Land Rover to showcase electric Range_e

16 Feb 2011

Range Rover Range_e

Land Rover will unveil the Range_e at the Geneva Motor Show - Land Rover's diesel hybrid plug-in prototype and one of several working prototypes being developed at Land Rover's design and engineering centre in the UK.

Based on a Range Rover Sport, the Range_e is fitted with a 3.0-litre TDV6 diesel with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. Matched with a plug-in parallel diesel hybrid system it offers a premium SUV that can run as a pure electric vehicle. The Range_e is the first capable 4WD model from Land Rover to achieve 89g/km of CO2. It has an EV range of 20 miles, a top speed of around 120mph and a range of 690 metres.

Also debuting at the Show are two Limited Editions including the Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition - the the most luxurious Range Rover ever. Alongside that, Land Rover will launch the 2011 Discovery 4 'Landmark' Limited Editions with Black and White themes.

Both models blend high-end interiors with bold, contemporary colour schemes. In keeping with the core appeal of the Discovery 4, both of these Limited Editions offer on-road refinement to match most executive saloons, the versatility of a large people carrier and unrivalled off-road capability. The Discovery 4 'Landmark' is now on-sale in the UK priced from £46,945 on the road.
