2014 Range Rover Sport Hybrid to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on May 8, 2013

Many fans are eagerly awaiting the introduction of a hybrid version of the new Range Rover Sport after a confirmation was made last September by a Land Rover representative in Frankfurt.

Stuart Frith, Land Rover's Chief Programme Engineer for Range Rover Sport, said that the more environment-friendly Range Rover Sport will utilize a diesel-electric hybrid powertrain.

In addition, the model will be available with a SDV8 diesel with 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). It will be offered with a 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine later on. It’s believed that the Ranger Rover Sport Hybrid will make use of an evolution of the technology used on the 2011 Range_e plug-in hybrid.

This older model was powered with a 3.0-liter TDV6 diesel with 242 bhp (180 kW) mated to a 93 bhp (69 kW) electric motor that produces a combined output of 334 bhp (249 kW). In addition, it featured a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and a 14.2 kWh lithium-ion battery.

Land Rover had said that the concept offered a range of 20 miles (32 km) solely on electric power. Land Rover also claimed that it has a total range of 690 miles (1,112 km). It is capable of returning 85 mpg UK (71 mpg US or 3.3 liters / 100 km) and emits 89 g/km of CO2.
