The new 2023 Range Rover P440e extended-range plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle is expected to earn a 48 mile EV range estimate from the EPA. A range of this distance is enough to cover nearly all the trips made by most U.S. drivers according to driver behavior studies. With its ability to preserve EV range for driving in dense urban areas and operate as a hybrid on the highway, the new Range Rover will operate with reduced or zero emissions in all circumstances.

Nick Collins, Executive Director of Vehicle Programmes, Jaguar Land Rover, said, “New Range Rover is the most desirable, elegant, and capable luxury SUV in the world. Our efficient new Extended-Range Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle powertrain elevates the driving experience with a fine balance of performance, refinement, and efficiency, enabling owners to complete whisper-quiet zero-emissions journeys.”

As the respected EV advocate Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield explained in a detailed story for Green Car Reports, around 98 percent of all single-trip journeys are under 50 miles in length, with trips over 70 miles in length accounting for just one percent of all single-trip journeys. A vehicle like the Range Rover P440e extended-range plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle can operate during the typical work week as an EV, but also take extended road trips without the hassles of charging on the go.

Joining the P440e Extended-Range Plug-in Hybrid model, the New Range Rover will also be available with a choice of a mild-hybrid six-cylinder powertrain, plus an all-new Twin Turbo V8. Customers can choose between four-, five- and seven-seat interiors across Standard (LWB) and Long Wheelbase (LWB) body designs. Range Rover says that its first all-electric Land Rover vehicle will join the line-up in 2024.
