Range Rover Evoque: Epb automatic use

EPB will be applied automatically if the ignition is switched off and the vehicle speed is below 3km/h (2mph).

To prevent automatic operation, when the vehicle is stationary, press and hold the EPB switch in the release position. Within 5 seconds, switch off the ignition and continue to hold the EPB switch for a further 2 seconds.

EPB release - manual transmission:

If the vehicle is stationary with the EPB applied, pressing the accelerator and releasing the clutch will release the EPB and allow the vehicle to move off.

Automatic release will operate in first, second and reverse gears.

To delay automatic release, hold the EPB lever in the applied position, and release at the desired point.

The parking brake system gradually reduces the system load to assist a smooth drive away.

If the reduction in system load causes the vehicle to move after a valid gear is selected, full load will be automatically re-applied to the parking brake.

To override the load reducing feature of the EPB, manually apply the parking brake after selecting a gear.

In the event of a failure, a PARKBRAKE message will be displayed in the message centre.

EPB release - automatic transmission:

If the vehicle is stationary with the EPB applied and the transmission in D or R, pressing the accelerator will release the EPB and allow the vehicle to move off.

Note: Automatic release of the EPB is possible only when the driver’s door is closed and the driver’s seat belt is buckled.

To delay automatic release, hold the EPB lever in the applied position and release at the desired point.

At the start of a journey, EPB release times may be extended when changing from P or N. This is to allow for increased gear engagement times.
