Range Rover – Long Wheelbase Hybrid

By - April 24th, 2014

Range Rover has just unveiled a new version of their popular Range Rover SUV, the Range Rover Long Wheelbase Hybrid, which made its official debut at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show this week. The hybrid set-up includes a diesel-electric set-up, which pairs a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine with an electric motor integrated with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Combined, the system can produce 335 Hp and 526 lb-ft of torque and an estimated 36.75 mpg while also having the ability to drive up to 30mph on electric power alone. The perks don’t stop there, however; none of the off-roading capabilities are stunted and there is even 265 less pounds to the system, which comes standard with all-wheel drive, Range Rover’s Terrain Response off-roading system, and the ability to wade up to 35-inches of water. The bad news? Those in the U.S. will have to wait until a gas-electric version hits as there are no plans for this Hybrid to make it to U.S. soil.
