Geneva 2011: Range Rover Range_e Plug-in Hybrid

Range Rover Range_e plug-in diesel hybrid is capable of delivering 89g/km CO2 emissions and a fuel economy of 85mpg. Purely on electric mode, this SUV has a range over 20 miles. Not bad! And the best part is, that Land Rover plans to launch first diesel-electric hybrid already in 2013.

The Range_e prototype is based on the Range Rover Sport and uses the current 242bhp 3.0 litre TDV6 diesel engine, working with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and a 92bhp electric motor. Combined power output is 334bhp.

John Edwards, Land Rover global brand director, said: “This system is the first example of a premium plug-in hybrid that also provides the full four-wheel-drive capability that you would expect from a Land Rover. It is an evolution of the production intent diesel-electric hybrid technology which will be launched in our next generation of SUVs and will be available for customers within the next two years.”
