Extended range Electric Hybrid

The plug-in hybrid powertrain combines the effortless performance of Land Rover’s 3.0-litre straight-six Ingenium petrol with a 105kW electric motor and 38.2kWh battery (with a usable capacity of 31.8kWh – nearly three times the capacity of the model it replaces).

Two versions of the Electric Hybrid are available: the range topping P510e and the P440e. Both deliver CO2 emissions from 18g/km, and a WLTP electric driving range of up to 113km (70 miles) and an expected real-world range of up to 88km (54 miles)1. Based on real-world data from existing customers, Range Rover Sport owners will be able to complete around 75 per cent of their journeys2 using hushed electric-only power. For longer journeys, drivers benefit from a total driving range of 740km (460 miles) in real-world conditions.

The two plug-in hybrids offer trademark Range Rover Sport performance, with the P510e capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds (0-60mph in 5.2 seconds) and a top speed of 242km/h (150mph). It provides the perfect blend of thrilling driver engagement and effortless refinement, provided by a combination of its 3.0-litre six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and electric motor, for a combined output of 510PS and 700Nm of torque.

INFOGRAPHIC: ELECTRIFYING PERFORMANCE - NEW RANGE ROVER SPORT

The P440e returns the same impressive efficiency credentials, while retaining smooth and responsive performance, with a total combined power output of 440PS, 620Nm of torque and a 0-100km/h time of 5.8 seconds (0-60mph in 5.5 seconds).

The 3.0-litre six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine delivers strong performance even without the aid of the electric powertrain, so customers enjoy customary Range Rover Sport acceleration even when battery charge is low. Conversely, in full EV mode, drivers are able to cruise at a hushed 140km/h (87mph) without using the petrol engine. The PHEV drives through an advanced eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and power is delivered to the wheels by Land Rover’s advanced Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system.

It will charge from 0 to 80 per cent in less than an hour using a 50kW rapid charger, while a domestic 7.2kW AC wallbox will deliver a full charge in under five hours, delivering ultimate convenience when charged at home overnight1. Brake Energy Recuperation technology also harvests energy normally lost under braking and deceleration, which is fed back into the battery to maximise the EV driving range.

Predictive Energy Optimisation works in harmony with built-in geofencing technology and the navigation system to maximise the effectiveness of the PHEV powertrain, deploying electric drive when most suitable along the route, for example when entering low emissions zones. It automatically calculates the most suitable method of propulsion, optimising efficiency and reducing localised CO2 emissions. The intelligent system also learns regular routes – via the advanced Pivi Pro system – and will recognise a daily commute (or similar journeys) to select the most appropriate method of propulsion.

Three different driving modes

HYBRID MODE – the default driving mode on start-up. Hybrid mode seamlessly optimises New Range Rover Sport’s hybrid powertrain for any situation. The advanced system uses eHorizon navigation data to preserve and prioritise running in EV mode, for example in low-emissions zones and built-up areas – while also prioritising EV mode for the last 6km of journeys in urban areas for smooth, zero-emissions arrivals.

EV MODE – uses electric power only, for hushed zero tailpipe emissions journeys.

SAVE MODE – preserves battery charge to be used at a point later in the journey. Drivers can set the desired level of charge to be retained using the Pivi Pro touchscreen.

Connected convenience

Drivers can make the most of the plug-in hybrid using the connectivity options delivered by the comprehensive Land Rover Remote app3. These include Cabin Pre-Conditioning, which can be activated while the car is plugged in and charging, enabling customers to pre-warm or pre-cool their Range Rover Sport ahead of journeys, all via the convenience of a smartphone. Drivers can also manage a suite of PHEV-related Timed Charging functions, including:

Immediate Charging – commences battery charging immediately.

Low-Cost Hours Only – when plugged in, priority is given to charging during a specific time period (for instance, when energy costs are at their lowest).

Smart Charging – the car’s intelligent charging system will charge as efficiently as possible based on the planned departure time set by the driver. In conjunction with the pre-conditioning function, it will begin charging at the most cost-effective time.

The characteristic V8 soundtrack and authentic high-performance credentials of the new V8 combine with a 17 per cent improvement in fuel economy over the previous V8, while also delivering 20 per cent more torque for an elevated driving experience. Its twin-scroll turbochargers, which feature ceramic bearings, provide immediate responses and virtually eliminate turbo lag, while peak power and efficiency are enhanced by a water-cooler that reduces intake air temperature more effectively, ensuring the Range Rover Sport is a strong and consistent performer in all conditions.

Valvetronic variable intake lift brings precise control over the combustion process throughout the rev range, always ensuring strong and smooth performance, while steel cylinder liners have been replaced by spray bore technology, reducing weight and friction, and improving thermal efficiency. 

The advanced eight-speed automatic transmission has been thoroughly re-engineered to optimise gearshift patterns based on inputs from the driver, including factors such as accelerator pedal gradient and downshifting behaviour. Hundreds of potential shift sequences have been optimised, for a flexible, dynamic and engaging drive.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS - THE NEW RANGE ROVER SPORT

Smooth and powerful Ingenium petrols

The New Range Rover Sport is also available with a comprehensive choice of Ingenium petrol engines, offering smooth performance and effortless pace, with Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology to optimise efficiency and responses. A twin-scroll turbocharger reduces turbo lag and improves engine response, assisted too by an electric supercharger.

Customers will be able to choose from Land Rover’s six-cylinder 3.0-litre engine P360 and P400 powertrains, with 360PS and 400PS respectively. The P360 produces 500Nm of torque and powers New Range Rover Sport from 0-100km/h in 6.0 seconds (0-60mph in 5.7 seconds), while the P400 takes only 5.7 seconds (0-60mph in 5.4 seconds). Fuel consumption is rated at 9.4l/100km WLTP (30.1mpg) for the P400 and 9.3l/100km (30.4mpg) for the P360, and CO2 emissions at 213g/km and 212g/km for the P400 and P360, respectively3.

The MHEV system uses an advanced 48-volt electric supercharger and Belt-integrated Starter Generator in place of the alternator to assist the engine, both when stop-start is being used, or when greater pressure is applied on the accelerator pedal, with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery to store energy captured as the vehicle brakes and decelerates.

Advanced and efficient diesels

A broad range of powerful and efficient six-cylinder diesel engines is also available, offering strong responses with generous torque levels, bolstered by MHEV technology for optimised efficiency and responses. Three options are available – D250, D300 and D350 – with 250PS, 300PS and 350PS, respectively.

The D250 produces 600Nm of torque, ensuring strong pulling power, and is capable of 0-100km/h in 8.0 seconds (0-60mph in 7.5 seconds). The D300 delivers 650Nm of torque, for a 0-100km/h time of 6.6 seconds (0-60mph in 6.3 seconds), while the most powerful D350 provides 700Nm of torque and takes just 5.9 seconds to accelerate from 0-100km/h (0-60mph in 5.6 seconds).

All three diesels return up to 7.4l/100km fuel economy (WLTP, 38.2mpg) and use the same energy-harvesting 48-volt MHEV technology as the Ingenium petrol engines, to boost efficiency while also providing more rapid responses. The D250 and D300 produce 194g/km of CO2, and the D350 195g/km.

Land Rover’s six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines are constructed using lightweight aluminium and a pair of close-coupled series sequentially arranged turbos. This delivers maximum heat to the catalyst, reducing the time the car takes to warm up and run with greater efficiency. Low-friction steel pistons and 2,500bar piezo injection also contribute to the diesel MHEV’s enhanced efficiency, while variable nozzle turbo technology allows 90 per cent of peak torque to be delivered in just over a second at 2,000rpm – ensuring the smoothest and most responsive drive.
