Spotted Testing: 2019 Range Rover PHEV HSE 2.0L P400e


Jaguar Land Rover has garnered a fair amount of EV press recently with the introduction of the production version of the Jaguar IPace.

However, that’s not all JLR has been up to with regards to plug-ins.

That’s because beginning this May, Land Rover will soon roll out two PHEV SUVs; the 2019 Range Rover PHEV HSE P400e and the 2019 Range Rover Sport PHEV HSE p400e.

I had the opportunity to catch a Land Rover employee today doing some public charging station testing, with a Range Rover PHEV HSE 2.0L P400e.

The PHEV HSE P400e combines a 2.0-liter turbo-four with an 85-kW (114-hp) motor and the lithium-ion battery pack. The gasoline engine and electric motor combine to deliver 398 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque. Range Rover has stated a respectable 0-60 time of 6.4 seconds. The power is delivered to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Range Rover hasn’t announced the official EPA range rating yet, instead, they just list the range at an estimated 31 miles per charge. With a 13.1 kWh (total pack size), it’s reasonable to expect close to 30 miles per charge on the EPA rating, if you figure close to 10 kWh will be usable.

As linked above, JLR recently announced that starting in 2020 all new models will be offered in plug-in versions, either BEV or PHEV. Apparently, they’ll have at least three by 2019.

Wow… So in a year we could have at least one PHEV SUV with 30 miles range. That’s respectable and not so far away!
There’s no other large PHEV SUV or similar that’s on sale today except the Pacifica Hybrid and soon to start sales Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, correct?

Well 30 mi is something, and every Range Rover that leaves the factory with a plug and not a V8 is a win, and I believe there is a big enough audience of Range Rovers that would NEVER be convinced into a Tesla Model X even if sold at Corolla prices.

Also the Range Rover P400e retains the crazy rock climbing characteristics – Range Rover did a PR stunt climbing some steep stairs in China a while back. So it is still very capable despite being a PHEV.

I have an RRS since 2 years, it’s the SDV6 with 306PS. I was really happy to see that the RRS will be available as a hybrid, but…the thought of 4cylinders really keeps me off it, unfortunately. So i think i will keep my current car for a few years and maybe by then there will be a RRS BEV, that would be an even better option than an hybrid. Drove the i3 a few years back and i’m still not over how much fun it was, so i might get an i3s if it gets the rumoured 120Ah upgrade this fall to bridge the gap. But yeah, as much as i respect how Elon has disrupted the auto industry dinosaurs, his cars are nothing i would ever consider to buy, it’s too much of a beta product to be called a proper automobile, no matter how much ludicrous you put in them…
