Range Rover Plug-In Hybrid Said To Be Production Bound


According to AutoExpress (via Green Car Reports), Land Rover has now confirmed its intentions to market a plug-in hybrid Range Rover, at least to customers in Europe. What remains unclear is when such a vehicle could hit the market, and if it would be U.S.-bound.

Per Peter Richings, JLR’s chief hybrid technology engineer, a plug-in hybrid Range Rover could arrive “sometime after 2015, but before 2020.” That likely means JLR has been holding back development, awaiting the release of the new, lighter Range Rover it will be based on.

As to the choice of Range Rover as a plug-in hybrid, Richings commented that, “Range Rover is the logical place to start as buyers of this car are able to afford the technology.” The added weight of the hybrid drivetrain would also be more transparent than on smaller, lighter models.
