Confused

Isn’t the f type a restyled discovery sport

They share the same d7 platform, engines, electronics, in control system, software updates and dealerships.
Just different styling, and setup for a more road biased use ?
I assume you mean F-Pace, not F-Type (the sports car), but it’s the E-Pace that shares a platform with the DS and Evoque. Made in Austria by Magna though, not at Halewood.

Although I’ve not heard that it’s been updated to the new DS2 platform, nor if a PHEV is coming - maybe the E-Pace volumes aren’t high enough and it’ll quietly die without the update.

Velar (L560) sits on the same D7a Platform as F-Pace (X761), XF (X260) and, perversely, XE (X760)

Yep , I’m waiting for the FPace variant to be tested by owners for a couple of years first , but I must add the new nose job it’s had in design looks bloody awful imo.

Might just keep mine a while longer , it’s 3 years old next Feb and never missed a beat . I also Pondered an SVR 😍but looks like that’s been dropped of the website. I’ve got a hybrid bike so I’m doing my bit.😀

Maybe JLR are not selling those big engines to keep their C02 down for the EU figures?

Wahey a delivery date of 30th October confirmed. We got here in the end! I guess the revised numbers are signed off and fingers crossed this car works as it should LOL

Hopefully that confirms my dealers email last week, my P300e is being built 1st week of December & delivered around Christmas, I would have liked to have seen some press reviews first though

Latest news from JLR on the delivery delays and the situation regarding EV range and CO2 emissions.

  • JLR has halted sales of DS & Evoque PHEVs as it works to "reclassify the emissions ratings" of both cars.
  • P300e plug-in hybrids "are not currently available to order" but JLR will resume order taking on 26th October 2020.
  • Stated CO2 emissions are to rise from the figures given when the Evoque and DS went on sale in April.
  • Lowest CO2 for the DS will be 44 g/km.
  • Electric range will 43 km, previously quoted as 66 km.
  • JLR said it aims to improve those figures in "future versions".
"Work is ongoing, as the business emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, to deliver the extended electric range and lower CO2 figures.

Source 2: Today News

Meanwhile, a well-known journalist has emailed to say that JLR is looking for a CO2 partner to reduce the impact of EU pollution fines. If it finds one (Renault is available) it is believed that this would ease the backlog on deliveries and lead to an earlier resumption of order taking.

If there is anyone on the forum with inside knowledge, maybe this would be a good time to confirm or refute the above.
