All New 2019 RANGE ROVER P400E Plug-In Hybrid

Although Land Rover’s flagship Range Rover and rakish Range Rover Sport have been given a mild yet thoughtfully executed makeover for the 2018 model year, the big news is under the skin. For the 2019 model year, both will be available with Land Rover’s first plug-in hybrid powertrain, and our first drive of the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover P400e suggests it’s worth the wait.

 

The 2018 Range Rover and 2018 Range Rover Sport get exterior upgrades that include new headlights, grilles, and front bumpers. Both have new seats inside, and both get a version of the high-tech dual-screen center stack that made its debut in the Range Rover Velar.

The first thing you notice about the new Range Rover plug-in hybrid is … nothing at all. There’s no additional flap in the bodywork for a charge port and not a single hybrid badge anywhere on the car. The charge port is hidden behind a cleverly disguised flap on the left-hand side of the grille. A tiny “P400e” badge under the HSE model designation is the only visible clue to the first hybrid powertrain in Land Rover’s 70-year history.

Land Rover’s PHEV powertrain is composed of a 296-hp version of JLR’s 2.0-liter turbo-four gas engine and a 114-hp  electric motor fed by a 13.1-kW-hr lithium-ion battery mounted under the rear loadspace floor. Total system output is 398 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. Land Rover claims a pure electric range of up to 31 miles, along with a 0–60-mph time of 6.3 seconds. And because the electric motor is mounted within the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the pure electric drive is even available for low-range off-roading.

 

The Range Rover P400e has a 7-kW onboard charger that, when connected via the standard 10-amp home charging cable, will fully recharge the battery in 7.5 hours, according to Land Rover. An optional 32-amp wall box and multifunction cable, available from Land Rover dealers, will reduce charge time to just under three hours. Illuminated strips either side of the charge port allow a quick visual check of the battery’s charge status, but owners can also monitor remotely it via an app on their phones.

Drivers can leave the hybrid powertrain to shuffle between electric and internal combustion power to meet load demands, or they can actively manage the battery’s state of charge. When a destination is entered into the nav system, the P400e’s electronic neural network factors in traffic conditions, the gradient of the route, and whether it’s operating in a rural or urban environment to deliver the most efficient combination of power modes. Alternatively, selecting Save mode via the central touchscreen ensures the battery will always have enough charge to allow the P400e to operate in pure EV mode for a specific segment of their journey.

Sounds good in theory, but how does it work in practice? Surprisingly well, as it happens.

The PHEV powertrain is well suited to the relaxed demeanor of Range Rover. In pure EV mode—which it will maintain up to 85 mph—it delivers almost Rolls-Royce levels of waftability around town. In hybrid mode, you can hear the engine fire up if you listen for it, but in reality, the transitions between the electric motor and the internal combustion engine are impressively smooth and seamless. The e-motor’s instant-on torque—203 lb-ft at zero rpm—effortlessly gets the 5,448-pound Range Rover off the line and adroitly shoulders the load to help out the engine once the big SUV is underway.

The PHEV powertrain is the best application yet of JLR’s gas turbo-four, an engine not especially noted for smoothness and silence in other Jaguar and Land Rover models. If they’re really concentrating, occupants might detect a little vibration when the engine fires up, and full throttle will deliver a distant, muted growl. But most would be hard-pressed to tell you what sort of engine is actually under the hood. What’s more, when left to its own devices, the little four-banger punches above its weight, coping surprisingly well with the Range Rover’s mass.

Although it’s a hybrid, it still has a Sport mode, which engages the electric motor all the time to help deliver maximum performance and allows full manual control of the eight-speed automatic via paddles mounted on the steering wheel. No matter which way you drive it, however, the P400e feels quicker, more responsive, and more refined on the road than the V-6-powered gas or diesel Range Rovers.

Off-road, the EV mode, selected via a button on the center console, works brilliantly, especially in low range. Land Rover has recalibrated its acclaimed Terrain Response system to work with the electric motor, and that instant torque means you can be extremely precise with the throttle, carefully tip-toeing the big Rangie over major obstacles.

Even a klutz can take this hybrid luxury limo places few other SUVs dare go. The air suspension can be jacked up a maximum of 3.0 inches, it’ll safely wade through 35.4 inches of water like every other Range Rover, and with JLR’s Low Traction Launch software now on board, it will effortlessly pull away from a standstill on slippery surfaces such as wet grass, loose gravel, and snow.

In Europe the PHEV powertrain is available across the Range Rover lineup, including long-wheelbase models. For U.S. buyers, however, it comes only in the standard-wheelbase Range Rover and in HSE trim. (A PHEV version of the Range Rover Sport HSE will also available in the U.S. in 2019.) Pricing is competitive: At $96,145, the P400e is an attractive alternative to the regular six-cylinder $95,045 HSE or the $97,045 HSE diesel models. Overall drivability is better, particularly in terms of a perceived luxury feel, with the added benefits of decent fuel economy and smooth, silent, zero-emissions motoring in city centers.

On top of all that, you get a bunch of worthwhile upgrades that come with the Range Rover’s 2018 model year refresh, from the subtle exterior tweaks to an interior that looks noticeably more upscale and lavishly equipped. Luxury SUVs might be everywhere these days, but the supremely elegant and capable Range Rover remains the segment benchmark.

Professional Car Concierges Make Car Buying Easy,

Paul Maloney.

President of Car Leasing Concierge

Jeffry Melnick didn’t want the hassle and anxiety of shopping for a car when he set out to buy one last year.

“When they say to me, ‘Do you want to look under the hood?’ No,” Mr. Melnick said. “No, I don’t.”

So he hired someone to do his haggling for him.

Mr. Melnick, a semiretired theatrical agent who lives in Palm Springs, Calif., called Authority Auto, a car-buying service based in Tarzana, and told it what he wanted — and what he wanted to pay..

  • But finding a negotiator can be tricky. There is no standard name for these services — some call themselves a buying service, others a negotiating service, some a broker, still others a concierge. Each seems to operate in its own way.

  • Paul Maloney is a New York-based former fleet director with an Australian accent and a snappy line of patter. He calls his business the Car Leasing Concierge, www.carleasingconcierge.com although he handles new-car sales as well. He sends clients to a dealership with a free worksheet, then, for a fee, he will assess the deal to see if he can beat it. His is a tiered service that tops out with his assessing your deal and handling your purchase for $297.

Oren Weintraub, a former car salesman, owns Authority Auto. The services say they can protect consumers and save them time and money. 

Mr. Weintraub, a former car salesman, said he worked with buyers from start to finish. He will help them choose a car and negotiate the sales price, finance rate, and aftermarket products like service contracts and wheel and paint protection. He works nationwide and charges $600 to $1,500, depending on the cost of the car. For an additional $300 he will also sell the client’s old car.

Greg Macke, who calls himself “Your Car Angel,” helps clients pick a car, arranges a test drive, negotiates the purchase and accompanies the buyer to a dealership. He even inspects used cars. But he accepts only clients who live near Los Angeles for his $750 service.

You might think dealerships tremble at their approach, but the negotiators — who said they helped with between 125 and 1,000 purchases a year — say that is not the case.

“We buy so much merchandise from them that we are an asset to them,” said Greg Pence, manager of car-buying services for AAA Carolinas, whose in-house service buys about 1,200 cars a year. He said dealerships liked that the professional negotiators closed deals quickly, “usually within a good 30 minutes or so.”

The negotiators compete with services like TrueCar, which don’t charge the consumer but do charge the dealers — who may pass the cost on to the consumer.

Michael S. Freeman II, the executive manager of Sunset Chevrolet Buick GMC in Sarasota, Fla., said the average profit on a car was 2 percent. On a $30,000 car that would be $600. TrueCar, he said, charges a fee of $300 for each new car sold on a referral.

“When we get someone from TrueCar, we have to cut a check,” Mr. Freeman said. “That is factored into the price.”s

TrueCar is the technology behind 500 buying services, like those of publications like Car & Driver and U.S. News and World Report, and companies like USAA and Sam’s Club. The dealers get their referrals from TrueCar, which displays prices from its member dealerships and allows prospective buyers to compare the out-the-door cost for the vehicle they want. That eliminates haggling — for better or worse.

The details of how a dealer reaches the price that TrueCar displays are complex, said Veronica Cardenas, a spokeswoman for TrueCar, but “it’s not a race to the bottom.” She added, “The idea is you are getting a competitive price.”

There are competitors that charge dealerships a modest monthly fee, such as Costco and CarGurus, which dealers said gave them more room to discount. (Sometimes, getting the very best deal comes from buying at just the right time. Dealers receive bonuses based on sale quotas, meaning they might give bigger discounts if they’re trying to hit a benchmark.
