The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover PHEV is all set to enter the American market later this year with an expected price tag of $98,000. This luxury SUV may very likely come with more upgraded luxury features and looking at the current market sentiments we can also expect a full plug-in model this year. Jaguar (parent company) is also planning to change its platform with its own MLB platform with better aerodynamics and rigidity. The closest rivals of this luxury SUV would be the 2021 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid, 2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge PHEV T8 Inscription, and the 2021 BMW X5 xDrive45e.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The all-new 2022 Land Rover Range Rover PHEV will integrate various exciting features in its luxury SUV this year. Although the features are not confirmed by the carmaker yet for this year we will likely see a complete plug-in model. Other than that, if we believe the rumors we will also get to see a V8 engine debut this year in the base model. It will also be available with a longer wheelbase version and loads of convenience as well as infotainment features are very likely to join the list.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover plug-in hybrid SUV Features

The 2022 Land Rover Range Rover PHEV is available in two distinct trims with their features and prices differentiating them drastically. The HSE is the base trim which is by no means basic and comes with a truckload of features and creature comforts. The Autobiography adds more to the list even more in all ways making it an epitome of luxury.

The following table shows the expected prices of each trim and the features they come equipped with.

The HSE trim would be sufficient for anyone but when it comes to models that are this expensive, it is a matter of individual choice. The Autobiography trim comes with a truckload of extra features and luxury features at a much higher price as seen in the table above. However, the powertrain remains the same and the choice is entirely subjective.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover plug-in hybrid SUV Engine and Performance

Under the hood, the 2022 Range Rover PHEV houses a 2.0L hybrid inline-4 engine that is capable of making 398 HP and 472 lb-ft of torque. Furthermore, its powertrain gets coupled with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and an AWD system comes as standard in all the models. For this year, we are expecting this model to get a new V8 engine along with two electric motors on both the axles of this car which will be a great step ahead with a lot more power and torque on offer.

Although the numbers may look a bit sluggish in front of its competitors, the overall performance of this car will remain to be great. In terms of acceleration, it lacks behind its three-row-seater SUVs by a little when it comes to a quick sprint right from the bottom. But, after a certain period, it becomes quite faster in the quarter-mile race. Overall the PHEV from Range Rover is powerful enough and performs pretty well in the segment.

The Range Rover PHEV in terms of performance specs seems a little behind its closest competitors. The 2022 official specs are not available yet but a V8 engine is very likely to debut this year in the PHEV model which may enhance the numbers by a huge margin. But here the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid has the most powerful engine and it can do quick sprints in a very short time.

How does the 2022 Land Rover Range Rover PHEV handle?

The ride and handling of the Land Rover Range Rover are still unmatched in its class because of its great balance and seamless response even on highly bumpy roads. Range Rover’s are known for their supreme performance on city conditions and off-road as well. On a Range Rover, cruising at rough city conditions and off-roading becomes super fun because of its quick stimulus and stability. An AWD system will also remain as standard in all the models that will provide good traction while cruising at sharp turns.

However, there are some serious issues regarding this PHEV from the Range Rover lineup. Compared to conventional models of Range Rover, the PHEV is a slight disappointment as it stutters to deliver power at the right moments and lags a bit occasionally. The suspension setups were also found to be a bit on the softer side in the 2021 model, affecting stability and corner-carving abilities. This might be fixed in the 2022 version and a new powertrain may also be introduced.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover plug-in hybrid SUV Fuel Economy

The 2022 Range Rover doesn’t deliver much impressive mpg figures from a PHEV as expected. The Range Rover PHEV comes with a 13.1 kWh battery pack delivering an all-electric range of 19-miles with the ability to travel up to speeds of 85mph. The gas mileage of the PHEV is a combined 19mpg. The combined range is around 456 miles which is pretty good as it has a higher capacity fuel tank.

The fuel MPG figures are not in favor of the Range Rover PHEV as it gives the lowest range amongst all the other competitors. The Range Rover, however, does have the biggest fuel tank in its class so that the range is not affected by the low mpg figures. The Volvo is the most fuel-efficient in the competition and none of the competitors reaches anywhere near it.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover plug-in hybrid SUV Interior

Land Rover highly believes in dressing it's cabin with lavish materials and precise engineering coupled with various luxury features. Its cabin remains to be a dream place for any car enthusiast to be in at least for once. It also provides you with multiple optional plush features that you can add to the list by paying a little extra which we will discuss later on. Firstly, it has a wide cabin dimension inside and has one of the biggest rear legroom in its class. The standard cargo space also remains to be dominating in its segment but we have to agree to the fact that this car only has two rows. 

The cabin looks astonishing with its dual-color tone along with wooden finishes on the edges along with a well-designed dash area. The seats, steering wheel, shift-knob, and dash are bolstered in luxury quality leather material. The front seat support system is superb which comes in a 20-way power-adjustable option in the HSE trim. It becomes 24-way adjustable with massage function in the higher Autobiography trim. The Autobiography trim also gets executive class power recline heated and cooled rear seats along with four-zone automatic climate control which is to-zone in the HSE trim.

2022 Land Rover Range Rover plug-in hybrid SUV Exterior

 To date, there has been some buzz about its refreshed exterior but the spy shots of this model year don’t hint us at any major changes. The exterior part is expected to have the same characteristics as its predecessor but Land Rover may surprise us with some minor tweaks. Overall, the exterior looks sleepy and aesthetic, and it follows the luxury aura all around. The signature honeycomb grille will remain the same in size and no changes are expected this year.

The front honeycomb grille of this car has a dedicated compartment that acts as a gateway for charging the vehicle. The PHEV is equipped with 20-inch wheels in the HSE trim and larger 21-inch ones in the Autobiography trim.

Overall, it has good exterior dimensions but the Volvo XC90 here seems to be a little better comparatively with a longer wheelbase and ground clearance while maintaining the lowest weight. The Range however is the longest among the competition.
