Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid

As global consumers are becoming more concerned about environmental issues, popular vehicle manufacturers are trying to present fuel efficient vehicles that may emit less pollutants. Recently, the Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid was introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show that created ripples in the 'green going market'.

This new "Range e" Land Rover PHEV is equipped with a technically advanced diesel-electric power-train that is expected to be available in the market with the future Land Rover models. The first diesel-electric Land Rover hybrid is scheduled to be launched in 2013.

It is certainly a positive move by the automobile industry towards a greener and better future. The model of 'Range e' is inspired by the Range Rover Sport model and it works with the existing technology of 245PS 3.0-litre TDV6 engine. It uses an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission along with a 69kW electric motor. The new Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid model is a parallel hybrid system and it can also work with a 14.2kW/h lithium-ion battery and this battery system can be recharged by using a 240 Volts external power source.

The battery can be recharged by using a standard domestic power supply and users can accomplish a complete recharge within four hours. The same technology is also expected to be used with 'EV range' of Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid models and these models will be able to support almost all short journeys in urban area.

Thus, these new Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid models are expected to be highly suitable for those areas where it is necessary to contain the fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Nevertheless, the major benefit of these innovative Land Rover models is the fact that they will continually reduce CO2 emissions even during the longer journeys by using the diesel hybrid 'drive-train'. This is certainly an innovative step that will have a positive impact on latest emission technologies.

The CO2 emissions of new 'Range-e' models of Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid during long journeys is approximately 89g/km. However, the maximum system output of these models is 339PS while the maximum speed is around 193kph (120 mph). These models with Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid system offer fuel consumption economy of 85 miles per gallon.

The 'Range-e' Land Rovers are certainly amazing vehicles and so are all other models of JLR. However, the success of these models will depend on the prices at which the manufacturer of these latest plug-in hybrid models will offer them. The well known Automobile producers TATA group is offering these Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid models and it will be interesting to see how TATA introduces them in market.
