Straight-six performance and efficient mild hybrid refinement for Range Rover

Range Rover is cleaner and more responsive thanks to improved efficiency and more immediate power delivery of Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain

“Continued investment in our engine manufacturing plant in Wolverhampton is delivering new clean and efficient engine technology for our customers, giving the greatest breadth of choice yet. The P400 MHEV option on Range Rover Sport, with its refined, purposeful power delivery, has been well received by UK customers so we anticipate a welcome reception to this addition to the Range Rover range of vehicles.” RAWDON GLOVER, MANAGING DIRECTOR, JAGUAR LAND ROVER UK

The latest 400HP Ingenium engine delivers 550Nm of torque that powers the new Range Rover from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds and to a top speed of 140mph.

With the introduction of an electric supercharger that delivers immediate boost by spooling in 0.5s up to 65000rpm, the smooth and responsive six cylinder engine provides an impressive torque response, comparable with engines with much bigger displacement. This is thanks to the optimal coordination between electric supercharger and twin-scroll turbocharger, which virtually eliminates turbo lag.

The innovative combination of advanced features includes a twin-scroll turbocharger that, alongside Continuous Variable Valve Lift, boosts power by helping the new engine breathe with maximum efficiency. Not only does this optimise performance and fuel economy, while reducing emissions, it does so with the customary poise and refinement customers expect from a Range Rover.

These features, underpinned by the latest Ingenium petrol engine, form part of a Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain designed to bring enhanced efficiency to the range with fuel economy of 30.4mpg (9.3L/100km) and CO2 emissions of 212g/km* (NEDC equivalent combined). It is the latest step taken by Jaguar Land Rover to ensure it offers an electrified option on all new models from 2020.

Based around a new start-stop system, the latest 3.0-litre engine is paired with an electric motor that can harvest energy through deceleration and store it in a 48V battery. This energy can then be re-deployed through torque-assist, reducing CO2 emissions and the work load on the engine.
