Malaysians waiting patiently for news of the P400e

Meet the Range Rover many Malaysians have been waiting for. The P400e. It’s Land Rover’s first plug-in hybrid system and it mates a 296bhp petrol engine with a 114bhp electric motor and battery pack. The new 1997cc inline four-cylinder “Ingenium” petrol engine is shared with the rest of the JLR family.

It has an average fuel economy of 101mpg and CO2 emissions of 64g/km, comfortably making it the most economical model in the range on paper. It can also run on electric power only for up to 31 miles, a full recharge of the battery taking 2hr 45min with a fast charger.

Power is sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission, allowing for a 0-60mph run of 6.4sec (6.8sec to 62mph) and a 137mph top speed which is very close to the performance of the V8 powered Range Rover. All that is needed now is for Jaguar Land Rover UK and Sime Darby to work out a local assembly deal and have this P400e assembled in the Inokom assembly plant in Kulim where BMW, MINI, Hyundai and Mazda are assembling their vehicles.
