Range Rover Sport Lineup Adds Plug-in Hybrid Variant

  • Range Rover Sport

Combined with the 300hp 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine, the P400e will output 404hp through its eight-speed ZF transmission (and all four wheels) with both power sources running simultaneously; apparently good for 6.7 seconds to 62mph and a top speed of 137mph.

The highlights of the mid-life facelift, ahead of an all-new model arriving in 2020, are a hot SVR variant and a plug-in hybrid electric model.

"These 2018 updates make the Range Rover Sport an even more attractive proposition with Carbon dioxide emissions down to 64g/km and a 101mpg on the combined cycle coupled with new infotainment technology making life simpler". That's 25 hp more than the previous model, allowing the Range Rover Sport SVR to go zero-to-60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds).

The motor is powered by a 13.1kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery. Parallel hybrid mode, which is the default, combines petrol and electric drive. The P400e hybrid can go up to 31 miles on battery power alone, officially returns 101mpg and should hold significant appeal for company vehicle customers do to its low tax liability.

"When we started the design process with this new Range Rover Sport, it was important that we maintained its sporting prowess while evolving the exterior design", said Land Rover Chief Design Officer, Gerry McGovern. The driver can choose between the save function, which prevents the battery charge dropping below a selected level, and predictive energy optimization, which uses navigation data to choose when to switch between electric and gas power.

Drivers can switch between the default Parallel Hybrid mode which combines petrol and electric drive, and EV mode where the auto runs exclusively on electric power for quieter zero-emission journeys.

That hasn't stopped this rendering artist from imagining how a luxury Land Rover sedan could look when the Road Rover range expands in the future.

The Sport hybrid enjoys full-time four-wheel drive and can be driven either in hybrid mode, where the electric motors assists its petrol-powered colleague, or in full EV mode, where the vehicle runs exclusively on the energy that's been stored up in the battery.

Going on sale in early 2018, the refreshed range will also include a flagship SVR performance model, boasting a V8 engine, plus the usual range of petrol and diesel powertrains, including four-cylinder and V6 options. There are also 12 power points inside and two domestic plug sockets.
