I have 2 p400e RR Sports.

I just wanted to share with you the issues because clearly they are common to the two vehicles

Both are 2019 MY with same HSE dynamic trim, the only differences between the two cars are the colours, interior trim options and wheels

Vehicle 1:
Glitch infotainment, lags, black screen, apple car play dodgy
Failure of all systems related to headlights e.g. emergency autonomous braking, traffic sign recognition, adaptive headlights etc. Solved after two dealer trips and two software updates
Engine problem yellow light, - was a gas particulate filter problem, lack of regeneration even though it had been doing regeneration cycles. Maybe a hybrid issue in that the engine is barely used in city driving?

Vehicle 2
Complete engine power loss on the motorway, complete black screens everywhere. Engine would not restart. Solved after car was closed and locked for 20 mins and the engineer restarted it and everything worked fine. Dealer couldn't figure it out.

Thank you for testing them extensively before they arrive in the US.
Or, more seriously, that sounds bad.

Hi
"was a gas particulate filter problem, lack of regeneration even though it had been doing regeneration cycles" but this looks like you have a diesel engine, I thought the P400e has a 2L turbo gasoline...

My friend have a RRS with the 2L (300Hp), same engine that your car should have and his car manual have no mention of "regeneration cycles" :shock:

In Europe, petrol (gas) engines also need a particulate filter, just like diesel engines. My theory is that because of the very occasional use of the petrol engine in city engine cycles, the filter never gets up to temperature to burn off the particulates. When it does get up to temperature e.g. in motorway driving, something is stopping the regeneration from happening properly.

Hi,

I am a new RR Hybrid owner. 2 times I charged the car and confused a bit with the results:

In the first charge, It took 4.5 hours for 100% charge and showed me 31 miles with 100% and unfortunately I did only 7.2 miles with 100% charge.

Today I charged the car with an other charge point , It took again 4.5 hours to charge completely and it showed 25 miles max with 100% charge.

Did anyone test the charge more than twice and if pos could you share the results ( at least the averages) ? I feel, I need to adjust my expectation from EV and Hybrid, or I make a mistake while charging or using the car or my car has a problem with EV and/or Hybrid.

I'm seriously considering dropping my 2020 RR PHEV pre-order and just ordering a Model 3....too many issues with these vehicles.

I keep getting check engine yellow warning lights, the dealership keeps upgrading control modules, whatever this means... Never seems to work as the light comes on again after refueling, usually after a long journey of 400km or so.

You need to go back to the dealer. I do average of 40 to 45 km on it (hybrid not just ev alone). My 100% is sometimes 43 to 50km. This depends on the previous charge. It will be an estimate. Never 7 miles though! From 0 to full charge it takes 7 hrs so you might be using a fast charger right?

Did you ever find out? I've got this occasionally
Never found out and draler says its normal. But its not. Lately we have been having peoblema with them not charging and then dropping the charge of the 12v battery to zero. When that happens or prior to it, the knocking sound increases. It must be a fault and JLR are trying to fix it. It happened again today.

I’ve had 2019 model since March. Same issues - screens going black, funny breaks, clicking battery after driving.

Just as a counterpart: Mine is absolutely faultless, MY19, delivered in March 2019.

Blank screens point to telematics to being up to date (15.2 is current). I hear "clicks" after parking but I heard similar clicks at my old x5, and I am pretty sure it is the exhaust system cooling down.
