Range Rover P400E plug-in hybrid: too little of the good
Site author Stefan Grundhoff
Jaguar Land Rover has to go down from his gigantic fleet consumption. A plug-in hybrid in the Range Rover should support from next spring. But the cylinder quartet is simply too little in the colossus.
Other car manufacturers would probably like to have these problems too much. Because if you choose a Jaguar, Land or Range Rover. Basic variants and weak engines are traditionally flattened by the British luxury brand in the sales rooms. The best example is the top model Range Rover, which, with its powerful V8 engines, is enjoying the greatest demand world and Europe-wide.Good for income and contribution margins for the Jaguar Land Rover Group; But due to the ever harder legal requirements, a noteworthy problem for in -house fleet consumption. In order to avoid penalty payments – which JLR would then pass on to their own customers in the medium term – the British in the possession of the Indian Tata Group are working to bring modern engines into the models across classes and brands that are noteworthy.

The overdue model maintenance for the elitist Range Rover is just right in the coming year. The five-meter-long symbiosis of off-road vehicles and luxury limousine not only gets a lookup in driver assistance and operating systems, but also LED headlights, more chic inside and a new navigation unit.

Range Rover Dieselhybrid flopped 2013
While most engines are largely adopted, there will be a new plug-in hybrid as an additional engine variant from next spring. A diesel hybrid was already presented in the Range Rover at the end of 2013, which, however, with its combination of electric module and V6 diesel, despite lower real consumption and a gigantic surcharge of around 20.000 euros flopped.
It remains to be seen whether the new edition in our latitudes will be better, because there is now contemporary plug-in technology, which means that the Range Rover PHEV can be charged at the socket. But the 85 kW / 115 hp electrical module, which invisibly does its service in the case of the eight-seven automatic gearbox automatic, is mandatory to a two-liter four-cylinder turbo with 221 kW / 300 hp. The system output of a total of 297 kW / 404 hp sounds a lot in relation to the 340 hp of the V8 diesel, but is anything but sovereign in the 2.5-ton luxury mobile.

Four cylinders – too little for the image
The maximum torque at 640 Nm is almost at the diesel level and once the colossus flows easily on the American highways in traffic, apart from the pale sound, there is hardly anything to be accused of. But 220 km/h are a little too little in this league, at least according to German standards, while the acceleration is at least fine with 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds. The Range Rover PHEV can cover up to 51 kilometers through its 13 kWh battery, while the combined fuel consumption in the beautiful PHEV process is said to be 2.8 liters.

However, if there is dynamic performance requirements on the part of the driver, it looks different, because then the Range Rover P400e plug-in hybrid cannot cover its manageable two liters of displacement as a main drive source. The automatic transmission struggles with the support of the electric motor to physical strength to press the high weight and the cylinder quartet into the background, but you can quickly notice after a few miles on the highways around Los Angeles and the city center of the millions of millions that this drive combination is a little too little of good is.

Especially for such a luxury off-road vehicle, which has to measure itself with models such as the Bentley Bentayga, the BMW X7 or a Cadillac Escalade, the spoiled customer simply requires more. After all, this league is more about image and four cylinders are clearly too little. This is noticeable by models such as the Volvo XC90, Audi A8 or BMW X5 Hybrid for years. BMW therefore implanted its hybrid versions of X5 and 7 in the coming year a stronger and more image -prone six -cylinder, which reaches into the ropes with the electric module.
Purchase tip remains another

The further details of the model maintenance, on the other hand, did the Range Rover well. The interior now presents itself in the design and with functions of the smaller bike, although the operating and navigation system of the competition from BMW or Audi still drives significantly afterwards. The base price for the well-equipped Range Rover P400E Plug-in-Hybrid Vogue is 120.400 euros. The noble autobiography costs with equipment details such as 21-inch wheels, panoramic machine roof, pixel LED headlights, perforated semi-nilin leather and air-conditioned massage seats at least 136.100 euros. The purchase tip therefore remains the 340 hp SD V8, the around 3.000 euros is cheaper.

Clearly, a car with approx. 2.5 tons and 400 hp in life never reaches less than 3.0 l/100km but is complained about the Range Rover. As the pamera with approx. 500 hp and an average consumption of less than 3.0 l/100km were tested there were no comments.
