In a bid to become more environmentally friendly, Land Rover employs a team of specialist hybrid-electric technicians. This has been ongoing for some time and Land Rover hopes to launch this technology in their models in the near future.
Land Rover has set several targets that this technology must achieve:-
- It must apply to the entire Land Rover range
- It must produce a 30% improvement in economy without compromising off-road ability
- It must produce less than 150g/km of CO2 in a Freelander-sized vehicle
In order to achieve this, the technology is centred around an integrated electric rear axle that allows all four wheels to be powered by electricity alone – as this would maintain its off-road capabilities. The next generation Land Rovers will also be lighter to reduce CO2 emissions.
This new Land Rover hybrids are due to be launched towards the end of this year.
