The Land Rover Range_E is on show at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and presents the technology the Land Rover group is testing for its future diesel-hybrid plug-in expected for 2013. The Range Rover Sport based Range_E is equipped with a three-litre V6 diesel engine and an electric motor with eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
The Range_E has 339 hp and a top speed of 193 km/hr. The 69 kW engine and 14.2 kW lithium ion batteries make for a range of 32 km in electric mode, or 1,112 km in total. Fuel consumption is about 3.36 l/100 km and CO2 emissions produced are 89 g/km. That’s all very impressive stuff and it’s time that the brands with big SUVs started rolling out this technology to help the planet. The Range-E appeared with both the three-door and five-door versions of the Range Rover Evoque, and the Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition.
