As a part of the strides being made by almost all car manufacturers to electrify their portfolio, Land Rover revealed a new mild-hybrid version of their Range Rover Sport model. Available on the Range Rover Sport HST Special Edition, the mild-hybrid harvests energy lost in braking to assist the engine when needed.
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque debuts as the SUV’s second generation, looking much like the “Victoria Beckham-designed” first generation, but now carrying Velar inspired design and mild-hybrid technology.
Right after revealing the hybrid Range Rover Sport P400e as well as the refreshed 2018 range of the Sport, Land Rover took the covers off its bigger brother, the Range Rover. The updates come in the form of a slightly refreshed design, more features and more power for the SV Autobiography Dynamic model. But the silver lining is not any of these. A P400e Plug-in Hybrid variant of the big Rangie is on the cards too.
Range Rovers have grown sleeker with every year since the Evoque was launched. In Land Rover’s quest to fill every market niche, there is a new model between the sub-compact Evoque and the midsize Sport that will be called the Range Rover Velar.
STARTECH, a BRABUS group company, recently revealed pictures and details of their latest creation, the STARTECH Pickup, which is based on the latest Range Rover. It is set to be unveiled at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show.
Land Rover has unveiled the details of their new Range Rover Sport HST, and made its official debut at the New York Auto Show.
The Range Rover Sport SVR will make its global debut at Pebble Beach on August 14th. It will be the fastest and most powerful Land Rover ever made by the British brand. It will also be the first SVR model, a new designation created for future performance Land Rover and Jaguar products.
We’ve had our Range Rover for nearly 18 months now. When we bought it, it had some minor cosmetic flaws that we elected to leave as-is at the time, because they didn’t hinder the operation of the car. But we recently decided to keep it for longer than we initially anticipated, so we figured we’ll dress it up and restore its new-car vibe.
So how’s our much-maligned Range Rover doing? Perfectly fine, actually. It’s become our daily driver, used even for the occasional trip to Abu Dhabi. This kind of reliability is more than we ever could’ve hoped for. But the 282 hp 4.4-litre V8 engine is nine years old now, with around 107,000 km on the clock. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see if it has lost any performance over the years, as is supposedly the case with all engines?
Stealing the show from the other SUV manufacturers this year is Range Rover, as they showed off their new long-wheelbase version for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and not at the earlier Dubai Motor Show as had been rumoured earlier.
