JLR hybrid vehicles bookings begin
New Delhi: Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) India on Tuesday said it has commenced bookings for plug-in hybrid version of the new Defender with deliveries expected to start in the first quarter of next fiscal.
The Defender P400e comes with a 2-litre petrol engine mated with a 105 kW electric motor. This helps the vehicle accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of 209 km/h. "We are extremely proud to introduce our first plug-in hybrid, the New Defender P400e in India, a vehicle that perfectly balances performance with efficiency, while retaining Land Rover's legendary off-road capability," Jaguar Land Rover India President and Managing Director Rohit Suri said in a statement.
This also reaffirms the company's commitment to introduction of electrified vehicles across the Jaguar Land Rover portfolio, he added. JLR India had opened bookings for Jaguar I-PACE last month. The new Defender P400e will be offered in four variants, the SE, HSE, X-Dynamic HSE and X on the Defender 110. (PTI)
