Land Rover Unveils Its Range Rover Sport Facelift

Land Rover

This is the first plug-in hybrid model to be produced by Jaguar Land Rover and is the start of their strategy to have all JLR vehicles available with an electrified option by 2020.

Since the Government crackdown on petrol and diesel auto sales from 2040, every manufacturer has announced some sort of electric future.

Now, the British manufacturer has unveiled the first vehicle to lead the charge.

In addition to the SVR and P400e, the Range Rover Sport facelift will be offered with a full range of petrol and diesel powertrains, including Ingenium four-cylinder and V6 and V8 units.

Utilizing a permanent all-wheel-drive system, the vehicle accelerates from zero to 60mph in 6.3 seconds and has a top speed of 137mph.

Manchester City Have Identified January Replacement For Benjamin Mendy
A club statement said: " Everyone at the club wishes him a speedy recovery ". "We will see in January", the City boss added. "We thought next summer about looking for another left-back - another replacement - but we will see what we do".

The hybrid powertrain is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and Land Rover says that the electrification of the power systems has done nothing to alter its go-anywhere abilities.

Then there is the much less powerful Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which uses two electric motors and a 2.0-litre petrol to make 200bhp. Acceleration from 0-62mph takes 6.7 seconds, yet official economy is 101mpg - though that figure barely means anything in a PHEV.

Powering the P400e's electric motor is a 13.1kWh lithium-ion battery, which sits below the boot floor and can be charged in as little as 2 hours and 45 minutes using a 32amp wall box or seven hours and 30 minutes with the standard home charging cable. It is also fitted with All Terrain Progress Control which enables it to grip in the poorest of conditions. Yes, a 25hp increase in the 5.0-litre V8's output from 550hp to 575hp is unlikely to have helped its appetite for super unleaded, just as the introduction of a carbon fibre composite bonnet won't have made a colossal dent on its prodigious kerbweight - but the new SVR is expected to be marginally quicker (and sharper to turn, too, if SVO's tuning adjustments pay off) and that's a good thing when you've got a 570hp Porsche Cayenne Turbo S to compete with.

The 2018 Range Rover Sport lineup will arrive in Australia in April, with prices starting from $95,100 (excluding on-road costs). In normal use, the auto operates in Parallel Hybrid mode, blending the petrol engine and electric motor to deliver the most frugal and fluent progress. Parallel hybrid mode, which is the default, combines petrol and electric drive. In this mode, a Save function prevents the battery charge from dropping below the selected level and the Predictive Energy Optimisation function requires you to enter a destination into the navigation.

The Sport interior's biggest upgrade, though, is nearly certain to be Touch Pro Duo, the same twin 10-inch screen infotainment system that I experienced in August in the new 2018 Range Rover Velar. It also gets Advanced Tow Assist, which makes positioning a trailer easier when reversing.
