Concept_e PHEV: This plug-in hybrid concept pairs a gasoline engine with a larger, more powerful electric motor.

The Range Rover Sport used to show off this system houses its lithium-ion battery under the load bay.

Concept_e BEV: This all-electric powertrain has been designed to fit Jaguar Land Rover’s lightweight aluminum platform, which underpins its latest vehicles, including the Range Rover and the Jaguar XF and XE. The Concept_e BEV uses a 70-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, located in the vehicle floor, to power one electric motor on each axle--a similar setup to the Tesla "D" all-wheel drive system offered in the Model S and standard in the Model X.
