WHAT KIND OF DRIVER ARE YOU?


INTRA CITY

If you use your vehicle for short journeys within a city, such as for the school run or for shopping, then a petrol engine would be a suitable choice. You rarely drive on motorways, and do minimal mileage, mainly in built-up areas.​

INTER CITY

For high-mileage drivers predominantly taking longer journeys on motorways and rarely travelling within the city, a diesel engine would be a considered option.

TOWN AND COUNTRY

For those living outside the city, but regularly commuting by motorway, a diesel engine would be suitable for consideration. Jaguar’s EU6 Diesels are exempt from the proposed charges in Low Emission Zones.

PLEASURE DRIVE

If you love the thrill and drive mainly for pleasure on country roads, and rarely in urban environments, then either a diesel or petrol would suit you.


INGENIUM ENGINES

Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium diesel engine achieves emissions from 106g/km of CO2 in the Jaguar XE, our most efficient vehicle ever built.​

KEY FACTS


EURO 6 ENGINES

Our EU6 diesel engines are among the cleanest in the world. Their emission levels are comparable to petrol engines but with CO2 emissions that are 20-25 per cent lower.


NITROGEN OXIDES

All our vehicles, from September 2015 onwards, feature advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e. AdBlue) which helps reduce NOX emissions.


DPFs

Between 2004 and 2016, our NOX emissions have been reduced by more than 84 per cent. 

Highly efficient DPFs (Diesel Particulate Filters) in our vehicles capture 99.9 per cent of all particles.


ULEZ

Our EU6 engines are exempt from the proposed Ultra Low Emission Zone daily charge (ULEZ), proposed by Transport for London in the UK.
