Land Rover releases its first plug-in hybrid car

Date: 05 October 2017

Land Rover has revealed its first plug-in hybrid car - the Range Rover Sport. 

Badged P400e, the new model provides sustainable performance by combining a 300hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 116hp electric motor.

The total available power output of 404hp - available through the permanent four-wheel drive system - delivers 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 137mph.

The P400e emits only 64g/km of CO2 and offers an all-electric range of up to 31 miles.

The motor is powered by a 13.1kW, high-voltage, lithium-ion battery. Land Rover engineers delivered a set-up that maximises interior space and provides ideal weight distribution.

Using rapid charging, a full charge can be achieved in as little as two hours and 45 minutes at home using a dedicated 32 amp wall box. The battery can be fully charged in seven and a half hours using the 10 amp home-charging cable supplied as standard. 

The announcement of the P400e follows a previous release from the manufacturer claiming that by 2020 all new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will be electrified. 

Nick Collins, vehicle line director at Jaguar Land Rover, said: "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."
