  • Range Rover Sport

This is the first plug-in hybrid model to be produced by Jaguar Land Rover and is the start of their strategy to have all JLR vehicles available with an electrified option by 2020. That's 25 hp more than the previous model, allowing the Range Rover Sport SVR to go zero-to-60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds).

In addition to the new petrol-electric hybrid options, every Range Rover Sport now has an enhanced design and new consumer technology, the company said.

On the other hand, if you're not arsed about the planet, the gloriously incorrect Range Rover Sport SVR receives a welcome power increase to just shy of 575bhp.

Order books for the latest Range Rover Sport are now open, with the first customer deliveries expected in early 2018. The new PHEV derivative also includes access to the 7KW on-board charger hidden behind the Land Rover badge on the right of the grille.

"These 2018 updates make the Range Rover Sport an even more attractive proposition with Carbon dioxide emissions down to 64g/km and a 101mpg on the combined cycle coupled with new infotainment technology making life simpler", said Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director, Jeremy Hicks.

Revealed on October 4, the new 2019 model year Range Rover Sport is the British company's first vehicle to include the option of a plug-in hybrid, which sits alongside a revamped range of petrol and diesel alternatives. The 398 bhp total available power output, delivers 0-100kmph in only 6.7 seconds and a maximum speed of 220kmph. The P400e hybrid can go up to 31 miles on battery power alone, officially returns 101mpg and should hold significant appeal for company vehicle customers do to its low tax liability.

"The cosmetic updates are the usual facelift fodder with stuff like a revised grille and new LED headlights, and the interior gets a bit fo a Velar makeover, with the new TouchPro Duo infotainment with a pair of 10" screens.

JLR claims that, when rapid charging, a full charge can be achieved in as little as 2 hours 45 minutes at home using a dedicated or 32amp wall box. Below that, buyers still have a wide choice of four-cylinder, V6 and V8 petrol and diesel engines.

As for the cabin, that has been jazzed up a bit with up to 12 power points (including two standard plugs for charging laptops) and two high-definition touchscreens - the sort of luxuries that help elevate a Range Rover above the competition.
