Just hope they haven’t put the car together with aluminium bolts that are prone to fail!
Nothing wrong with aluminium bolts, it's the combination of aluminium and steel that Land Rover have always struggled with.

I think JLR need Donna's spell checker before they produce Stickers for the side of the car!
I'm not their "Reader" but that's the same vehicle as the photos I started with: Evoque PHEV seen in the wild...
Looks like the sticker may have dropped off on one side - very un-Land Rover like :rolleyes:

The Advert was for a Toyota thing, and that's petrol hybrid
Mine is a Merc and currently as I understand, one of the very few Diesel Hybrids available.

All this talk about electric vehicles reminds me when I work for British Railways Research Department and I think it was 1970's we had some electric vehicles (cars) in to test / evaluate, I was not on that project but I think the lack of any good mileage let them down as the battery development needed more work.


Another project was work on a 'Sodium-Sulphur' battery to run Electric trains on, The operating temperatures of 350 °C


That project was dropped after the fire brigade was called out many, many times when the battery burst in to flames (Highly toxic fumes).
