2018 Range Rover update LEAKED on video

Significantly, the 2018 Range Rover will also be offered with a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid (PHEV) option, giving well-to-do company-car customers a tax-friendly engine option previously missing from the range.

Earlier this month, Land Rover unveiled the first of many electrified SUVs it plans to release in the coming years: the 2019 Range Rover Sport P400e.

The updated 2018 Range Rover has gone official, just a day after it was leaked in an online video.

Acceleration from 0-62mph officially takes 6.8 seconds but, perhaps more importantly, the P400e Range Rover has an official economy figure of 101mpg, emits just 64g/km of Carbon dioxide (for a low 13% Benefit-in-Kind tax rate) and can travel in near-silent electric-only mode for up to 31 miles on a single charge.

Range Rover claim the PHEV can drive for up to 51km on pure electric power, and that the 13.1kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged in 2 hours 45 minutes with a 32amp wall box or 7 hours and 30 minutes when using the standard home charging points. The 2019 Range Rover P400e broke cover today and is expected to go on sale in the USA next summer. At the rear, there's a new bumper design with exposed trapezoidal tailpipes. The same is expected for the car's back bumper and lights, although this early test auto looks to be wearing the current Discovery's parts. The system, called Touch Pro Duo, features two 10.0in touchscreens - with one controlling traditional infotainment functions and a lower screen to handle vehicle and climate controls.

While full local specifications and pricing will not be confirmed until closer to launch, the revised Range Rover line-up will kick off from $190,000 before on-road costs, which is $6700 dearer than its current starting price.

Other additions include a "Nanoe" cabin air ionisation system, a gesture-controlled sunblind and three-zone ambient lighting. It allows you to lock the main auto key, safely inactive, in the Range Rover, while you take off on your outdoor pursuits.

Inside, front-row seats are wider and comfier, with adjustment controls moved to the door panels. When in position, the drinks cabinet contained within is accessible, but at the press of a button the whole unit slides out of the way, either allowing a third rear-seat passenger to sit in the middle, or providing occupants with easier access.

The most powerful 5.0-litre V8 resides under the SVAutobiography Dynamic's bonnet, with power and torque up by 12kW and 20Nm respectively. For 2018, the flagship model gets an uprated 416kW/700Nm 5.0-litre supercharged V8 (up from 404kW).

In total, there are six different engines available across the range.
