The Land Rover Range Rover Sport PHEV SUV


The famed Land Rover Range Rover Sport (simply known as Range Rover Sport) luxury SUV commenced production in 2005. The second generation was introduced in 2013. The compact luxury SUV received a facelift in 2017. The SUV is now also available as a mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) and a plug-in electric vehicle (PHEV). PHEVs are perfect for individuals and families:

  • Keen to take a step towards lower emission and environment-friendly driving.
  • Need a vehicle for extensive and regular long-distance travelling.
  • Have limited access to private or public EV charging stations.
  • Do a number of short commutes (30 miles and below) on a regular basis.
  • Keen to save money.

It is a widely known fact, in that, the average distance of a trip in the UK is a mere 12 miles. An average vehicle in the UK will travel between 8k and 10k miles per annum i.e. less than 30 miles per day. The newest eco-friendly PHEVs on the market will average between 20 to 30 zero-emission electric miles on a fully-charged EV battery. In most plug-in electric cars the EV battery will be below 15 kWh in capacity.

The Range Rover Sport plug-in electric SUV has a 13.1 kWh EV battery with a WLTP zero-emission electric range of 25 miles. Depending on driving style, weather condition and the services used in the e-SUV, expect a real world range closer to 20 miles. However, that would be more than sufficient for most daily commutes using the EV battery i.e. driving emission-free and also saving money (the running cost per mile of an EV is far lower than a petrol or diesel car). Depending on the cost of electricity, the cost per mile for driving on electric can be as low as 3 pence per mile. Bottom-line driving on electric miles is both cost efficient and eco-friendly!

The Land Rover PHEV is practical and versatile without compromising on quality and comfort. The rear seats are comfortable for adults, with ample legroom and headroom and appropriate for most family requirements, to include, school runs, family outings, weekend trips, off-roading and a lot more! The interior quality of the plug-in electric SUV is high and driving is a pleasure, on-road or off-road!
