Available now is the Range Rover Sport Plug-In Hybrid, an SUV that combines eye-catching sporty looks and power with remarkable fuel efficiency. New, exciting features have been introduced, such as EV Mode, the perfect companion for those who frequently travel short distances. This mode completely shuts-down the traditional combustion engine, allowing the car to run purely on electricity for a range of up to 31 miles, meaning zero tailpipe emissions. Alternatively, use the hybrid system with the combustion engine to produce spectacular CO2 figures as low as 73g/km, guaranteeing outstanding savings on fuel.
The refreshing design of the exterior of the Range Rover Sport makes no exception with this PHEV addition to the family, with a muscular stance and dominant smooth lines guaranteeing it is remembered. The charging port has been concealed behind the front grille, allowing for an easy connection without the need of changing the iconic design of the Range Rover Sport. The seats in the cabin guarantee occupant comfort with deep seat foam in addition to spacious leg room for seats in the front and rear.
The cabin of the Range Rover Sport PHEV uses the latest intelligent technologies that are fully integrated with the PHEV system. This includes the Touch Pro Duo and Interactive Driver Display that will display how efficiently you are currently driving, giving you information instantly regarding how well the electric motor is working with the combustion engine. The Range Rover Sport PHEV also has a mode selection, allowing you to pick what source powers the car. For instance, the EV mode allows you to drive up to 31 miles purely on electricity. Alternatively, select hybrid mode which will have the lightweight Ingenium engine work simultaneously with the 85kW electric motor as well as a large 13kWh capacity battery which is charged by an external source.
Another new function that is exclusive to the Land Rover PHEV range is cabin preconditioning, which allows you to pre-heat or pre-cool your cabin, all without switching on the engine and retaining full EV mode range. This function can be accessed via the Land Rover app on your smartphone.
Various driver assistance systems are included with the Range Rover SportPHEV such as Cruise Control with a Speed Limiter, Emergency Braking & Lane Departure Warning. Also available is Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist and High-Speed Emergency Braking ensuring the best safety when going on a motorway. Additional features are also available to offer even more features to monitor the driving experience and make driving hassle free and leave you full of confidence.
