Land Rover will add plug-in hybrid versions of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport by the end of the 2017 fiscal year in March. "We're looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market", said Tim Hannig, chief of Jaguar Land Rover Classic.
The tyres' increased side-wall height reduces contact pressure and improves performance on soft surfaces.
All that extra urge is supported by Hydraulic Active Roll Control (H-ARC) suspension, a first for the Discovery SVX.
To support these changes, the control software for the car's eight-speed automatic gearbox and Terrain Response 2 system has been tweaked, with new calibration that also optimises the power steering system to match the SVX's capabilities. Discovery SVX also features a model-first pistol shifter in place of the drive select rotary shifter to offer the driver optimum control of gear selection in off-road manoeuvres.
Making its debut at the Frankfurt motor show this week, the company says this is its ultimate Discovery iteration and the first Land Rover to bear the SVX moniker, which carries the cachet of a 525 horsepower 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine so come Friday night, you can show those Al Faya dunes who the daddy is.
Once lauded as "the most lovely vehicle in the world" by Enzo Ferrari, the new E-type Zero keeps the classic Jaguar styling while introducing a bespoke electric powertrain that produces up to 220kW of power, according to The Verge.
Furthermore, visual differentiation includes an exclusive satin Tectonic Grey paint finish, a unique colour and material combination of Lunar and Light Oyster with Rush Orange accents inside, and X logo perforations on the SVX branded seats.
Discovery is now available with JLR's efficient 300HP, four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine. The new engine produces 400Nm of torque and Carbon dioxide emissions from 222g/km.
Every Discovery will get a 10-inch display with the Touch Pro infotainment system and SE models and above will benefit from a faster 4G wi-fi connection that up to eight devices can connect to. Meanwhile, a new Cabin Air Ionisation system improves interior air quality.
