Well there have been rumors and now a confirmation. Land Rover has developed a prototype for a Range Rover Sport diesel plug-in hybrid. And the top secret photos were taken a local shopping mall? Yes, it's true. The staff of Green Car Reports was able to capture the elusive Range Rover Sport diesel plug-in hybrid plugged into a convenient public charging station across the pond in?
The littlest Land Rover is stirring up lots of buzz. The 2012 Range Rover Evoque is the smallest and lightest Rover ever, and it's already been named Motor Trend magazine's SUV of the Year and is a semi-finalist for North American Truck of the Year. This luxury crossover can handle terrain, but it carries less rough n' tumble hardware than it's larger Range Rover counterpart?
Land Rover has long been renowed as a symbol of rugged prestige, excellence and innovation in luxury SUVs. What they have never been recognized for is fuel efficiency. The popular and powerful Range Rover gets about 18mpg highway with a V-8 engine producing a maximum 510 horsepower and 461 foot-pounds of torque.
But that's all about to change.
