The Range Rover is now available with a petrol mild hybrid engine option.
The new setup pairs a 3.0-litre, 400hp petrol engine, which features an electric supercharger and a twin-scroll turbocharger, with a 48V battery.
Combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures are 30.4mpg and 212g/km respectively.
Jaguar Land Rover says the introduction of the powertrain is part of its commitment to offer an electrified powertrain with all its vehicles from next year.
It comes alongside other updates to the Range Rover range, including the addition of sign post dimming and tourist mode to the headlights as standard, with the latter adjusting the beams for left and right hand drive countries.
Also now standard is a Smartphone Pack, including Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity.
Two new paint colours are available - Eiger Grey and Portofino Blue - as well as a 22in gloss black wheel option.
The updated Range Rover is available to order now, with prices starting at £83,655.
