Beginning in 2020, all new Land Rover vehicles will be available with an electric powertrain option. Ahead of that, however, this week the luxury manufacturer introduces its all-new Range Rover Sport P400e, Land Rover's first plug-in hybrid, scheduled to hit lots in 2019.
Under the hood, the P400e boasts a 2.0L four-cylinder Ingenium gas engine that cranks out 296 horsepower, as well as an 85kW, 102-horsepower electric motor. So in total, the SUV harnesses 398 horsepower and delivers 472 lb-ft of torque. This in turn allows the Range Rover to travel from 0 to 60 in 6.3 seconds, before topping out at 137 mph.
When in EV mode, the P400e can last for up to 31 miles, while going up to 85 mph. To fully charge the vehicle it will take 2 hours and 45 minutes using a rapid charger, but it can also be completely charged overnight via a standard socket.
Expect a starting price of $78,300 USD.
