At this year’s Beijing Motor Show, Land Rover introduced a hybrid variant of the Range Rover Long Wheelbase which represents the very first diesel-electric hybrid to be offered in China. Its powertrain consists of a 3.0-liter SDV6 working together with an electric motor to provide a combined power output of 340 PS and 700 Nm delivered to the wheels with help from a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox. Thanks to this hardware setup, the vehicle has a fuel consumption of just 6.4 liters / 100 km and CO2 emissions of 169 g/km, impressive figures taking into account it tips the scales at a rather hefty 2,394 kg.
The Range Rover Hybrid Long Wheelbase can travel in electric mode for one mile and when running on electric power it is capable of hitting a top speed of 30 mph. With the power of both the conventional engine and electric motor combined, the SUV will need 6.9 seconds until 62 mph and will hit a top speed of 135 mph.
