The car features and updated design and new style elements
“Our customers are very clear about what they want from any new Range Rover,” said Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover.
“‘Don’t change it, just make it better,’ they tell us, so everything we’ve done has been about enhancing our flagship SUV.
“After nearly 50 years the fourth generation Range Rover is the finest so far, ensuring the original luxury SUV remains the choice for discerning customers the world over.”
One of the biggest additions to the new range is the introduction of the P400e hybrid model.
The new model also comes with an hybrid variant
It follows the Sport model that also got a hybrid powered car and the announcement by JLR that they would be committing to electric-powered cars across its range.
The efficient new Range Rover P400e PHEV emits just 64g/km of CO2 and can be driven in all-electric model for 31 miles.
P400e is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine which produces 300bhp and an 85kW electric motor.
This creates a total power output of 404bhp which allows the car to sprint from0-60mph in 6.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 137mph.
Much like the Sport variant the car comes with two drive modes – Parallel Hybrid mode an dEV mode.
The latter allows the car to travel solely on the power of the battery and electric motor while the former can manage the battery power output using a preset or by combining it with the petrol engine to optimise fuel economy.
Rapid charging can see the car recharged in a not so rapid two hours and 45 minutes while a standard charge will take seven hours and 30 minutes.
“The new Range Rover takes our luxury SUV to new heights, delivering enhanced refinement, luxury and all-terrain capability,” said Nick Collins, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar Land Rover.
The updated interior looks to be in part inspired by the Velar SUV
“The new PHEV powertrain isn’t simply a no-compromise solution – it builds on the traditions of our flagship SUV and delivers heightened refinement and comfort with impressive performance and efficiency.”
On the other end of the spectrum the new Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic is the most powerful model Range Rover to date.
It is powered by a supercharged V8 petrol engine which produces 565bhp and can sprint from 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds.
Prices for the new range start at £79,595 rising to £177,030 and the hybrid variant range costs between £86,965 and £168,015.
