The P400e drivetrain combines a four-cylinder Ingenium gas engine with an electric motor and a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The gas engine contributes 296 horsepower, while the electric motor adds its own 141 horsepower. Total system power is 398 horsepower, with a healthy 472 lb-ft of torque.
That actually puts the P400e just one step behind Range Rover’s latest 5.0-liter supercharged V8 in terms of power and torque. In comparison, the automaker’s 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel offers 254 hp and 443 lb-ft, while the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 gas engine offers up to 380 hp.
Range Rover says the hybrid is good for a 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds, and a top speed of 137 mph. Two driving modes will be offered. The default, Parallel Hybrid mode, will automatically switch between gas and electric power depending on driving conditions, to deliver an on-road experience as close to that of an ICE Range Rover as possible.
