Range Rover P400e at The 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show – Photos & Videos
Jaguar Land Rover unveiled at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show the first plug-in hybrid Land Rover – Range Rover P400e (see report here), scheduled for market launch in 2019.
It will be one of just a few high-end plug-in hybrid SUVs on the market.
Check out our test drive report here.
The 13.1 kWh battery in such a big car isn’t all that impressive considering it will launch in 2019. As a comparable, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was equipped with a 12 kWh several years ago. However we do believe it will be a compelling addition to the Range Rover brand.
Here we can pass along some photos and videos from the LA show.
Range Rover P400e specs:
- 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.8 seconds)
- up to 31 miles (51 km) of all-electric range (NEDC, think ~20 miles/32 real world/EPA)
- 13.1 kWh battery
- 300PS (221kW) 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 116PS (85kW) electric motor. Combined system output: 404PS (297kW), 640Nm of torque
- permanent four-wheel drive system
- top speed of 137mph (220km/h)
- charging takes 2 hours 45 minutes at home using a dedicated 32 amp wall box (7 kW)
- battery is covered by an eight-year, 100,000-mile, 70% state of health warranty

New PHEV powertrain
The efficient new Range Rover P400e provides sustainable performance by combining a 300PS (221kW) 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 116PS (85kW) electric motor. The 404PS (297kW) total available power output  – available through the permanent four-wheel drive system – delivers 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.8 seconds) and a maximum speed of 137mph (220km/h).
With an impressive 640Nm of torque, the new powertrain combines to deliver dynamic performance with traditional Range Rover capability, comfort and refinement.
Thanks to its electrified powertrain, the Range Rover P400e emits only 64g/km on the NEDC combined cycle and provides an all-electric range of up to 31 miles (51km) without the Ingenium petrol engine running. For the first time, customers choosing Land Rover’s flagship SUV can experience zero-emission driving.
The P400e provides whisper-quiet refinement with uncompromised off-road capability as well as enabling entry into areas with restrictions for air quality, including most congestion charging zones.
 Peak internal combustion engine and electric power not delivered at same engine speed
Drivers of the new PHEV model can choose from two driving modes:
1. Parallel Hybrid mode (the default driving mode) – combines petrol and electric drive. The driver can optimise battery charge or fuel economy by utilising one of two charge management functions:
> SAVE function – prevents the battery charge dropping below a pre-selected level
> Predictive Energy Optimisation (PEO) function – entering a destination in the navigation system enables the feature, which utilises in built GPS altitude data for the selected route, to intelligently combine the electric motor and petrol engine to maximise fuel economy
2. EV (Electric Vehicle) mode – enables the vehicle to run solely on the electric motor using the energy stored in the battery, making it the ideal solution for quiet, zero-emission journeys
When rapid charging the 13.1kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery, a full charge can be achieved in as little as 2 hours 45 minutes at home using a dedicated 32 amp wall box. The battery can be fully charged in 7 hours 30 minutes using the 10 amp home charging cable supplied as standard. The Range Rover’s battery is covered by an eight-year, 100,000-mile, 70 per cent state of health warranty.
