Jaguar Land Rover has launched their first vehicle with a mild-hybrid powertrain and it’s an iteration of the Range Rover Sport dubbed the Range Rover Sport HST.

The Range Rover Sport HST replaces the regular V6 petrol motor for an all-new 3.0-litre inline-six cylinder petrol engine with the addition of an electric supercharger and a twin-scroll turbocharger. The powertrain is good enough for 395 HP of peak power and 550 Nm of torque. This allows the Range Rover HST to cover the 0-100 km/hr run in under 6 seconds and achieve a top speed of 225 km/hr.

JLR stated that the electric supercharger is driven directly by an electric motor that can rev up to 1,20,000 RPM in half a second. This helps in virtually eliminating all the lag from the turbocharger. The new engine also reduces CO2 emissions over the petrol V6 by 12 percent while cutting down on particulate emissions by 75 percent. The SUV also gets Continuous Variable Valve Lift (CVVL), a system that varies inlet valve timing and lift profile to improve efficiency in addition to the electric supercharger and efficient turbocharger. There is also a 48-volt system that can harvest energy on the move, provide torque assistance to the engine, and trigger the Start-Stop system. Range Rover claims a fuel economy of 12.96 km/l and CO2 emissions of 213g/km.

“In-line six-cylinder engines are inherently better balanced than V6 designs and our all-new Ingenium unit builds on that promise to optimize efficiency in all operating conditions. Advanced features, including an electric supercharger, ensure distinctive Range Rover Sport performance and responses, while the intelligent MHEV system harvests energy to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions,” Jaguar Land Rover executive director of product engineering Nick Rogers said.

Design changes for the Range Rover Sport HST include a unique badging and carbon fiber trim across the exterior. For the interior, Land Rover has equipped the vehicle with 16-way Dynamic front seats with red and black leather and satin chrome shift paddles. The SUV also gets Advanced Cruise Control, High Speed Emergency Braking and Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2.

While JLR hasn’t revealed the markets where the Range Rover Sport HST will be available, customers in UK can buy one for themselves at £81,250.
