A few weeks ago, Land Rover presented the new generation of its iconic Range Rover, an even more successful, more luxurious and also more efficient version. At least on paper. And while waiting for a 100% electric version that will no longer emit a drop of gasoline, the British firm is presenting an unprecedented P510e rechargeable hybrid version with a battery as big as some 100% electric cars!
The Range Rover has a 38.2 kWh battery, a record on the market today. To fill up on electrons, Land Rover has integrated a 50 kW DC fast charging system in addition to the 7 kW AC charger. Thanks to a Combo CSS socket, charging up to 80% takes about 40 minutes. On a 7 kW Wallbox, it will take about 5 hours to reach 100%.
With such a large battery, range normally goes accordingly, and Land Rover announces 113 kilometers on a single charge under the WLTP cycle thanks to its 143 horsepower electric motor alone. That’s for the theory, but in practice the English firm admits itself that it is rather necessary to count on 80 kilometers. It’s relatively little considering the enormous capacity of the battery, but it must be said that this Range Rover is a beautiful beast with more than 2.5 tons on the scale.
Under the hood, the electric motor assists a 3.0-liter six-cylinder that brings the combined output to 510 horsepower. To afford this luxurious plug-in hybrid SUV, you will have to pay, at least, in France, 150,300 euros.
This proposal is in addition to another already existing PHEV version, namely the P440e version. Battery and range are similar, but overall power is lower at 440 horsepower. It is also a little more “accessible” and starts from 134,100 euros.
