2011 Land Rover Range e Hybrid Concept

March 16th, 2011 by By auto # Land Rover

Land Rover Range e concept is based on the Range Rover Sport and uses the current 245PS 3.0-litre TDV6 diesel engine, working with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and a 69kW electric motor. Using a parallel hybrid system, with a 14.2kW/h lithium-ion battery that can be recharged from an external 240V power source, Land Rover Range_e can be driven on electric power alone for more than 20 miles, with zero harmful tailpipe emissions. Overall CO2 emissions are just 89 g / km, but Land Rover Range e Concept has a maximum power of 339PS system and a top speed of 120 mph, offering fuel economy of 85mpg. Improved fuel efficiency from the hybrid system makes 690 miles possible on a full tank of fuel.

The Land Rover’s on-going commitment to building vehicles that are more fuel and emissions-efficient reaches another milestone at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show with the first presentation of Land Rover Range e concept. The Land Rover Range e Concept is one of a series of projects supported by the UK Government’s Technology Strategy Board and five prototypes are currently engaged in a test program with other members of the Land Rover CABLED – Coventry and Birmingham demonstrators low emissions – a consortium. Land Rover hopes its plug-in hybrid will be on the market in the near future, following on from the debut of its first standard diesel-electric hybrid models from 2013.
