New HST version mixes 394 bhp and improved economy. but everything's relative.

. This power is stored in a 48V battery and can then be used to improve the engine's efficiency when it is under load, such as when pulling away from traffic lights.

Range Rover has announced the addition of a special version of the Range Rover Sport. This second wave of engines, with a Mild Hybrid 48V system and performance-boosting technologies, is engineered to be cleaner and more efficient than ever before.

But electricity isn't just used to reduce the amount of fuel used - it's also there to make the vehicle faster and more responsive.

The smooth and responsive engine has an innovative combination of advanced features, including the introduction of an electric supercharger to deliver immediate power response.

In total, the system produces 394 bhp, allowing the big 4x4 to sprint from 0-60 miles per hour in less than six seconds and hit a top speed of 140 miles per hour.

The clever system is based around an all-new Start-Stop system that switches off when stationary and pairs the latest 3.0-litre engine with an electric motor. Throwing a 48-volt mild hybrid in there, too, that's what.

In the United Kingdom, the Range Rover Sport HST is priced a few thousand pounds under the Autobiography Dynamic trim.

Range Rover has revealed a new variant of the Sport in the United Kingdom, headlined by the introduction of the company's new Ingenium inline six announced earlier today. You also benefit from 16-way electrically adjustable Dynamic seats, plus red brake callipers and chrome gear shift paddles.
