RANGE ROVER SPORT ELECTRIFIED
The Range Rover Sport has always combined the refinement and capability of a large SUV, with the performance of a sports car. And now, in a first for Jaguar Land Rover, the Sport model portfolio will also boast a P400e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrain with a 51 km all-electric range.
The P400e is the most efficient Range Rover Sport and combines an advanced 221 kW four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with an 85 kW electric motor that receives its charge from a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. The total available power output of 297 kW drives the permanent four-wheel drive system via JLR’s eight-speed automatic transmission.
This innovative hybrid system drives Land Rover’s performance SUV from zero -100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 220 km/h.
The P400e delivers CO2 emissions of 73 g/km and fuel economy of up to 3.2-l/100 km (NEDC cycle). This intelligent system can also harness kinetic energy that would otherwise be lost when braking and utilise it to help recharge the battery. A full charge can be achieved in approximately 7.5 hours from a standard domestic power supply, or less than three hours from an AC fast charger.
