PHEV is followed by more MHEV - Land Rover has recently added a plug-in hybrid version to the Discovery Sport with the P300e. With the 2021 model year, further mild hybrid drives are now being added - including highly efficient and electrified diesels from the latest Ingenium generation. The two new 2.0 liter MHEV four-cylinder diesels in the Discovery Sport deliver 120 kW (163 hp) or 150 kW (204 hp). In addition to high efficiency, the power units developed and produced by Jaguar Land Rover itself are particularly powerful and quiet. CO2 emissions from 131 g/km and combined standard consumption from 5.0 liters per 100 kilometers are further proof of the new diesel's progressive nature. In combination with four-wheel drive, the diesel engines are equipped with mild hybrid technology (MHEV): a belt-starter alternator and a battery unit into which energy normally lost during braking or deceleration is fed back. In addition to fuel consumption, MHEV technology also has a positive effect on stop-start behavior, which is much smoother in this case. Also new in the Discovery Sport series is the P290, a 2.0 liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that powers the new Discovery Sport R-Dynamic S special edition. The turbo gasoline engine effortlessly produces 213 kW (290 hp) and accelerates the exclusive edition from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds. This top-of-the-range engine is complemented by the 2.0 liter in-line four-cylinder mild hybrid P200 with 147 kW (200 hp) output and a maximum torque of 320 Nm max. torque at 1200-4000/min, as well as the P250 with 184 kW (249 hp) output and 365 Nm max. torque at 1300-4500/min.
