2015 Range Rover Plug-In Hybrid Spied Testing – Video

MAY 31 2014 BY ELECTRICCARSTV 5

Range Rover PHEV?

Range Rover PHEV?

“We managed to get some shots of what we believe is the upcoming Range Rover Sport Plug-in Hybrid with a petrol engine. The current range of models by Range Rover only contains hybrid’s that are combined with a diesel engine and that are able to run at low speeds and for only 1.6 km. The one in the video clearly runs a lot faster purely on the electric engine. Thereby we did a license plate check on the car and it’s registered as a petrol car, suggesting this should be the expected and rumoured Range Rover Sport Petrol Plug-In Hybrid! Footage was shot on Tuesday the 20th of May 2014.”

So says the video description attached to this clip of a Range Rover at the Nurburgring.

We concur.  This is most likely the upcoming Range Rover plug-in hybrid, which is expected to launch in 2015 or perhaps a bit later.

It seems that be 2016-ish, there will be a bevy of plug-in SUVs available globally.

The times they are a-changin’.

Times are a-changing indeed. The number of SUV Plug-Ins that are coming are rising quickly! The news in 2015 is going to be full of SUVs.

It’s good to see a couple of automakers actually trying to produce a large SUV to compete with the Tesla Model X. But to be honest, the Model X would be the oddity, the exception, the only proper EV. Everything else, Volvo, Mitsubishi, Land Rover, Porshce, BMW and more, they would have a much more heated competition with eachother than they would have with the Model X because they wouldn’t be making much of an impression on Tesla, the current king, if they still have to lug around an engine and petrol tank.

Is it a plug-in really? 1,6 km on electricity?

Anything under 50 km on electricity shouldn’t be allowed to be called a plug-in.

Checking that reg plate, that Range Rover Sport should have a 5.0L Petrol engine.

Are we sure it’s a hybrid?
