Land Rover introduces the 2020 Range Rover Sport HST, with a new biturbo engine and a mild hybrid 48-volt system.
The plug-in hybrid Range Rover P400e gets the company of a mild hybrid Range Rover Sport. It is being pushed into the nose by a brand-new Ingenium engine, a six-in-line, two-cylinder turbo, with a cylinder capacity of 3 liters, a peak power of 400 hp and a maximum torque of 550 Nm. Thanks to an electric compressor (e-booster), the British terrain endurance sprints from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.2 seconds.
The mild hybrid 48-volt system also helps to keep fuel consumption under control, by recuperating braking energy and storing it in a compact battery pack. Range Rover promises a standard consumption of 9.3 liters per 100 kilometers and a CO2 emission of 213 grams per kilometer, albeit calculated according to the NEDC protocol. The arrival of this Sport HST is part of Land Rover’s plan to provide an electrified version of each model by 2020. The 48-volt technology will soon be delivered to the new Range Rover Evoque.
