At the presentation of the new Range Rover, two plug-in hybrid variants were promised, in 2024 Land Rover will further complement the range with a fully electric variant of the luxury SUV. In the meantime, the British manufacturer has provided some additional technical information about the PHEV models: the P440e and the P510e.
Both the Range Rover P440e and the P510e rely on a pressure-fed six-in-line, but with the first plug-in version, the 3-liter block is less powerful for the day. This petrol engine is coupled to a 145 hp electric motor and a 38 kWh battery pack (of which 31 kWh of useful capacity).
That would translate into an electric range of 113 kilometers and CO2 emissions of 18 grams, which Land Rover calls the ‘Extended Range PHEV’. In practice, that would equate to 88 km of range. A lot for a PHEV, but quite little for such a large battery.
The new Range Rover is going to come in a new Extended-Range Plug-In Hybrid that will make things a bit more efficient for Land Rover’s flagship SUV.
Fast charging at 50 kW means that you need less than an hour to charge the batteries from 0 to 80% of their capabilities. The Range Rover P440e develops a system output of 440 hp and a combined maximum torque of 620 Nm, the P510e sets 510 hp and 700 Nm. This allows the most powerful of the two to sprint to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds.
And for those waiting for a fully-electric Range Rover, the company still plans to deliver an EV model in 2024. Come into the beautiful world of Range Rover.
