The Range Rover, Land Rover’s flagship SUV, was redesigned for 2022 with quicker acceleration at the top end, new architecture to support the SUV’s off-road pursuits and a first-ever three-row interior. Land Rover promised that a new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle would follow the arrival of the gas-powered SUV, and the Range Rover extended-range PHEV is now available for ordering. Land Rover also revealed more details on the SUV’s all-electric range and charging capability.

Longer Range

The 2023 Range Rover PHEV gets a combined 434 horsepower from its hybrid powertrain (a six-cylinder engine and a 105-kilowatt electric motor, the latter powered by a 38.2-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery). Although it has not yet been rated by the EPA, Land Rover estimates that the PHEV will get 48 miles of all-electric range; that’s less than Land Rover’s initial estimates but up considerably over the current 2021 Land Rover PHEV, which gets an EPA-rated 19 miles. Following the PHEV, an all-electric Range Rover is expected to debut in 2024, but details on power and range have not yet been revealed.

Fast-Charging Capability

In addition to the improved range, the 2023 Range Rover PHEV benefits from 50-kW DC fast charging. A feature usually relegated to fully electric cars, DC capability allows drivers to use public charging stations; according to Land Rover, the new Range Rover PHEV can charge 80% of its battery in under an hour. The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, one of the few other PHEVs with DC fast-charging capability, can charge 80% of range in 25 minutes — that range is just 24 miles.

Versus the Competition

The Range Rover PHEV competes among a small group of luxury plug-in hybrid SUVs, like the BMW X5 xDrive45e, Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid and Volvo XC90 Recharge. While the extended-range model offers the highest all-electric range among competitors, it also comes with the highest price tag. The XC90 Recharge gets an EPA-rated 18 miles of all-electric range and starts at $65,895 (all prices include destination charges), and the Cayenne E-Hybrid is EPA-rated for 17 miles of all-electric range and starts at $84,650. The X5 xDrive45e comes closest to Land Rover, with an EPA-rated 31-mile all-electric range and starts at $64,695.

Pricing and Release Date

The Range Rover P440e extended-range PHEV is available to order on Land Rover’s website and starts at $106,250.
