The 2024 Land Rover Discovery Sport is on the way and it will receive important upgrades. Not so long ago, the brand changed its priorities, so new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will see lots of novelties. Discovery SUV is a very capable model.
It combines a nice level of luxury with good off-road capabilities and a recognizable exterior design. Moreover, Discovery Sport looks even more premium and it still provides great performance. On the other hand, the turbo-four engine needs an upgrade. If you are looking for an adventurous SUV, look no further.
First of all, the new 2024 Land Rover Discovery Sport will sit on a new platform. It is a new Electric Modular Architecture (EMA). Moreover, Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Sport will get a flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) platform. The MLA architecture can work with traditional combustion engines and also all-electric powertrains, while EMA is made for electric vehicles. In terms of styling, we expect a couple of visual upgrades.
However, don’t expect a major overhaul yet. A new design should be introduced in 2025, per reports. Right now, it seems like the vehicle’s angular rear end is not so popular, so that’s where we expect to see bigger improvement. New platform will provide more interior room, because of the flat floor. Lastly, Discovery Sport should introduce a bigger display and a new steering wheel.
Land Rover Discovery EV is On the Way
Clearly, Jaguar Land Rover plans to introduce more EVs in the following years. Naturally, this means the manufacturer will axe conventional ICE outputs. However, JLR is developing zero-emission fuel-cell technology. This clearly means that hydrogen is about to replace internal combustion engines. However, we don’t know if the 2024 Land Rover Discovery Sport will get this type of fuel. However, an all-electric Land Rover Discovery is on the way.
So far, we know that the manufacturer plans to deploy a rapid-charging 800v system. The same system is used by Porsche and Hyundai. This technology can add around 60 miles of driving range in five minutes of charging. As for the Discovery EV, we are waiting to hear the official specs. Lastly, the EMA architecture will provide a standard AWD system and it will be able to accommodate setups with one and two electric motors.
2024 Land Rover Discovery Sport Price and Release Date
First of all, the new 2024 Land Rover Discovery Sport will keep the current engine lineup for another year. Models with gasoline engines will start at $37,500 and they will move up from there. On the other hand, we don’t know how much the all-electric Discovery Sport is going to cost. In any case, this modern and premium model will hit the markets in the later stages of 2023. With new architecture and numerous improvements, Land Rover Discovery Sport is ready for a new chapter.
