2015 Land Rover Range Rover Hybrid and Range Rover Sport Hybrid are the first-ever hybrid models introduced by Land Rover, which will deliver exceptional fuel economic situation and reduced CO2 emissions. Deliveries will start in very early 2014 of this premium diesel SUV hybrids.
To confirm its capability, 3 Range Rover Hybrids will embark a legendary trip from Solihull to Mumbai, India. This ‘Silk Trail 2013’ 16,000 km expedition sees 12 nations and absorbs several of the globe’s most challenging roads including part of the ancient, 4,000 mile Silk Road linking Asia with the Mediterranean. These are the initial hybrids to ever try this difficult path.
The outcome of the 3-litre SDV6 diesel engine and 35kW electrical motor is 340PS at 4,000 revoltions per minute and a class-leading 700Nm torque between 1,500-3,000 rpm, leading to sensational SDV8-style performance. Both versions increase to 62mph (100km/h) in under seven secs with a top speed of 135mph (218km/h), combined with a 26 per cent reduction in CO2 exhausts to 169g/km, equivalent to 44.1 mpg on the combined pattern.
The brand-new Range Rover Hybrid powertrain features three driver-selectable methods and combines Land Rover’s prominent 3-litre SDV6 diesel motor with a 35kW electric motor incorporated with the 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. The hybrid system, consisting of lithium ion battery pack, inverter and electrical motor analyzes less than 120kg.
The electric motor creates 170Nm torque to increase acceleration and drives the vehicle in EV Mode. The electric motor also acts as a generator, harvesting kinetic energy via regenerative braking, billing the battery when the car is slowing. In driver-selectable EV mode the Range Rover Hybrid can take a trip at speeds of approximately 30mph (48km/h) for a range of as much as one mile (1.6 km) before the diesel engine flawlessly reactivates.
With each other, output of the diesel engine and electrical motor is 340PS at 4,000 rpm and a class-leading 700Nm torque between 1,500-3,000 rpm, leading to spectacular SDV8-style performance. Both designs speed up to 62mph (100km/h) in under seven seconds, provide sturdy transient and mid-range performance with a full throttle of 135mph (218km/h), integrated with a 26 each cent decrease in CO2 emissions to 169g/km, equal to 44.1 mpg on the combined pattern.
The latest generation Range Rover versions have actually all been created with the integration of a hybrid device in mind. As a result, the fluid cooled electric battery pack is mounted below the flooring of the vehicle in a safety boron-steel cradle without effecting on the cabin or travel luggage room.
2015 Range Rover Hybrid has the very same five-seat capacity and baggage room as the common car and maintains the full-size extra wheel. This no-compromise approach is echoed in the Range Rover Sport Hybrid whose interior is unmodified from the conventional design, right to the 5 +2 seating.
Both hybrid Range Rover models continuously deliver a class-leading width of ability and versatility, boosted by the incredibly linear torque delivery from the powertrain and preserving Land Rover’s peerless 4×4 system including Terrain Response® 2, with uncompromised wading and ground clearance.
