Range Rover Hybrid: So clean like never in the dirt

The deepest rooting through terrain and conquering the urban jungle in a proper offroader prepares fun. That this sustainability and off-road capabilities not must mutually, Land Rover proves with the new Range Rover Hybrid . which will celebrate its market launch in the spring of 2014. It remains true: The latest member of the British is still best for terrain features and powerful engines for the necessary off-road power.

Land Rover that takes a leading role, for the Range Rover is the first hybrid premium diesel SUV in hybrid construction.

The British put the Range Rover hybrid on the parallel hybrid design in which the torque generated by an internal combustion engine and an electric motor is simultaneously available on request. The conventional drive takes a powerful 3.0-liter engine with 292 hp SDV6.

Saves space housed in the eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the torque converter as the core technology of parallel hybrid system, a synchronous AC motor with permanent magnet that turns out. The electric motor produces extra 35 kW/48 hp and 170 Nm of torque, which can be called separately or in duet with the diesel. In parallel operation, the drive unit provides a total output of 250 kW/340 hp at 4,000 rpm and transmits 700 Nm of torque to the crankshaft.

Thus equipped, the Range Rover Hybrid accelerates in just 6.9 seconds to 100 km / h and reaches a top speed of 218 km / h. The hybrid team provides similar performance as the larger SDV8 unit of the Range Rover. With a combined fuel consumption of 6.4 liters per 100 kilometers and CO2 emissions of 169 g / km, the Range Rover Hybrid is a clear exclamation mark in the premium SUV segment.

Three operating modes are available in the Range Rover hybrid for choice: pure diesel-powered, pure electric drive or parallel drive. In pure electric mode, and when fully charged, the Range Rover hybrid braces a top speed of just 50 km / h with a range of about 1.6 kilometers before the turbo diesel seamlessly takes over the drive. For a short-term peak power of the electric motor offers a boost function, in which he produced together with the diesel engine a particularly dynamic driving torque, for example when overtaking.

The necessary electrical power provides a lithium-ion high-performance battery with 72 cells and a storage capacity of 1.7 kWh. Their charge is made by recovering kinetic energy during braking and coasting by the electric motor functions as a generator producing electricity. Even under extreme driving conditions in the area is designated as the recuperation process to work reliably.

The right temperature, a separate cooling circuit, fed from the main cooling circuit of the engine provides. An extremely robust housing made of boron steel protects the built underbody battery unit from damaging mechanical influences and enables the full off-road capability of the SUV. All electrical components are also protected against water, so that the fording depth of 90 centimeters sister models of the Range Rover hybrid also available.

The entire hybrid system weighs, including the battery pack, less than 120 kilograms. Thanks to its all-aluminum construction, the Range Rover Hybrid is still much lighter than the classic predecessor.

The interface between the driver and hybrid drive is a display in the instrument cluster, which displays all relevant data transparently. While the default mode indicates the charge status of the battery, an advanced mode provides additional information on the hybrid unit. These include a performance and an Eco Off display and a display for EV mode.

The latter indicates whether the vehicle is in pure electric mode.

As most Land Rover of all time, the Range Rover Hybrid also features a variety of efficiency-enhancing measures. These include, among other modern stop / start technology, electric cooling fan, a high-efficiency alternator, an intelligent climate control, electric power steering and active aerodynamics-enhancing slats on the radiator grille. It proves its reliability and performance, the Range Rover hybrid currently on a 16,000-kilometer test drive from Britain to India in the footsteps of the legendary Silk Road.
