Autocar details Land Rover's hybrid plans
Instead, Autocar is now reporting that Land Rover is well into development of its own parallel hybrid system similar in function to Toyota's well-known Prius-propelling Hybrid Synergy Drive. A conventional battery pack (which we assume means lithium ion) will hold the charge and the big SUV is said to include a plug to charge up while parked.
Underhood will reportedly be a 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine mated up to a 25kW electric motor. According to the British magazine, the technology will debut on the Range Rover Sport and will allow the vehicle to score carbon emissions of just 100 g/km with an electric-only range of up to 20 miles.
