Finding the ideal car for your business can be a real headache. If you’re going to be on the road a lot, you’ll need something that’s cost-effective, safe and secure, and, if possible, offers you some of the latest technological features. A Land Rover can offer all of this.
Vehicle tax rates will vary depending on the size of the engine, fuel type, and level of CO2 emissions a vehicle produces. When the ECO mode, available on the Discovery Sport, is activated, the accelerator pedal response is softened to reduce energy consumption. Using the touchscreen display, the program can also give you feedback on how you can improve your driving style to improve efficiency.
Both the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport lines also offer a hybrid model as an alternative. This combine a traditional internal combustion engine with one or more electric motors.
The Range Rover Hybrid allows you to drive one mile on electric power alone, at speeds of up to 30 mph with the battery fully charged.
The advent of laptop computers and tablet devices has given us the ability to get real work done wherever we are. For those who need to work on the go, Land Rover’s InControl feature provides in-car access to a 3G hotspot. This allows online access for up to separate eight devices, so your colleagues can put the finishing touches on those PowerPoint slides while you’re driving to the presentation.
In the event your vehicle breaks down and you risk missing an important appointment, you can take advantage of In Control’s Optimized Land Rover Assistance feature. This uses satellite positioning and vehicle health information to guide a recovery system to your location to help minimize any delay.
Safety and Security
Finally, ensuring that the driver and passengers are safe and secure is the most important feature of any vehicle. The monocoque bodies of the Range Rover and Discovery Sport both feature all-aluminum frames that offer greater strength despite their reduced weight. Both vehicles received five-star ratings from Euro NCAP.
To ensure your vehicle is protected against possible theft, Land Rover employs a constant alarm and engine immobilizer. On InControl-compatible models, the security system can detect any illegal movement of the vehicle and send this information to the proper authorities.
Land Rover’s extensive feature list means that they always stay in demand. Whether you decide to buy used or new, you can be sure that there’s a competitive market awaiting when it’s eventually time to upgrade.
