Range Rover unveil new electric hybrid car

Range Rover have unveiled their first ever electric hybrid car.

The vehicle manufacturing company have announced the new Range Rover Sport, which combines electric and petrol power.

Writing on their website, they shared: "In addition to efficient PHEV options, every Range Rover Sport has an enhanced design and new consumer technology. The flagship SVR now delivers 575PS, making it the fastest Range Rover to date. This is an SUV driven to another level of dynamic capability, with breadth of appeal and desirability like no other.

"The latest Range Rover Sport is Jaguar Land Rover's first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Badged P400e, the new model provides sustainable performance by combining a 300PS (221kW) 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 116PS (85kW) electric motor. The 404PS (297kW) total available power output [1] - available through the permanent four-wheel drive system - delivers 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds (0-100km/h in only 6.7 seconds) and a maximum speed of 137mph (220km/h). With an impressive 640Nm of torque, the new powertrain mixes dynamic and sustainable performance with traditional Land Rover capability, comfort and refinement."

The brand new Range Rover is the company's first step to their goal to make all Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles electric by 2020.

Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer at Land Rover, said: "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. The addition of design-enabled technologies, such as our new infotainment system and the LED headlights demonstrate our drive towards ever greater desirability for the customer."

Whilst Nick Collins, Vehicle Line Director at Jaguar Land Rover, added: "The new Range Rover Sport strikes a compelling balance between dynamic capability, passenger comfort and efficiency. The introduction of our advanced plug-in hybrid powertrain is a watershed moment in the history of our performance SUV."
