Land Rover’s Range Rover models are known for their comfort and off-road capabilities, but certainly not for their fuel economy. The Range Rover Sport P400e should improve the British manufacturer’s reputation with its hybrid plug-in engine.
Combining a 2.0-liter, 300-horsepower four-cylinder engine with an 85 kW electric motor, the new Range Rover Sport P400e’s plug-in hybrid engine will produce a total of 404 horsepower with 472 pound-feet of torque.
With your foot to the ground, the “green” Range will be able to reach 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds while the top speed, a completely useless data in Canada, is set at 220 km/h.
The Range Rover Sport P400e will be able to travel about 50 kilometers in 100% electric mode with a battery of 13.1 kWh, and its average consumption will be 2.8 liters per 100 kilometers according to Land rover.
A 7 kW charger will recharge the battery in less than three hours with a 240-volt outlet while a 120-volt outlet will recharge the battery in 7.5 hours. Despite its eco-friendliness, Land Rover says the Range Rover Sport 400e will be just as capable as its brothers in off-road driving.
The price has not been announced, but we are expecting the Range Rover Sport 400e in 2019.
