JLR's Diesel SUVs Get Top Marks In Independent Emissions Test
  • The AIR Index, which was devised to provide consumers with clear, independent data regarding vehicles’ real-world nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, gave 2-litre diesel versions of the Discovery Sport, Range Rover Evoque and E-PACE an ‘A’ rating. An 'A' rating signifies some of the lowest NOx emissions of any car on sale today.

    All three vehicles’ emissions were well under the 80-milligrams-per-kilometre limit set out by current legislation, with the E-PACE leading the way!

    All three cars were tested with the same 2-litre, 177 bhp diesel engine under the bonnet, but the E-PACE emitted a mere 14 mg of NOx per kilometre travelled - less than a quarter of the legal limit. The Evoque followed closely behind, with emissions of 17 mg/km, while the Discovery Sport achieved a still-creditable 34 mg/km.

    This is a fantastic achievement and reflects on Jaguar Land Rover's continued investment in class-leading technologies and their commitment to delivering ever-lower emissions without compromising the driving experience.
