The New-Generation Land Rover Discovery Sport Will Be Half Electric

The new Land Rover Discovery Sport will be built of the upgraded platform for better driving and have a larger trunk. Lithium-ion batteries for new hybrid versions will be placed under the bottom.

Hybrid transmissions are one of the main innovations of the future Discovery Sport line-up. The hybrid powertrain will include a new 3-cylinder Ingenium engine, working in pair with an electric motor.

A 300-volt plug-in version will get lithium-ion batteries mounted under the central section and CO2 emission level of up to 45 g / km.

It is still unknown whether cheaper hybrid models will use electrified turbochargers or starters generators. Due to tougher emission regulations in Europe the new models will come in handy.

Among other things the car will receive a projection of road closed by the front end and a new smart rear-view mirror.

The new Land Rover Discovery Sport will be likely shown by the beginning of 2019.
