However, the 2023 Range Rover will be even better as the hybrid powertrain is about to arrive with drastic upgrades.
This SUV sits on a relatively new platform which provides the better off-road capability and more pleasant ride quality. Moreover, Range Rover now also offers a three-row interior layout. Now, the time is to introduce an improved hybrid variant. This version will deliver higher efficiency, more power, and much more. Without further ado, here’s everything we know so far.
Land Rover Range Rover PHEV Specs
The new 2023 Land Rover Range Rover PHEV will provide astonishing performances. It is a combination of a six-cylinder engine and a 105-kilowatt electric motor. This output provides an astonishing 434 horsepower. A 38.2kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack is also on offer. Thanks to that, the new Range Rover PHEV will provide an all-electric driving range of 48 miles.
That is another astonishing figure. To compare, the current Range Rover PHEV provides 19 miles of driving range. Reportedly, the all-electric Range Rover will go on sale at some point in 2024. Of course, this is not official yet.
Charging Time and Driving Range

It lets drivers use public charging stations. Land Rover says the new Range Rover PHEV can charge 80 percent of its battery in less than an hour.
This is one of the few other PHEVs that can charge 80 percent of its range in 25 minutes. For an instance, Mitsubishi Outlander can charge 80% in 25 minutes as well. However, Outlander PHEV provides 24 miles of driving range.
