Range Rover Sport plug-in hybrid will be called the P400e and is a combination of a 300hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with an 85kW electric motor providing a total of 404 hp.

0-60 mph takes 6.3 seconds and can hit a top speed of 137 mph.

The P400 offers two driving modes: Parallel Hybrid mode and EV (Electric Vehicle) mode.

Those electric motors are powered by a 13.1kWh lithium-ion battery. Rapid charging can charge the battery in 2 hours 45 minutes using a dedicated or 32amp wall box. The standard cable charges the battery in 7 hours 30 minutes.

To look at, the new Range Rover Sport gets a redesigned grille, matrix pixel LED headlights and a new bumper.
