"The Range Rover Velar's powertrain program, however, offers a few more novelties in the 2021 vintage. For example, 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engines from the Ingenium family are making their debut under the Velar hood. The modern diesel and gasoline units shine with smooth development of their abundant power and contemporary efficiency and environmental compatibility. MHEV, the 48-volt mild hybrid technology, plays a key role in this, delivering enhanced performance with reduced emissions and fuel consumption. The new in-line six-cylinder engine, developed and produced in-house by Jaguar Land Rover, is available in the Velar as a D300 diesel variant with 221 kW (300 hp) or as a P400 gasoline engine with 294 kW (400 hp) - coupled as standard on the R-Dynamic with electronically controlled air suspension for pampering Range Rover comfort. Combined with the latest engine technology, the MHEV package ensures the desired and required balance of performance and efficiency. The mild hybrid system uses a belt-driven starter-generator to capture energy normally lost during braking or deceleration and channel it to the 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack located underneath the trunk. There, the energy is ready for later use: for example, to support the gasoline engine during acceleration or for an even smoother and faster response of the start-stop system."
