The new 2019 Range Rover plug-in hybrid dubbed as ‘P400e’ has just been revealed by the automaker with an impressive range and a powerful engine.
The 2019 Range Rover P400e is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine paired with an 85 kW electric motor. The combined system delivers 398 bhp and 472 lb.-ft of torque. The official claim suggests the Range Rover plug-in hybrid could sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 137 mph. The electric range stands at 31-miles, and the recharge time of the battery is 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The 2019 Range Rover P400e uses a ‘Parallel Hybrid’ drive mode, which intelligently manages when to use the electric motor, internal combustion engine or the combination of both. The ‘save’ function also prevents battery charge to drop below a pre-selected value.
The charging port is located behind the front grille. The white light on the charging socket indicates that the vehicle is connected to the charging port, but is not currently charging, flashing green light shows the vehicle is charging, whereas the blue light shows timed charging is selected.
The Range Rover plug-in hybrid will arrive at the dealerships in the United States next summer. We can’t confirm at the moment when it will arrive in the Middle East.
