Didn't realize there would even be a diesel engine. What great news. Will the diesel be the base engine, or will it be a petrol engine?

You figure that if they do go forward with the Evoque diesel, a Disco Sport diesel could happen too. I imagine that they would monitor the Evoque diesel's success first before they bring a diesel over for the Disco Sport too. One step at a time.

They should. A Disco Sport Diesel should be a priority for them from how I see it. Being a volume model, the Disco sport needs it, or at least can benefit from it.

What does it matter if the Disco Sport is a volume model or not?
That seems pretty obvious to me...

If it a volume model the goal is... volume... how do you get volume? sell more. How do you sell more? Give the people what they want. How do you know what they want? Doesn't matter, just tell them. Its mercantilism. sell it and they will buy. Its a Land Rover...

they're more likely to invest into a volume model as it will amortise at a quicker rate than a low volume project.
