Range Rover: EV Charging Overview

The Land Rover Range Rover Sport is synonymous with sleek style and off-road prowess. But with the rise of the electric revolution, Land Rover offers a thrilling twist: the Range Rover Sport Hybrid. Combining a powerful engine with an electric motor, this luxurious SUV promises both performance and eco-friendliness. Let's dive into the specifics of its hybrid system, exploring charging times, battery range, and the changes it has undergone over time.

Under the bonnet:

The current Range Rover Sport Hybrid (P440e) boasts a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine paired with a 105kW electric motor, producing a combined 434 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. This translates to thrilling acceleration, with a 0-60 mph time of just 5.5 seconds.

EV Charging Cable:

The Range Rover Sport Hybrid features a CCS2 DC fast charging port for rapid refuelling. Plug into a 50kW charger, and you can go from 10% to 80% battery in a mere 16 minutes. For slower but convenient home charging, you have a Type 2 AC port, taking approximately 1 hour and 52 minutes to reach full charge on a 7kW charger.

Range Rover, Range Recharged:

The current iteration of the Range Rover Sport Hybrid boasts a respectable electric range of 48 miles (WLTP), allowing you to navigate city streets and short commutes emissions-free. This translates to significant fuel savings and a lighter carbon footprint, making this luxury SUV a more conscious choice.

Time Travel with Charging Spec:

Introduced in 2018, the Range Rover Sport Hybrid has seen some evolution in its charging system. Earlier models featured a slower 32kW DC fast charging option, needing around 45 minutes to reach an 80% charge. Additionally, the previous generation sported a smaller 13.1kWh battery, resulting in a lower electric range of around 28 miles.

The Future of Plug-in Luxury:

Land Rover continues to innovate in the hybrid realm. Recently announced, the updated 2024 Range Rover Sport P530 PHEV promises an even more robust hybrid experience. Boasting a larger 31.8kWh battery and a powerful 510-hp combined output, this iteration anticipates an electric range of around 70 miles.


The Land Rover Range Rover Sport Hybrid combines the best of both worlds: luxurious comfort and fuel-efficient performance. With its impressive charging options, respectable electric range, and continuous improvement, this plug-in hybrid SUV offers a glimpse into the future of off-road luxury, where sustainability and performance go hand-in-hand. For home charging you have the option for a type 2 household plugin charging cable (granny cable) or type 2 32A portable charging cable to plugin to your EV charging station.
