Your electric future is coming. The new Range Rover Evoque Mild Hybrid uses battery technology to cut fuel consumption, reduce emissions and improve refinement – without you having to plug it in.
It’s a hybrid car which is also known as an MHEV (Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle). Cleverly it combines Land Rover’s efficient Ingenium petrol and diesel engines with a powerful underfloor battery so the engine can be turned off when coasting, braking, or stationary.
New Evoque is Land Rover’s first mild hybrid. Its efficient electrified powertrain makes itan ideal SUV for driving in congested, stop-start city traffic.

Cars switching off when stopped is nothing new. The Evoque MHEV moves the game on in a big way – it harvests the energy normally lost during deceleration and stores it in the underfloor battery.
At speeds below 17km/h (11mph), while under braking, the engine will shut off to increase efficiency, restarting as soon as it’s needed. This technology reduces fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions, now as low as 50.4mpg (5.6l/100km) and CO2emissions of 149g/km (NEDC Equivalent)**.
The compact luxury SUV’s 48V Lithium-ion battery can store up to 200wh of energy for the MHEV system without compromising cabin space. Separate from the normal vehicle battery, it generates up to 140Nm of torque to help acceleration. When the driver accelerates, this stored energy is redeployed to assist the engine.
