Priced from $95,100 plus on road costs in SD4 S trim, the Range Rover Sport P400e combines an 85kW electric motor with a 221kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine for a total system output of 297kW and 640Nm.

For 2018, the entire Range Rover Sport family benefits from a raft of updates, including styling and performance tweaks and perhaps most importantly, Land Rover's new InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system. That's 25 hp more than the previous model, allowing the Range Rover Sport SVR to go zero-to-60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds). The access point for the cable is at the front of the vehicle, while the prismatic cell lithium-ion battery is mounted at the rear beneath the boot floor.

The new vehicle gets a 296bhp petrol engine teamed up with a 114bhp electric motor, for a combined power rating of 398bhp and 472lb ft torque, and will cost from £70,800-£84,400 depending on the trim level you go for. The P400e hybrid can go up to 31 miles on battery power alone, officially returns 101mpg and should hold significant appeal for company auto customers do to its low tax liability.

Order books for the latest Range Rover Sport are now open, with the first customer deliveries expected in early 2018.

At steady speeds the auto uses Global Positioning System to work out when best to switch between fully electric and hybrid driving modes; if a steep hill is approaching, the engine will fire up to take up the slack, then cut out going downhill. The driver can choose between the save function, which prevents the battery charge dropping below a selected level, and predictive energy optimization, which uses navigation data to choose when to switch between electric and gas power. Visually, the SUV got an even more sober front fascia through a sportier bumper, slightly redesigned grille, and new headlights. The range-topper betters the previous SVR's claimed 0-100kph time by 0.2 seconds, hitting the ton mark in 4.5 seconds.

The auto maker has dabbled with electric vehicles before, most notably with the Range Rover Hybrid.

Land Rover says a full charge can take as little as two hours 45 minutes via a special home wall box, but a standard charge takes seven hours 30 minutes.

The top-spec Range Rover Sport SVR is powered by the Jaguar F-type SVR's 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine that develops 575hp (a bump of 25hp over the outgoing model) and 700Nm of peak torque. And to keeps all other screens alive as well, the sportiest Range Rover can be ordered with up to 12 power outlets.
