P400e discontinued MY2024?
Has anyone heard why Landrover have discontinued the P400e on the MY2024 Defenders.
Apparently you can only order the p300e now

They're claiming it's because of the new European emissions rating....although I don't see them de-tuning the RRs!

I did notice at the time when the configurator was updated that the 90 standard petrol was also not there.

Guess it is the same engine minus the batteries as they don’t fit that body style.

Long time lurker overhere and had to respond to this, as I'm currently in the market for a hybrid Defender. I've heard through the grapevine, that they will bring the 6 cylinder PHEV from the RR(S) to the Defender line-up. Would make sense, as the PHEV is the strongest selling engine in countries/regions with strong regulations regarding (PH)EVs and the P300e just seems underpowered to me. They could solve that problem by adding a P460e or P550e.

That would make sense because the P300e looks underpowered now I would agree. Landrover seem to be pretty inconsistent with their defender engine roadmap since its launch.

Does make sense. The 4 pot with the hybrid was a no from me. Didn't even consider it.

I have a p400e and my thoughts are that it is is actually overpowered for what it is trying to be. My guess is that they are de-tuning it to lower emissions and sell more of them. No point in having an "environmentally friendly" tax-exempt car that still has a really high consumption. 2024 Defender 110 p400e HSE
