Engine Options and PHEV, MHEV and Fully Electric
Previous models of the Range Rover P400e had an approximate fully electric range of around 28 miles, which in real world terms was nothing to write home about. Whilst it offered a significant reduction in CO2 emissions in a car synonymous with being a gas guzzler as well as Benefit in Kind advantages to business lease customers, the EV range was widely criticised. The new Range Rover Plug-In Hybrid has stepped it up a level, boasting up to 62 miles (100km) of EV range.
There are two engine options available for the PHEV, powered by a 3.0L 6 cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 105kW motor. These are the P440e and the P510e. Range Rover claim that home charging to 100% will take around 5 hours using a 7kW AC home charger, or under 60 minutes up to 80% charge using a public 50kW DC rapid charge.
Many theorised that Land Rover would announce a fully electric version of the Range Rover to compete with the likes of the Tesla Model X or the Audi E Tron. Information is scarce at the moment, but Land Rover have officially confirmed that the new Range Rover will be available from 2024.
Mild Hybrid and Conventional Engines
Conventional Diesel and Petrol engines are, of course, still available. However, they are available with Mild Hybrid (MHEV) technology. For those new to MHEV, MHEV technology stores and redeploys energy from deceleration that would otherwise have been lost.
Range Rover's Natural Environment
As to be expected by any Land Rover product, the new Range Rover is just as capable off of the road as it is on the road.
All Wheel Steering is standard on all variants of the new Range Rover, making it "the most manoeuvrable Range Rover ever." The All Wheel Steering allows for high-speed stability as well as a load of benefits for low-speed, off road driving. Adaptive Dynamics and Electronic Air Suspension allow for a smooth driving experience on any road condition. It is capable of towing up to 3,500kg and additional optional extras are available for those needing to regularly tow.
Whether off road or in a flooded area, the Range Rover is more than capable; it can wade into water depths of 900mm ad the 3D Surround camera includes Wade Sensing. Real time information is provided to the driver through the car's sensors in the door mirrors.

The expected delivery time for the new Range Rover is currently estimated as early 2022.
