Land Rover are focusing on delivering technologies to help drive down emissions and improve fuel economy. Currently, they have the Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport as plug-in hybrid (PHEV) options as well as various Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles (MHEV).
Land Rover HybridThe new Range Rover Evoque was the first Land Rover to receive their latest MHEV system that harvests and stores energy normally lost during deceleration and intelligently redeploys it to maximise efficiency; ultimately reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Incorporated within the Mild Hybrid technology, an enhance Stop/Start system enables the engine to shutdown while the vehicle decelerates.
Furthermore, the new Range Rover Evoque has been designed to be 85 percent recyclable/re-usable and 95 percent recoverable at the end of the vehicle's life.
The Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Sport HST also have the option for the latest 48V MHEV system. The Range Rover Sport HST delivers up to 30.5 mpg on a combined cycle with emissions as low as 213g/km of CO2; remarkable for a large SUV that delivers nearly 400bhp!
Land Rover Plug-in HybridThere is a PHEV option for both the Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport. The PHEV P400e can perform most short commutes in full Electric Vehicle (EV) mode and compared to a conventional petrol engine, you get an additional boost in performance when you need it most.
They may be two of Land Rover's most efficient vehicles yet, however, the Range Rover Sport can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 6.3 and the Range Rover in 6.4 seconds.
Depending on your local power supply, either vehicle can be fully recharged in as little as 7.5 hours using a home charging cable. The charging port can be found integrated in the front grille, for easy accessibility without compromising the Range Rover's iconic design.
Capability and performance haven't been compromised in the PHEVs as both vehicles are still fully capable of tackling off-roading such as wading and rock crawl.
