CHARGING A PLUG-IN HYBRID (PHEV)

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

With a Land Rover plug-in hybrid (PHEV), most of your charging is done from the comfort of home.

It’s usually the cheapest, most convenient way to charge – as easy as plugging in your phone – and you’ll never need to visit the fuel pumps for local trips around town.

  • SPEED THINGS UP WITH A HOME CHARGER

    The fastest way to charge your PHEV at home is with a professionally installed home charger. The government’s Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme can help support the cost of your installation.

  • SAFE TO CHARGE, WHATEVER THE WEATHER

    Our recommended home chargers are safe to use in all weathers. Come rain or shine, you’ll always be ready to go electric.

HOME CHARGING CAN SAVE YOU MONEY

Plugging in is not only incredibly convenient, it’s cheaper than running a petrol or diesel car every day. You will also typically save more money charging at home than charging away from home. Using an off-peak electricity tariff can reduce your costs further still.

    OUR RECOMMENDED HOME CHARGING PARTNERS

    Jaguar Land Rover, in partnership with electric vehicle charging authority GridCars, has laid the foundation for the future of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in South Africa know as the Jaguar Powerway. The R30-million infrastructure investment will make day-to-day travel, as well as longer day trips and even very long journeys possible for owners of electric vehicles. GridCars will provide you with the most comprehensive charging capabilities and minimum installation lead-time for your area.
    Since their establishment in 2009, GridCars have become renowned as an independent authority on Electric Vehicle Charging Service Equipment (EVSE) and Charging Station Infrastructure and Management Systems. GridCars was also a founding member of the Electric Vehicle Industry Association. Today, almost a decade later, they continue to play a leading role in building the EV and eMobility industry in South Africa through engagement with vehicle manufacturers and various other stakeholders.

CHARGING AWAY FROM HOME

TOP UP AT YOUR NEXT STOP

As the public charging infrastructure continues to grow, there are now more places than ever to conveniently charge your PHEV away from home.

Charging points at many public car parks, shopping centres and motorway services make it easy to top up while you’re parked up. And if you’re spending a few hours in the office, workplace charging can have you fully charged by lunchtime.

The majority of destination charging points around towns and cities require the use of your own charging cable. This is included with your Land Rover PHEV as standard. And just like at home, it can be used in all weathers.

TRACK YOUR CHARGING PROGRESS ANYWHERE

MONITOR AND CONTROL FROM YOUR PHONE

Once you’ve simply plugged in and walked away, your Land Rover’s InControl App1 neatly sends your charging status to your mobile. So wherever you are, you can plan your time productively and be ready to get back out there without missing a beat.

At home, your app’s timed charging feature can even be used to lock into the daily window of off-peak electricity and substantially cheaper EV tariffs offered by many home energy providers.

CHARGING TIMES FOR PHEV

Our figures for rapid DC charging points – typically found at motorway service stations and main roads – are quoted up to 80%. This is because the charging speed slows down significantly above 80% to protect the battery and optimise its life.

Vehicles Maximum electric range AC home and public charging (7kW) 0 – 100% Rapid DC charging (50kW) 0 – 80%
New Range Rover PHEV TBC km From 5 hours2 -
New Range Rover Sport PHEV Up to 113 km†† From 5 hours2 From 40 minutes2
Range Rover Velar PHEV Up to 61 km†† From 2 hours 16 minutes2 From 30 minutes2
Range Rover Evoque PHEV Up to 68 km†† From 2 hours 12 minutes2 From 30 minutes2
Land Rover Discovery Sport PHEV Up to 64 km†† From 2 hours 12 minutes2 From 30 minutes2
Land Rover Defender PHEV Up to 55 km†† From 2 hours 30 minutes2 From 30 minutes2

DOMESTIC SOCKETS PROVIDE ADDED REASSURANCE

If you’re away for longer periods and no home charger is available, your standard domestic plug socket used for household electrical items will also charge your vehicle at a much slower rate – typically 0-100% from seven hours.

For charging your vehicle using a domestic socket, a Mode 2 cable is supplied as standard.

CO2, fuel economy, energy consumption and range figures may vary according to factors such as driving styles, environmental conditions, load, wheel fitment, accessories fitted, actual route and battery condition. Range figures are based upon production vehicle over a standardised route.
