In conjunction with the launch of the Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV, All British Cars, the distributor of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles in the Philippines, have also unveiled the new plug-in hybrid Range Rover and Range Rover Sport as part of the luxury automaker’s key steps towards electrification in the Philippines.
Called the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport P400e, these two flagship luxury SUVs are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 petrol engine with an electric motor that has a 13.1 kWh battery pack. Total system output is 404 hp and 640 Nm of torque, with power being sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. These Range Rovers can also drive in pure electric mode for up to 50 kilometers.
Because of the hybrid powertrain, these two flagship luxury SUVs merely produce 64 g/km of CO2 emissions and consume as little as 2.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (35.7 km/l) based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). When in normal hybrid mode, both plug-in hybrid models can reach up to 700 kilometers. In EV mode, it provides an all-electric range of up to 50 kilometers without the petrol engines running. As a result, drivers are able to make short electric-only trips within Metro Manila without consuming a drop of fuel.
As for charging, these plug-in hybrid SUVs go from zero to full in 2 hours and 45 minutes. The batteries are covered with an 8-year, 160,000-kilometer, 70 percent health state warranty. Like all hybrids, the plug-in hybrid Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are capable of regenerative braking, charging the battery during deceleration.
Every plug-in hybrid Range Rover and Range Rover Sport comes with a Type 2 Plug 7 kWh wall charger. Installation costs are not included, and it may vary per household. Jaguar Land Rover’s supplier will be evaluating interested households if their homes are qualified for a charger before we even sell a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
The plug-in hybrid Range Rover is available in Vogue standard-wheelbase at P11,990,000 and Autobiography long wheelbase at P15,190,000. Meanwhile, the plug-in hybrid Range Rover Sport comes in at P9,490,000. Clients may also purchase an additional charger for their second homes or offices. A second charger costs P105,000 (installation not included).
