NEW DIESEL, PETROL OR ELECTRIC?

Our current petrol and new diesel engines are the cleanest and most efficient we’ve ever produced. Our new electric powertrain is the future of driving. Which one is right for you?

THE CHOICE IS YOURS
NEW DIESEL
Cleaner than ever, today’s Jaguar diesel engines offer improved fuel efficiency with torque characteristics suitable for off-road terrain and towing. It’s a combination that creates truly dependable long-distance performance.
PETROL
Offering a dynamic and agile drive, our new breed of petrol engines honour the legacy of Jaguar’s iconic on-road responsiveness, while delivering impressively low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
ELECTRIC (EV)
Our sophisticated, all-electric powertrains provide high performance with zero tailpipe emissions. Powered by a pair of electric motors with a battery that is recharged using regenerative braking and a plug-in charge point, EV is the electrifying future of Jaguar.
THE KEY BENEFITS OF NEW DIESEL, PETROL AND ELECTRIC
LOW CO<sub>2</sub> EMISSIONS
Jaguar's new diesel engines produce around 20% lower CO2 emissions than petrol engines. In fact, since 2002, buyers choosing diesel engines have saved almost 3 million tonnes of CO2 from going into the atmosphere.
EU6d-TEMP AND REAL DRIVING EMISSIONS (RDE) COMPLIANT
Jaguar’s new diesel vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions. This means they are exempt from Transport for London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charges.
REDUCED NITROGEN OXIDE EMISSIONS (NO<sub>x</sub>)
Since September 2015, all Jaguar diesel models have featured advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e. AdBlue) which helps to dramatically reduce NOx emissions.
ENHANCED FUEL EFFICIENCY
Diesel engines deliver around 20% better fuel economy than their petrol counterparts. So if you frequently cover 12,000 miles a year or more, it’s likely to be the most cost-effective choice for you.
EU6d-TEMP AND REAL DRIVING EMISSIONS (RDE) COMPLIANT
New Jaguar petrol vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions. This means they are exempt from Transport for London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charges.
A DYNAMIC DRIVING EXPERIENCE
With smooth and responsive power delivery, Jaguar petrol engines offer our most spirited driving experiences. They’re an exhilarating combination of effortless performance and stirring sounds at all speeds.
LOW PARTICULATES
Our latest petrol engines are equipped with highly efficient filters to capture and store ultrafine particles as exhaust gases pass through them. This helps to lower the amount of tailpipe emissions released into the atmosphere.
CHEAPER UPFRONT COSTS
Although diesel engines typically offer greater fuel efficiency, the cheaper upfront costs on equivalent petrol engines can often prove a smarter choice for lower mileage drivers taking shorter journeys.
ZERO TAILPIPE EMISSIONS
Achieving zero tailpipe CO2 emissions at the point of use and a range of up to 292 miles per charge, the Jaguar I‑PACE doesn't just cost much less to fill with fuel, it also has no exhaust emissions. With more and more renewable energy being added to the grid every year, Jaguar I‑PACE gets cleaner as it gets older.
CONVENIENCE AND ACCESSIBILITY
In many cities, electric vehicles are now permitted to use vehicle lanes and parking spaces where other vehicle access is restricted. They are also exempt from any emissions-based charges.
GOVERNMENT INCENTIVES
Electric vehicles qualify for benefits provided by government, local authorities and businesses supporting the move to the world’s cleanest powertrains. This includes notably lower taxation rates than petrol and diesel equivalents.
ECONOMICAL RUNNING COSTS
The relative low cost of electricity means pure electric cars are cheaper to refuel. And with fewer moving powertrain parts to preserve, they’re also cheaper to maintain.
OUR MOST EFFICIENT ENGINES EVER
Ingenium is Jaguar Land Rover's family of engines designed for effortless performance, refinement and efficiency. With advanced technology and all-aluminium construction, Ingenium balances impressive power with strong fuel economy.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a powertrain?

A vehicle powertrain is every component that turns an energy source (fuel/battery) in to movement via engine / electric motor, transmission, drive shafts, differentials and axles.

The most common vehicle powertrain systems are petrol, diesel, battery electric vehicle (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).

How long does it take to recharge an electric car?

Jaguar I-PACE is equipped with a 7kW single phase AC on-board charger, which can fully charge the vehicle overnight while you sleep and deliver up to 22 miles of range per hour. The fastest and most convenient way to charge at home is using a wallbox, which can restore the energy used from the average daily commute in under 2 hours.

When using a domestic socket, charging rates are slower than a wallbox (up to 7 miles of range per hour), but are sufficient to cover the average daily commute of 38 miles if the vehicle is charged overnight.

When away from home, the best way to get a quick top up of your battery’s charge for those long journeys is with a public DC charger – a typical 50kW charger can deliver up to 168 miles of range per hour. Some networks already offer faster 100-150 kW chargers, and most networks are planning upgrades in the near future.

What is the range of an electric car?

Thanks to a high-tech lithium-ion battery, which has a capacity of 90kWh, Jaguar I‑PACE has a range of up to 292 miles* on the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).

The WLTP is a process that measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions in passenger vehicles in Europe. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour.

What are the advantages of diesel over petrol?

The higher energy density of the fuel, and the way energy is released during combustion, means diesel can offer a greater efficiency. If you are driving 12,000 miles a year or more, a diesel is likely to be the most cost-effective choice.

Generally, a diesel engine offers more torque than a petrol engine, which means its power is more suitable for conquering off-road terrain and towing.

How does Jaguar Land Rover reduce vehicle emissions?

At Jaguar Land Rover, we have invested over £1billion into our state-of-the-art engine manufacturing centre to develop a family of more efficient petrol and diesel engines.

Are diesel engines clean?

As of September 2018, all our EU and EEA diesel engines meet tough EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) regulations. This means that our new diesel engines are so clean they can pass freely through the Ultra-Low Emission Zones that enforce a financial penalty on drivers emitting high levels of pollutants.

By producing our cleanest engines to date, we are significantly reducing environmental impact.

What is a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and why is it important?

In order to meet stringent emissions regulations, introduced in 2009, all new diesel vehicles are fitted with an exhaust filter. These are also known as Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs). DPFs efficiently capture and store particles from exhaust gases, helping to lower tailpipe emissions.

*EV range figures are based upon production vehicle over a standardised route. Range achieved will vary dependent on vehicle and battery condition, actual route and environment and driving style.
The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.
