2013 Range Rover Sport Hybrid

Well, it didn’t take long to receive confirmation on the story we brought forth only yesterday. Land Rover confirmed today that the company is indeed preparing a hybrid Range Rover and that it will be unveiled in 2013. The first testings will begin in late 2010.

The Land Rover Range_e features a diesel-electric hybrid powertrain and a new ZF eight-speed automatic that will be used in all of the future models. Land Rover said that the company is also considering adding a petrol-electric hybrid system.

The first model said to be introduced with the hybrid technology will be the Range Rover Sport with the full-sized Range Rover and the Land Rover Discovery not being too far behind. The hybrid version of the Range Rover will be priced at around £10k, but Land Rover is also considering a plug-in hybrid model for 2015. This plug-in hybrid Range Rover is one of the most exciting developments. Chief engineer of hybrids at Jaguar Land Rover, Peter Richings, said: "It means you can drive a Range Rover for at least 20 miles on full electric power around town, emissions of less than 100g/km and speeds of up to 70mph in EV mode."

Yeah! I’m not also impressed with a hybrid vehicle, so unreliable and the fact that it is a sport vehicle, I don’t think that it will be a good idea to make it an electric car.

hmm I hate hybrid for an extreme off road vehicle such as the rover..

1- Finally, a production Diesel Hybrid! Unless I missed one... 2- Soon Premiership footballers can go green! 3- Those last two numbers seal this as A Great Idea.

Well good thing that it came out into hybrid technology. As far a everyone knows the Rover is one hell of a gas guzzler one. That’s why many are tuning their eyes on the SUV’s.
