The hybrid RRS mixes a 3.0-liter V6 with a 35 kW electric motor, offering an output of 335 hp, but the system doesn't feature a plug-in feature.
The PHEV model coming with the facelift spied here is expected to leave the oil-burner behind, switching to Jaguar Land Rover's new Ingenium engine family for a 295 hp turbo-four that will work with a meatier electric system. To be more precise, the electric side of the powertrain will deliver around 200 hp, while offering an EV range of about 31 miles (50 kg), which is currently the norm in terms of such vehicles.
The lavish SUV will pack driving modes allowing it to offer melange between the mandatory offroading credentials and features helping the drivers make the most out of the vehicle's efficiency.
The aesthetic changes set to be introduced by the facelift will fully cover the front fascia, while we could even see the British designers restyling the hood. The visual tweaks should be a bit more limited at the back, but still serious enough to allow us to make a clear difference between the two two incarnations of the high-riding vehicle.
While the revamp will bring obvious cabin changes, from a few design features to updated infotainment features, we expect the British brand's luxury dedication to determine the company to introduce custom cabin features for the hybrid model.
P.S.: If all this hybrid talk is music to your ears, but you'd rather go for the Range Rover instead of the Sport model, you should check out the green spyshots we recently delivered.
