Get acquainted with your Land Rover’s charging process in three minutes.
To connect to a charging point, your Land Rover Electric Hybrid (plug-in electric hybrid)uses a Combined Charging System (CCS). This is compatible with slower AC charging speeds, and on selected models, rapid DC charging speeds. Some other car manufacturers use different systems for charging such as CHAdeMO. These are less-widely used across the charging network and are incompatible with Land Rover Electric Hybrid (plug-in electric hybrid).
The top part of your vehicle’s CCS inlet is used for AC charging (up to 7kW). The connectors that fit into this are known as a Type 2 connectors and are compatible with your home charger, public AC charging points and domestic 3-pin plug sockets.
On selected models, the lower half of your vehicle’s CCS inlet features two pins that combine with three of the pins above to provide rapid DC charging (up to 50kW) typically on motorways and main roads. The two lower pins can be accessed by removing the lower socket cover.
Your PHEV is compatible with three types of charging cables for different power sources.
A Mode 3 charging cable connects your vehicle to home chargers (wall box) and public AC charging points. It features a Type 2 connector at both ends and measures five metres in length. Mode 3 charging cables are included with your Land Rover.
A Rapid DC charging cable is always attached to public charging points on motorways and main roads, so there’s no need to use your own cable. To charge, the cable’s connector must be plugged into both parts of your vehicle’s CCS inlet.
The Mode 2 charging cable connects your vehicle to domestic sockets using a Type 2 connector on one end and a three-pin plug on the other. Mode 2 cables measure five metres in length. Optional Mode 2 charging cables are not included with your Land Rover and can be purchased separately.
