Badged P300e, the Discovery Sport plug-in hybrid is based on Land Rover's state-of-the-art Premium Transverse architecture, which was designed to support electrification while maintaining Land Rover's signature off-road capability. The new plug-in hybrid P300e model joins the existing 48-volt mild-hybrid, bringing new levels of efficiency to the premium compact SUV sector.

The new model offers sustainable performance by combining a 200PS (147kW) 1.5-litre three-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 109PS (80kW) electric motor integrated into the rear axle and powered by a 15kWh lithium-ion battery located below the rear seats. Performance and capability are uncompromised, with acceleration of 0-100km/h in just 6.6 seconds (0-60mph in 6.2 seconds).

The Land Rover Discovery Sport P300e can travel up to 55km (34 miles) using all-electric power and delivers fuel economy of up to 2.0l/100km (141mpg). Thanks to its electrified technology, it produces exceedingly low CO2 emissions of only 44g/km.

The new Land Rover Discovery Sport P300e is based on Land Rover's Premium Transverse Architecture, which was designed from the outset to accommodate plug-in and mild-hybrid technologies. The hardware is cleverly packaged beneath the cabin floor without compromising interior space.

The Electric Rear Axle Drive (ERAD) is powered by a compact 15kWh lithium-ion battery located below the rear seats. The battery is made up of 84 prismatic cells, arranged in seven 50Ah modules of 12, with a 6mm-thick steel undertray that protects the battery without compromising all-terrain capability.

The new Discovery Sport P300e PHEV model is available with a Mode 2 Home Charging Cable, enabling customers to fully charge the vehicle from a plug socket in 6hrs 42mins - perfect for overnight charging. For faster charging, the Mode 3 Charging Cable enables customers to plug in to a 7kW AC domestic wall box or AC public charge points: this enables charging from 0-80 per cent in just 1hr 24mins. The quickest charge times are achieved using the growing public charging network of DC charge points: at 32kW DC, 0-80 per cent takes just 30 minutes. The charge port flap is located on the rear fender - on the opposite side to the fuel filler flap.

A state-of-the-art 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is at the heart of the new Discovery Sport P300e. It's the latest member of the modular, flexible Ingenium engine family, which now has three-, four- and six-cylinder variants.

The lightweight aluminium engine - 37kg lighter than the four-cylinder - delivers strong performance and refinement with impressive fuel economy.

This small-capacity engine achieves exceptionally low levels of friction, which contribute to its excellent efficiency. The exhaust manifold is integrated into the aluminium cylinder head, contributing to the rapid warm-up times and minimising the distance from the exhaust ports to the turbocharger's turbine wheel for improved responsiveness.
