New Delhi :
Land Rover is reportedly looking to introduce a range of petrol engines for its SUVs in India. The recent ban on registration of vehicles with diesel engines having a capacity of 2,000cc and above by the Delhi government has given a boost to the demand for petrol cars in the country.
Seeing this shift in the market, Land Rover has decided to expand its petrol SUV line-up.
Presently, only selected variants of Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are available with the option of a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 petrol engine.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) plans to bring in 2 petrol engine options for its Land Rover SUVs - a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged motor which produces 237bhp and a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 unit that has an output of 335bhp.
Range Rover Evoque on the other hand is likely to be powered by 2.0-litre four-cylinder, turbo-petrol motor which will come paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox.
While Discovery, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover also stand a chance of getting supercharged 3.0-litre V6 unit that is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission box.
