Hybrid Land Rover range: current models

There are currently 6 hybrid models in Land Rover's lineup.

Land Rover Defender 110

The Land Rover Defender has awesome off-road abilities, even as a plug-in hybrid. It has a 104PS (103hp) electric motor and a 300PS (296hp) four-cylinder petrol engine. Officially, it can travel up to 32 miles on 100% electric power. We loved the Land Rover Defender and gave it a 9/10 in our review.

Land Rover Discovery Sport

The Land Rover Discovery Sport plug-in hybrid (with petrol engine) has an official electric only range of up to 37.3 miles and CO2 emissions of 35 g/km. When we tested it, the plus points were for its spacious, luxurious cabin, comfortable cruising manners and a decent electric range; however the negatives were that the petrol engine can be thirsty, it can’t have the option of seven seats because of space taken by the battery, and it’s handling wasn’t as sharp as some alternatives. It received a score of 7/10.

If you can’t conveniently plug-in for charging at home, then there’s also a choice of two diesel mild hybrids in the Discovery Sport range, one with 204hp and the other with 163hp. 

Range Rover

The Range Rover is a big and heavy car, so it is impressive that the plug-in hybrid version has an electric range of up to 74 miles and CO2 emissions from just 16g/km. It has a 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine with a 160kW motor.

Range Rover Evoque

The Range Rover Evoque plug-in hybrid (PHEV) has an official range on 100% electric power of 38 miles and CO2 emissions from 33g/km. It has an 80 kW electric motor. The Evoque got a score of 8/10 in our review which noted the plug-in hybrid was the most economical.

There are also petrol mild hybrid and diesel mild hybrid Evoques available. These don’t require plugging-in and use their battery to support the performance of the engine to help it use less fuel.

Range Rover Sport

There’s a choice of hybrid models for the Range Rover Sport; the mild hybrid charges itself (so never has to be plugged-in) supplements the engine so it doesn’t have to use quite as much fuel.

The plug-in (PHEV) Range Rover Sport achieves a range on electric of up to 74 miles.

Range Rover Velar

There are two mild hybrid Range Rover Velars, plus a plug-in full hybrid (PHEV). The first mild hybrid has a 300hp diesel engine and the second has a 4.4-litre petrol V8 engine with 635hp and does 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. 

The PHEV version has a 160kW motor and 3.0-litre, six cylinder engine with an impressive electric-only range of up to 74 miles and CO2 emissions of just 17g/km. It’s also fast, with a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds.

Land Rover hybrid FAQs

Like any hybrid, Land Rover hybrid models use the instant torque provided by the electric motor to boost the power delivery to the wheels. This saves the petrol or diesel engine having to do it all itself so helps it use less fuel and reduce its emissions. Mild and full hybrids recharge themselves while driving, so don’t need plugging in, and can power the car on 100% electric for short distances. If you can charge an EV at home, then the plug-in hybrid on some models can drive over 70 miles on 100% electric.
The Range Rover Evoque hybrid starts from £40,115. Going up in price from there is the Land Rover Discovery Sport hybrid, from £43,445. Next is the Range Rover Velar, from £54,490, then the Land Rover Defender 110 hybrids starting from £63,670.  The Range Rover Sport hybrid starts from £75,255 but the Range Rover hybrid at the top of the range cost at least £104,025.
The best hybrid Land Rover is probably the Defender if off-roading is important to you, or the Range Rover if you want the ultimate luxury SUV; but, for the best performance hybrid, then the Range Rover Velar hybrid with the V8 engine is going to be hard to beat. The Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport are also tempting hybrids at a more modest price. 
There’s quite a large range of Land Rover hybrids with diesel and petrol engines so MPG figures will vary a lot. Thankfully, the electric battery and motor in the hybrid models make them more efficient with better MPG than standard engines.

One of the more economical Land Rover hybrid models is the Range Rover Evoque diesel hybrid with fuel consumption up to 44.0 mpg.
