Range Rover P400e Can Travel 31 Miles in EV Mode

Range Rover Sport SVR 2018 revealed

And with good reason.

Despite the car's frugality on fuel consumption, passengers are steeped in luxury.

There are so many different Range Rover models on offer these days that it's easy to forget about the original, big Rangie that continues to occupy the throne at the very top of the line-up.

At the back, new exhaust pipes are neatly integrated into the fresh bumper design, while the rear lights have a cleaner, less cluttered look.

Along with the refreshed lower side accents and vent graphics, there are six new alloy wheel designs and two new metallic paint colours - Rossello Red and Byron Blue - are available. Together with its introduction, it also marked the debut of an updated model range, with improved exterior styling and more power for the SVR variant.

It means that for the first time Range Rover drivers can enjoy zero emission motoring. Comprising two 10-inch touchscreens, this configurations allots control of the Range Rover's various off-roading and climate systems to the lower screen, while the top screen takes care of infotainment and navigation duties - although there's some crossover between the two screens. The Autobiography model will also be getting an Executive Seating upgrade which will include a 24-way power adjustment and heated armrest in front. The auto is also fittedwith 4G Wi-Fi hotspots for up to eight devices.

New features added to the Range Rover include the Activity Key as well as the Gesture Sunblind where users can use gestures to control the sunroof.

What you get for your money is pretty impressive.

The efficient new Range Rover P400e provides sustainable performance by combining a 221kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with an 85kW electric motor. Land Rover claims charging the battery to 100 percent can take as little as two hours and 45 minutes via a special home wall box, but a standard charge takes seven hours and 30 minutes.

Part of a broader series of updates to the Range Rover lineup for 2018, the P400e will be sold in the US unlike the previous Range Rover hybrid.

The most powerful 5.0-litre V8 resides under the SVAutobiography Dynamic's bonnet, with power and torque up by 12kW and 20Nm respectively. All engines come mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Pricing and the on-sale date for the 2018 Range Rover P400e will be announced closer to its on-sale date next year. This is due to Land Rover Chief Design Officer Gerry McGovern saying that customers didnt want the Range Rover to change, but instead "make it better".

Potential buyers interested in the plug-in hybrid Range Rover will need to hand over £86,565, while the range-topping SVAutobiography Dynamic model is priced from £141,580.
