Range Rover & Range Rover Sport diesels get RDE2 mild hybrid diesels

The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport line-ups have been updated with new in-line six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines with 48V mild hybrid systems.

The updated Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are available to order now

The replacements to the previous V6 and V8 diesels, the new engines join the ranges alongside the plug-in hybrids and come with 300 and 350hp outputs. For the Range Rover, the new mild-hybrid 3.0-litre D300 Ingenium diesel is capable of up to 33.0mpg on the WLTP test cycle, emitting from 225g/km CO2. The more powerful D350 achieves up to 30.8mpg with CO2 emissions of 241g/km on the WLTP cycle.

In the case of the Range Rover Sport, the new D350 diesel powers the car from 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds, offering 700Nm of torque and with CO2 emissions of 237g/km.

The new units join the growing range of RDE2-compliant diesels in the Jaguar Land Rover line-up. Such diesels avoid the 4% Benefit-in-Kind diesel surcharge – benefiting drivers but also operators too through reduced Class 1A National Insurance Contributions – and also qualifying for lower Vehicle Excise Duty. However, in the case of the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport diesels, they already sit in the maximum 37% BiK bracket.

The new engines have been introduced alongside a range of MY 2021 updates for both models, including special edition models and the introduction of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard across the range, with 4G Wi-Fi connections for up to eight devices.

Both models are available to order now, with the Range Rover Sport priced from £65,295 and the Range Rover priced from £83,465 OTR.
