Land Rover Developing 20-Mile Range Rover Plug-In Hybrid
Land Rover is engineering a Range Rover Sport hybrid that it claims will emit just 100g/km of CO2 and could offer an electric-only range of as much as 20 miles.
The vehicle will be driveable next year when a small fleet of up to five prototypes start shakedown tests ahead of a 2012 sales launch.
If it can be achieved, the low CO2 figure will be a significant breakthrough for the luxury brand, and it will move the Range Rover Sport’s carbon emissions onto an equal footing with those of smaller, lighter vehicles like the Citroën C1 and Ford Focus Econetic.
