A week after it lifted the veil on its plug-in hybrid Range Rover Sport, Land Rover has wheeled out a similarly green version of its stablemate – the Range Rover P400e PHEV. Along with the addition of the new drivetrain there are a few aesthetic tweaks on the outside for 2018, while a redesigned cabin and new-look infotainment system make for extra comfort on the inside.

Just like the Range Rover Sport PHEV, the P400e pairs a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter petrol engine with a lithium-ion battery and 85 kW (114-hp) electric motor. This hooks up to an eight-speed ZF transmission to produce 297 kW (400 hp), which Land Rover says fires the P400e from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.8 seconds. Top speed, meanwhile, is listed as 137 mph (220 km/h).

The P400e has a NEDC fuel economy of 101 mpg (2.8 L per 100 km) and NEDC C02 emissions rating of 64/g per km. Drivers can choose between the default Parallel Hybrid mode or the electric-only mode, where they should get 31 mi (51 km) out of each charge.

Land Rover has also tuned its Terrain Response 2 system to work more intelligently with the electric motor and distribute torque to all four wheels, which it says should mean greater control during low-speed, off road maneuvering.

The exterior has received a subtle refresh with a lengthened clamshell bonnet and new-look grille featuring a gloss black surround and new mesh finishes. Both bumpers have been revised, with widened vent blades featuring up front and integrated tailpipes up back. The recharge socket is hidden behind a Land Rover badge on the front grille, with a full recharge taking around 7.5 hours and a rapid-charging option paring that back to 2 hours and 45 minutes.

As you'd expect, Land Rover places a lot of emphasis on the passenger experience. The redesigned cabin features brand new seat frames that allow for 24-way movement, along with wider and deeper foams and heated arm rests. There are 17 connection ports including HDMI, USB, 12-V and domestic plug sockets, along with 4G Wi-Fi hotspots for eight devices. The back seats are also wider and softer, can recline to 40-degrees and feature no less than 25 massage programs.

Land Rover is also using the P400e to introduce its new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which consists of two HD 10-inch touch screens on the center console featuring a customizable home screen and voice recognition. The thinking behind the dual screen approach is that users will be able to multi-task more easily, by keeping a map open on the top screen, while controlling music underneath, for example.

There are some other notable convenience-oriented bells and whistles, including three-zone ambient lighting that can be tuned to different colors and intensities, a gesture-controlled sunroof and the introduction of Land Rover's Activity Key wristband, which means joggers and swimmers can go about their exercise without needing to carry a key with them.

The 2018 Range Rover P400e is available for order now and is priced from £79,595 (US$107,600).

Hybrids and economy seem irrelevant for an a large £80,000 vehicle. But if it runs in a city using just electric mode then guess some benefit - Ignoring of course the brake pad air emissions as mentioned in another NewAtlas article - and its a lot of weight to brake!
