't have to wait for September if they have early engines, somebody is going to be the first pubic owner! The Halewood engine and final line tooling and fixtures will change during the summer shutdown which is what they did with the body tooling and assembly lines last July when Freelander stopped production.
I would reckon that all of the EU is the same, i.e. only Euro 6 can be imported.Chippy911 said:According to my understanding Euro 5 engines can certainly still be built and sold in vehicles in those countries where the regulations still allow it.
Clearly JLR need to have the most modern engines in their vehicles if they are to succeed in the market.
Interestingly enough their have placed a full page advert towards the front part of the latest issue of the major German auto magazine (Auto Motor & Sport) just talking about this very fact i.e. very modern, lighter, more efficient and cleaner engines.
Well, could be quite quiet for new registrations from JLR in Septmeber then with a 65 plate :?: :?: :?:IanH said:The Ingenium engine (apparently) wont be available for test drives until 16 Sept. I was in my dealer this week and even they have no more information than that!
Really? I should hopefully have mine before that as my dealer has told me my build date is the 26th August.IanH said:The Ingenium engine (apparently) wont be available for test drives until 16 Sept. I was in my dealer this week and even they have no more information than that!
