Range Rover P400e Gets A Big Price Tag In U.S.

AUG 10 2018 BY MARK KANE 25

Land Rover introduces its first two plug-in hybrids in the U.S. – the 2019 Range Rover P400e and 2019 Range Rover Sport P400e.

Both models are equipped with the same powertrains (398hp of system output and 13.1 kWh battery). We expect that all-electric range will be around 20 miles.

The bigger Range Rover P400e starts at $95,150, while the smaller Range Rover Sport P400e at $78,300, but you need to add $995 destination fee so it’s $96,145 and $79,295 respectively. The available federal tax credit should effectively lower the cost by around $6,000.

The Range Rover P400e does 0-60 mph in 6.4 seconds, while the Range Rover Sport is able to achieve 6.3 seconds.

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
  • 296hp (217kW) 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with a 85kW electric motor. Combined system output: 398hp (292kW), 640 Nm 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

of no consequence

Lets see.. $78k or $95k starting price for a 13 kWh battery?? I’m starting to think that there’s 2 types of electric crowds: 1) folks who put electric first and vehicle 2nd, and 2) the opposite. The Range Rover P400E is geared for the electric ‘dabblers,’ just like the i8, and any PHEV that gets less about 30 miles of electric range. Good Lord, it’s 2018- BEV’s get 250+ miles without breaking an electron sweat!

Andy

Two types of car crowds. 1) the first adopters where electric matters most. 2) Everyone else that just wants a car that does the job they want at the best price possible.

The non Hybrid Range Rover also starts at $85k, so in fact you’re paying $10k for a 13kWh battery, which isn’t particularly different to many other manufacturers offerings.

Get Real

Sorry Andy from England, uncompetitive compliance-level as far as electric goes.

They might sell a few since their it is a large SUV and so far that market is untouched with the up to 7 seater Model X being smaller then this, but it is only a matter of time until Tesla or someone else enters this segment with a true electric large SUV.

Spoonman.

There’s also the Volvo XC90 and Mercedes GLE PHEVs, which are pretty damn big.

Andy

Yes, but that would be a Tesla, not a Range Rover and will not have the cachet of Range Rover (important for many that buy Range Rovers). I agree though, it’s only a matter of time, but large proper off road SUV’s will be one of the last to transition to full BEV (and Range Rovers ARE proper off road vehicles, just with a bit of luxury).

Could Land Rover try harder, sure. We know they have the technology as seen in the I Pace, but there’s presumably a business case that is currently stopping them from putting it in Land Rovers. Perhaps they think the buyers of Land Rovers and Range Rovers aren’t quite as comfortable with the idea of a BEV as people that buy Jaguars? An assumption sure, but I’d suggest Range Rover buyers are quite a conservative bunch.

Ideology is great, but they need to make money at the same time.

John

I should’ve added the comparison price- a 75 kWh battery in the Model X that starts at $85k. Little bit better ROI with the Model X..

Andy

I doubt many buy a Range Rover for it’s ROI! 😀

Andy

It seems I’m wrong here. The Range Rover Sport is the slowest depreciating car in the UK this year. https://www.whatcar.com/news/slowest-depreciating-cars/

And in the US it depreciates by around 37% over three years according to Edmunds, The Tesla Model X depreciates by 36% over that time, the Model S by 35% and a basic Corolla depreciates by 31%. All depreciate by about 50% over 5 years.

That previous comment should have been in reply to my comment about depreciation not ROI…! (Currently in moderation due to links)

John

I wasn’t speaking as much about depreciation as cost per kWh of battery. Bang for your buck. I suppose the Range Rover is better off road, but I’m not really sure either owners of Model X or Range Rovers really off-road much.

BoltEV (was SparkEV)

This car is for carpool lane access, not for those who wish to drive electric. I’ll be really surprised if any actually plug in.

If the buyer knows what a Plugin is, then that buyer would know the benefits.

-Quiet Ride: Great for anyone that wants to listen to good music instead of car exhaust.
-Some instant torque would also be added to the driving experience, at any speed.
-And 20 miles of real range could cover 80% of commutes.
-Then there are the advantages of EV’s in your garage, can you pre-heat the car in winter without turning on the gas engine? Or the AC in the summer?

So, no, with the Tesla Model S and X and 3 now out, no one is going to be buying this just to get over on California.

Brian

Not just California. Atlanta’s HOV lanes, many schools are restricting iddling during carpool and European captiols are starting to restrict ICE use downtown.

nix

Yea, at least the i8 has the excuse that it was essentially done and being shown off at car shows in 2013, with sales starting in 2014, so it gets a bit of a pass for being fairly early to market for a performance plugin. But it is getting a bit late now not to do better.

Vinay R

May god help you sell this vehicle

Acevolt

I am sure they will sell in California just for the car pool stickers. Especially since the current stickers all expire in December.

Andy

I think depreciation on Range Rovers is eye watering anyway, so I doubt people will care too much!

Vexar

Is Range Rover a luxury brand? They look like a Kia from the outside.

Dimitrij

Stop insulting Kia 🙂

(⌐■_■) Trollnonymous

Lame AER / Compliance car.

CA should start disallowing PHEV’s the HOV.Carpool stickers.

REXisKing

Or, at least raise the requirements to 40 miles of real EPA range.

Don Zenga

Please note that Range Rover is a very big SUV with dimensions of
205″ L x 78″ W x 73″ H and such a big machine running on 2.0 L engine will go a long way to cut pollution. Now the Plugin version will reduce pollution drastically by using motor for the 1st 20 mile range.

Base model starts at $89K and this plugin adds another $7K. Its still better, more spacious and has higher range than the plugin from Benz S Series which comes at the same price tag.

Henry

This is a blatant abuse of the federal tax credit system – 20 miles electric range (on paper) does not deserve $6000 tax credit.

Dimitrij

What impressed me in this behemoth is not the electric thing, but the gasoline (“petrol”) engine; a 2.0L 4-banger cranking out almost 300 hp?!?!
