Range Rover launches its first ever hybrid

Range Rover launches its first ever hybrid

Beyond the P400e, the entire Range Rover Sport line-up has been revamped, with key changes to the interior, including the brand's new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system which debuted on the Range Rover Velar and includes two high-definition 10-inch touchscreens mounted on the centre stack.

Moving on to the Range Rover Sport SVR, it gets an increase in power to 567bhp by using the same state of tune for its 5.0 litre supercharged V8 as the F-Type SVR, which cuts its 0-62mph to 4.5 seconds and comes with more carbon fibre content than before too. The rear follows the same recipe with a new bumper and slimmer stoplights making it look more sharp and sturdy.

Of course, if you just want to do fast things in a vehicle, you could save about 40 large and pick up an equally quick Porsche droptop - the new SVR stickers at $114,595.

So perhaps the price of Gosling being decked in the face by an unsuspecting Ford is worth it for the art of the film. I still have no clue what objective she served in the story (which is sad, because Davis deserves better).


Range Rover has introduced the new engine alongside other changes to the Range Rover Sport for 2018. According to Land Rover, the plug-in hybrid does zero-to-60 miles per hour in 6.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 6.7 seconds) and has a top speed of 137 miles per hour (220 km/h). Land Rover also claims a fuel economy of 37.75kpl and an electric only range of up to 50km.

At the front, the striking new design is enabled by intelligent Matrix Pixel LED headlights, sitting alongside a redesigned grille.

Land Rover had much more choice.

Tom Petty Is Still Clinging To Life — LAPD
Petty's death was confirmed by Tony Dimitriades , longtime manager of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers , on behalf of the family. It was on May 20,1977 that a then 26-year-old Petty, whose death was announced yesterday, starred at Sheffield City Hall.


The Range Rover Sport PHEV is powered by a 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine developing 300hp and mated to an 85kw electric motor which runs from a lithium-ion battery pack slung below the rear of the auto.

At steady speeds the auto uses Global Positioning System to work out when best to switch between fully electric and hybrid driving modes; if a steep hill is approaching, the engine will fire up to take up the slack, then cut out going downhill. Designed and engineered by JLR in United Kingdom, the new Range Rover Sport will be produced at the company's Solihull production facility, with deliveries from early 2018. The prism-shaped lithium-ion battery is located beneath the floor of the boot at the rear of the auto, while the plug-in access point is at the front of the vehicle.

The entry-level Range Rover Sport, the 237bhp 2.0 SD4 diesel, costs £61,315, the P400e starts from £70,800 and the range-topping SVR is £99,680. With a regular 10 amp source, the same will take 7 hours 30 minutes using the supplied cable. At the top of the range is the SVR version, sporting 575 hp and a $114,595 price tag.
