PEAK PERFORMANCE The Range Rover PHEV can drive up to 31 miles purely on electric power, with a variety of modes that help to optimally use or regenerate the battery‘s charge RANGE ROVER PHEV: A SILENT REVOLUTION The world’s first luxury SUV is still the best. As the flagship for the entire Land Rover marque, the Range Rover blends peerless performance and off-road capability with exemplary levels of sophistication, with a cabin that offers a truly first-class travel experience. No other vehicle has such a broad span of ability. Range Rovers have always harnessed the latest technology; the latest model, too, crackles with smart ideas such as the twin 10" Touchscreens of the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, seven-mode Terrain Response system, and all-round LED lighting. But the advanced drivetrain of the Range Rover PHEV powers this icon into a new era for mobility. As a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, it seamlessly selects and blends usage of its petrol engine and its electric motor – which is charged from an external power supply, and enhanced by regenerative braking – to deliver optimum performance and efficiency. The drivetrain also enhances the hallmark capabilities of a Range Rover. Up to 31 miles of near-silent electric driving makes it even more refined. You can even pre-cool the cabin in hot weather, without affecting the electric range, if done while the vehicle is plugged in. Cabin space and off-road ability are uncompromised by the electrification of its drivetrain; nor are the famous Range Rover design cues – even the charging point is hidden discreetly in the grille. Charging is convenient and simple. It can be done overnight with a standard domestic electricity supply, or in less than three hours with a dedicated wallbox, and can be controlled remotely with the Remote Premium app on your smartphone or wearable device. And naturally, the PHEV has the lowest emissions (and in electric mode, none at all) and fuel consumption of any Range Rover. Range Rover created the luxury SUV category in 1970. Now, with the PHEV, it’s redefining it. OFFICIAL FUEL CONSUMPTION FIGURES FOR THE RANGE ROVER PHEV in l/100km (mpg, combined): 3.1 (91). CO 2 emissions g/km, combined: from 72.
