Range Rover Hybrid to Debut at Frankfurt 2013
Although details are still scarce, Frith said that the target CO2 emissions for the hybrid variant with a diesel V6 is about 169g/km. In addition, he mentioned that the car’s seven-seat capacity and luggage space won’t be affected by the hybrid hardware which will be mounted under the floor.
Asked if the 2014 Range Rover Sport hybrid will feature a motor fitted between the diesel engine and the ZF eight-speed transmission, Frith said “it’s very safe to assume that”.
As we already told you, the Range Rover Sport will gain two more conventional diesel-powered version in the United States, the 3.0-liter TDV6, rated at 258 HP, and the 4.4-liter SDV8, which is good for 339 HP. However, the hybrid won't be available over the Pond until Land Rover develops a gasoline/electric motor combo.
