Default Re: Many Land Rover & Range Rover models lose their diesel engines; petrol only!

I'm so glad I picked up the v6 diesel Discovery diesel last year. I love the engine and the refinement and of course the Discovery is so very enjoyable. It's sad that it's not going to be sold in India anymore, but hopefully the BS6 engine does get launched soon.

Its been a lot of miles on the Discovery and i still smile everytime i hit the roads. Its been trouble free 35k kms with just a change of tires that came in at 32k kms. I went in for pirelli scorpion zero and they are softer tyres.

The comfort of the car is just fantastic. The only thing i miss on the car is the Android Auto for google maps. Maintenance has been with Pune dealer mainly. I will try and post a detailed review in due course.

They should bring the 2.0l diesels and develop diesel versions ... and bring it to India ASAP.
The Auto Industry is in a transition phase moving from IC engines to IC-Electric hybrid to pure EV eventually.

Among the IC engines, the Diesel engine option seems to be the first to hit the axe (atleast in the passenger segment to start with) with further R&D and investments being stopped.
Its a matter of time, Land Rover will transition to petrol-electric hybrids to EVs further down the line.
