Land Rover announced its lineup for the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and it includes the hybrid electric prototype, known as the ‘Range_e’, which makes its public debut showcasing the firm’s in-development hybrid system.
the Range_e is based on the Range Rover Sport and features a 3.0-litre TDV6 diesel with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, matched with a plug-in parallel diesel hybrid systemthat gives it projected 89 g/km of CO2 emissions. It will also have a electric range of nearly 20 miles and a top speed of around 120mph.
Besides the Range_e Land Rover’s booth will also have on display the new Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition, The Discovery 4 ‘Landmark’ Limited Editions, and of course the hotly anticipated Evoque.
Here’s a quick overview of each model:
Land Rover will be announcing full European pricing (excluding UK) and will be showing a range of exciting options available, giving Range Rover Evoque customers the opportunity to create a vehicle that is truly tailored to them.
The choices range from designer exterior packs, contrasting colours on the roof and spoiler, immaculately-trimmed designer interiors, and a range of desirable technologies to maximise comfort and enjoyment on board. Rather than using a traditional trim hierarchy, the Range Rover Evoque gives customers the choice of three design themes: the cool and contemporary ‘Pure’, the luxurious ‘Prestige’, and the bold and sporting ‘Dynamic’. Customers can further tailor these themes with different designer interiors, option packs, standalone options and accessory items, providing even more freedom to specify the car of their choice.
The Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition is the most luxurious Range Rover ever. With unrivalled levels of luxury for both driver and passenger, the Range Rover Ultimate Edition offers an assortment of super-premium features including hand crafted soft feel leathers; a yacht inspired teak floor and rear cabin iPads* as standard.
The 2011 Discovery 4 ‘Landmark’ Limited Editions with Black and White themes are new variants bringing a fresh, more contemporary sense of design to the latest Discovery 4 line-up. Both models blend high-end interiors with bold, contemporary colour schemes. In keeping with the core appeal of the Discovery 4, both of these Limited Editions offer on-road refinement to match most executive saloons, the versatility of a large people carrier and unrivalled off-road capability. The Discovery 4 ‘Landmark’ is now on-sale in the UK priced from £46,945 on the road.
