On Thursday, Land Rover confirmed price and range estimates for the 2023 Range Rover P440e plug-in hybrid model.
The automaker estimates an electric range of 48 miles, but notes that that is pending final EPA certification. Land Rover previously said that the P440e will have a 38.2 kWh battery with a capacity of 31.8 kWh. It will also have 50 kw DC fast charging, according to Land Rover — making it the only plug-in hybrid in the US market other than Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to include feature.
Prices start at $106,250 (including the required $1,350 destination fee) and are currently available to order in the United States. The plug-in hybrid will be one of two versions of the new Range Rover at launch, the other being the flagship SV with a twin-turbo V-8 engine. A mild six-cylinder hybrid powertrain will also be available.

Land Rover also plans to launch an all-electric Range Rover variant – its first production EV – in 2024. The automaker claims it will be the first of many. All-electric vehicle coming soon.
Land Rover has taken a broad road towards electrification. It was originally intended to provide a family plug-in hybrid engine under the Range Rover banner.

While ostensibly committed to battery-powered vehicles, Land Rover has said it could focus on fuel cells plus batteries in large SUVs to counter “diminishing profits“of the giant battery pack.
It also promotes more usage carbon fiber and composites to keep weight under control and increase EV range. Land Rover and its brother brand Jaguar in 2021 have launched a project to use these materials to reduce body weight while improving the rigidity of the overall structure. Jaguar and Land Rover previously said the first test cars would be ready this year.
