Powered by a SDV6 3.0 litre diesel engine connected to a 35 kW electric motor, the total combined output is 335 hp, which is delivered through an 8–speed ZF automatic transmission. The hybrid model zooms from 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, for a top speed of 218 km/h, while the Sport version is clocked at 6.7 seconds, with a 225 km/h top speed.
In order to demonstrate their ruggedness and reliability, 3 hybrid Range Rovers will start a 16,000 km trek on August 22nd from Solihull, home of Land Rover England, to Mumbai, India, home of Tata Motors Headquarters.
To achieve this feat, the journey will be broken into 10 separate steps, through 12 countries, riding the world’s most treacherous roads and mountain passes, including the legendary Silk Road, that connects the Mediterranean to Asia.
