Auto Expo 2014: New techs for Range Rover Evoque


Auto Expo 2014 New techs for Range Rover Evoque (3)

One of the most successful Land Rover vehicles ever made, the Range Rover Evoque, makes a further leap forward with the introduction of a host of new technologies. These enhancements lower fuel consumption by up to 11.4 percent and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 9.5 percent* depending on model – and bring a range of new comfort, and convenience features.

Customers ordering vehicles from the 2014 range will benefit from newly-available features, including: a new 9-speed automatic transmission and detailed design enhancements.

First shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the ZF-9HP automatic transmission is among the world’s first 9-speed units fitted to a passenger car.  It has an ultra-fast response time, described by ZF as “below the threshold of perception” and an adaptive shift programme that quickly matches the driving style.  With a wide spread of ratios and improved efficiency, the new transmission delivers improved economy, reduced emissions, enhanced performance and greater comfort.

The Torque Vectoring by Braking feature, available across all powertrains, further enhances agility and safety by redirecting torque between all four wheels to counteract understeer. It features in Evoque’s standard four-wheel drive system.

“We are thrilled to be moving the Evoque on to the next stage and believe the exciting new technology, safety and convenience features make the 2014 Evoque an unbeatable choice for customers seeking the ultimate in compact SUV vehicles,” said Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar Land Rover, India.
