Range Rover doesn't compromise with plug-in hybrid

The new Range Rover Sport plug-in hybrid doesn't compromise on style, interior space or driving capability.

For the 2019 model year, Land Rover will add a plug-in hybrid drivetrain to its Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles. That drivetrain will give the vehicles limited pure electric range and excellent fuel economy.

As a plug-in hybrid, the Range Rover Sport PHEV can drive for about 31 miles under electric power, after which it operates as a hybrid vehicle, with its engine and electric motor both powering the wheels.

The Range Rover Sport PHEV also maintains its four wheel drive system, including locking differentials, adaptive suspension and Terrain Response System, which lets the driver choose a setting for the current surface the vehicle is crossing.

The Range Rover plug-in vehicles carry the P400e badge.

Land Rover makes a few changes to the cabin to reflect the drivetrain, including information screens and an electric mode button.

Impressively, the electric motor lets Land Rover fit a small, four cylinder engine under the hood, while still getting 396 horsepower out of the system.

The added electric drive makes for smooth, quiet acceleration.

The charging port sits in the grille, and connects to either an electric vehicle charging station or a standard 110 volt wall outlet.
