Land Rover’s first foray into plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) was confirmed recently, with news that the UK’s biggest premium car manufacturer will be producing two Range Rover models incorporating the cutting edge technology.

Press reactions to the New Range Rover and New Range Rover Sport P400e PHEV models have been universally positive, with many journalists celebrating the new vehicles’ clean, green and cost effective city-centre-friendly credentials alongside their peerless off-road capability.

See below for our round-up of some of the media’s initial impressions.

Car Magazine
The P400e’s combination of relatively low running costs and potential for near-silent progress in traffic will make it the Range Rover to go for.

Unquestionably it will be the 64g/km emissions and 101mpg average fuel economy along with the 31-mile all-electric range figures that will appeal to many, especially company car drivers. Rating 9/10.

Land Rover offers further proof you don't have to compromise with a hybrid… All the luxury taste without the luxury fuel calories.

The P400e can run for 31 miles on battery alone… Battery charging time is under three hours… My test drive of the Range Rover PHEV prototypes revealed that the gas/electric models had no issues dealing with short, modestly challenging off-road trails.

No manufacturer to date has been able to deliver a hybrid 4WD vehicle capable of driving off-road trails in low range solely on electricity-until now. The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport P400e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) will be the first… The most interesting part of these vehicles is their ability to drive off-road in complete silence - with no tailpipe emissions. It’s a more serene way to crawl along a tough and twisty trail.
