The new architecture has also been designed to support electrification. The new Range Rover Evoque, along with the traditional IC engine also features a 48-volt mild hybrid technology (a first for the Land Rover brand).

The mild-hybrid tech stores the energy released during the car's deceleration to store it in the under-floor batteries. The energy is transferred through the engine-mounted belt-integrated starter generator.

The engine is also designed in a way that it shuts off, at speed below 17km/h. However, when pulling away, the stored energy is deployed to assist the engine for more acceleration. The engine in question is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol unit churning out 197bhp and 280Nm of peak torque.
