Plug-in hybrid Range Rover confirmed for Australia

Share

Of more benefit to drivers, though, is the car's all-electric driving range of up to 31 miles, its claimed 101mpg fuel economy and its Carbon dioxide emissions of 64g/km.

Aside from the PHEV's arrival, the fourth-generation Range Rover's mid-life update is characterised by refreshed exterior styling, an upgraded interior and the addition of new technologies. Dubbed the P400e PHEV, this Range Rover combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor, producing a combined 398bhp.

As with the current auto, this updated Range Rover can be ordered in both standard and long-wheelbase forms, with the latter geared towards markets where buyers are more likely to be passengers rather than drivers. That's enough to haul the Range Rover to 60mph in 6.4sec, with a top speed of 137mph.

Acceleration from 0-62mph officially takes 6.8 seconds but, perhaps more importantly, the P400e Range Rover has an official economy figure of 101mpg, emits just 64g/km of Carbon dioxide (for a low 13% Benefit-in-Kind tax rate) and can travel in near-silent electric-only mode for up to 31 miles on a single charge.

Two driving modes - "Parallel Hybrid" (default) and "EV" - will allow P400e drivers to switch between petrol/electric or pure electric drive.

Range Rover's most well-heeled model now has a green tinge. Also look for updates to the vent graphics, lower side accents, and rear bumper.

Like the Sport, the Range Rover gets an array of new LED headlight options, including Matrix and "Pixel-Laser" units.

Inside, front-row seats are wider and comfier, with adjustment controls moved to the door panels, while the 60/40 split-fold second row provides wider pews that can recline up to 40 degrees and offer up to 1206mm of legroom (LWB).
