Land Rover's appearance at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show will showcase its new hybrid technology when the 'Range_e' makes its auto show debut.
This is the first outing for Land Rover's diesel hybrid plug-in concept, and is one of several working prototypes currently being developed at Land Rover's design and engineering centre in the UK.
'Range_e' is based on a Range Rover Sport. It features a 3.0-liter TDV6 diesel engine with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. Matched with a plug-in parallel diesel hybrid system, it offers a premium SUV that can run as a pure electric vehicle.
The 'Range_e' is the first capable 4WD model from Land Rover to achieve 89g of CO2. It has an EV range of 20 miles, a top speed of around 120mph and an overall range of 690 miles.
More details will be released in Geneva.
