Land Rover Range Rover PHEVs Get 19 Miles EPA Electric Range
EV mode doubles the efficiency of Land Rover’s plug-in hybrids, but it’s still just… 42 MPGe – 802 Wh/mi (498 Wh/km)
Land Rover’s plug-in hybrids are pretty special and niche in the U.S. market – luxurious (with high price tags) and all-wheel-drive, but how about their EPA all-electric range and energy efficiency?
According to the EPA’s website, both models: Range Rover P400e and the smaller Range Rover Sport P400e received the same ratings.
The all-electric range is 19 miles (30.6 km), which is not much, but considering the 13.1 kWh battery and weight of around 5,500 lbs (2,500 kg) and the not too aerodynamic shape, it’s not a surprise. The energy consumption in EV mode is 42 MPGe – 802 Wh/mi (498 Wh/km), one of the highest we have ever seen in PHEVs.
