Startech Range Rover Evoque LPG

Startech has introduced the Range Rover Evoque LPG, ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Co-developed with Prins, the model has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and an autogas system that injects LPG into the combustion chambers. This results in an "optimized combustion process and consequently an outstanding power yield and clean emissions." While the model produces 240 HP (177 kW), Startech says CO2 emissions cut by 15 percent and fuel costs are reduced by 50 percent. When the 74 liter LPG tank is depleted, the autogas system deactivates to enable the engine to run exclusively on petrol.
If you're looking for fuel savings without the LPG tech, Startech offers a PowerXtra SD 22 kit for the Evoque's 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine. It enables the mill to produce 215 HP (158 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 25 HP (18 kW) and 40 Nm (29 lb-ft). This allows the crossover to run from 0 100 km/h in 8.3 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 200 km/h (124 mph).
