    It’s expected both models will use a 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol power engine combined with an Electric Drive Module (EDM). Capable of around 30 miles on electric-only, the powerplant delivers a combined output of close to 500bhp: the petrol is expected to produce around 295bhp, with the EDM adding a further 201bhp.

    Speaking today at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Speth’s confirmation of the hybrids comes just days after Jaguar Land Rover revealed every model it makes will be available with an electrified powertrain option from 2020.

    The first model to appear will be a hybrid Range Rover, which will be followed next year by the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace.
