New £81k Range Rover Sport HST gets mild-hybrid power

Range Rover Sport HST revealed for the UK

Jaguar Land Rover expands Ingenium engine family with straight six-cylinder gasoline engine; MHEV 48V system; 20% more fuel efficient than outgoing V6

The supercharger can spool up to 120,000 rpm in half a second, which Land Rover says eliminates turbo lag.

According to the Whitley-based firm, the new engine (which uses a twin-scroll turbocharger) is "more responsive and better balanced" than the outgoing V6, offering 294 kW and 550 N.m of torque (send to all four wheels via an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission). The efficiencies and mild electrification help improve fuel economy over the previous supercharged V-6 engine by about 20 percent.

This allows the system to harvest energy through regenerative braking and store it in a 48V battery for later use, such as when pulling away from a standing start.

These performance-boosting technologies work alongside a new Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain that is underpinned by the new engine, bringing enhanced efficiency to the range with fuel economy of 9.3 litre/100km.
