Report: The new Range Rover Hybrid could come stateside, including a Range Rover Sport Hybrid

Land Rover showcased a significant new model to their Range Rover lineup at Frankfurt recently and it was the world’s first ever Range Rover hybrid, which also happened to be a diesel-based hybrid.

Mated to Land Rover’s current SDV6 turbodiesel and a 35kW electric motor integrated into the ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic, total output for the Range Rover Diesel Hybrid is 335hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph is said to clock in at 6.7 seconds while capable of returning a maximum of 44.1 mpg.

Originally, reports indicated that the diesel-hybrid technology would only be bespoke to the British market. Now, according to TheDetroitBureau, the new Range Rover Diesel Hybrid will “eventually” make it to the North American market.

“It’s not a matter of ‘if,’ but ‘when,’” Jaguar-Land Rover US’s outgoing CEO, Andy Goss told TheDetroitBureau.

The hybrid technology will also eventually make it to the Range Rover Sport Hybrid, allowing for a fuel economy rating somewhere around 44.1 mpg.
