Plug-in hybrid for Range Rover speeds race to electric era

Inside, there are two 10-inch touchscreen displays similar to the Velar and the 2018 Range Rover Sport.

Replenishing the Range Rover hybrid's batteries takes 7.5 hours from a conventional socket, although fast chargers and home-installed wallboxes running at 32 amps can bring this time down to just two hours and 45 minutes.

Like the rest of the Range Rover line-up, the P400e is paired exclusively to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, with power put down via a permanent four-wheel-drive system with a new transfer case.

This all-new three-pot and electric motor system will enable around 48km of pure electric driving, as well as improved fuel economy.

"Parallel Hybrid" features two charge management functions, with "Save" preventing battery charge from dropping below a pre-selected level, while "Predictive Energy Optimisation" uses built-in Global Positioning System altitude data to maximise fuel economy when a satellite navigation route is selected.

Although styling changes for this Range Rover are minor, they include a revised grille with a new gloss-black surround and widened air vents in the front bumper. Also look for updates to the vent graphics, lower side accents, and rear bumper.

'Klopp under no pressure' - Purslow
With United and City neck and neck at the top, this season could yet produce one of the most exciting finishes to a PL campaign. The Red Devils haven't played against a title contenders team yet in the Premier League.

The Range Rover Sport should be the better-handling of the two P400es when it comes to on-road driving.

There have been subtle changes to the exterior of the vehicle, with a refreshed grille and new LED headlights, while the cabin has an adapted version of the twin touch screens found in its smaller brother, the Velar.

Designed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover in the United Kingdom, the PHEV announcement comes with confirmation of a 2018 update for the flagship Land Rover offering.

There are also wider, softer seats, which can recline by up to 40 percent for increased passenger comfort.

Inside is where some of the more significant changes have been made, with the flagship Range Rover adopting the new Touch Pro Duo dual-screen infotainment system that debuted in the smaller Velar.

The most powerful 5.0-litre V8 resides under the SVAutobiography Dynamic's bonnet, with power and torque up by 12kW and 20Nm respectively. While the footage isn't very high quality, we can see that the new Vogue has been updated with similar design tweaks as the facelifted Sport. There's also 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capability. Along with the aforementioned SVAutobiography Dyamic and P400e PHEV, there is a 3.0-litre turbo diesel V6, which produces 190kW and 600Nm, a 4.4-litre twin-turbo diesel V8 producing 250kW and 740Nm, a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 with 380kW and 450Nm, and finally a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 pumping out 386kW and 625kW.
