Range Rover has unveiled a pair of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles: the Range Rover Plug-in Hybrid and Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid. These are the first hybrid or electric vehicles in Range Rover brand history. Both Range Rover PHEV models can drive up to 19 miles using only the electric battery. Each model also gets up to 19 miles per gallon when using its gas engine without electric power.

The Range Rover plug-in hybrids use a 2.0-liter Si4 Ingenium engine that delivers up to 398 horsepower, reaching top speeds of 137 miles per hour. The PHEV Range Rover models also live up to the brand’s reputation for ruggedness, with an industry-leading 35.4 inches of wading capacity.

Range Rover has announced plans to introduce a fully electric vehicle in 2024.

In terms of performance, the Range Rover Plug-in Hybrid and Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid are nearly identical. The primary distinction between the two is in the design. True to its name, the Sport is designed to handle more off-road and difficult terrains. The trade-off is that the Sport model has slightly less cargo and passenger volume. The Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid has about 25 cubic feet of rear cargo space, whereas the Range Rover Plug-in Hybrid offers 65 cubic feet of rear storage.
