Range Rover Sport to be updated in November

Land Rover will be making some significant updates to the Range Rover Sport range.

Customers will have the two diesel and three petrol engines alongside the efficient new P400e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrain with a 51km all-electric range.

On the outside there are some subtle changes, including a new grille and bumper up front and a new spoiler at the rear.

As always, it’s extremely luxurious on the inside. The Sport is equipped with every possible luxury and safety gadget you can imagine, but there are a host of leather and colour options available to further enhance the experience.

The Range Rover Sport is available with Jaguar Land Rover’s first Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain. The P400e is capable of driving up to 51km with zero tailpipe emissions when driven in all-electric mode.

The P400e is the most efficient Range Rover Sport and combines a 221kW four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with an 85kW electric motor, giving a total available power output of 297kW from the permanent four-wheel drive system.

This allows for a zero to 100km/h sprint time of 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 220km/h.

The upgraded Range Rover Sport line-up, including the new P400e, will be available in South Africa in November with pricing to be announced closer to the time.
