Land Rover has given the plug-in hybrid market a hit when it has equipped the Range Rover Sport with the plug-in hybrid software which is dubbed as the P400e.
We will not have a chance to see the first plug-in hybrid diesel engine in the world because Land Rover has chosen a gasoline engine to run with a stronger electric motor. The internal combustion process is carried out with the help of a 2.0 liter Ingenium turbo, dishing out 300PS and 400 Nm of torque, lifted straight from the entry-level Discovery and the Evoque.

For the electric engine, the Land Rover did not disclose the torque figure, but its power output is 116 PS. The electric system includes a 13.1kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery. It is fitted with an 85kW electric engine located in an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission in the center of the car, along with the 7kW charger on the board.
According to car news from Land Rover, if you use a dedicated home wall box with 32 amp, it will take at least 2.5 hours to get the full charger. Otherwise, using a standard 10 amp home charger, the average time to reach 100% battery will be 7.5 hours.

As a result of a great combination of the electric and gas engine, the car is capable of producing 404 PS and 640 Nm of torque, increasing up to 104 PS and a significant 240 Nm compared to its non-plug-in models.
If the Range Rover Sport 2018 runs on an electric engine alone, it has a range of zero-emissions at 51 km. The Rover whirs from 0-100km/h in a neck-snapping 6.7 seconds and has the maximum speed limit at 220 km/h. Meanwhile, it provides an average mileage of 35km/L in a combined driving layout.
