Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover managing director, said: "The current Range Rover Sport has performed exceptionally well in the United Kingdom market since it was introduced in 2013 selling just shy of 50,000 vehicles to date".

Its electrified powertrain means the Range Rover Sport P400e boasts a claimed fuel consumption figure of 101mpg on the NEDC combined cycle, and Carbon dioxide emissions of 64g/km.

The updated Rangie Sport range isn't only about being green, however; a new SVR variant ups power to 423kW with a brisk 0-100km/h time of 4.5 seconds.

The 13.1kWh lithium-ion battery takes two hours and 45 minutes to fill from empty with a rapid charger, which the company says can be installed at home, or seven hours and 30 minutes via a regular public charger.

The petrol-electric combination also produces plenty of pulling power - 640Nm of torque - boosting the plug-in hybrid's off-road abilities. Expect pricing for the Range Rover Sport P400e to be announced closer to its launch.

Land Rover has revealed a heavily updated Range Rover Sport with design changes, new powertrains and an interior overhaul to challenge rivals, including the new Porsche Cayenne.

Land Rover achieved its best ever September, up 14%, to 6,407 cars, with strong sales across the Range Rover family.

The plug-in hybrid Range Rover Sport won't arrive until summer 2018 however, as a 2019 model year. When working in unison the vehicle is capable of hitting 100km/h in 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 137mph.

Going on sale in early 2018, the refreshed range will also include a flagship SVR performance model, boasting a V8 engine, plus the usual range of petrol and diesel powertrains, including four-cylinder and V6 options. There is an updated infotainment system with two 10-inch touchscreens, redesigned LED headlights and a new gesture-controlled sunblind, which can be opened with by waving a hand in the right way rather than with a switch.

Drivers can choose from two different modes - parallel hybrid and all-electric - with the latter offering 31 miles of electric range.

The nipped and tucked Range Rover Sports are available to order now, with the line-up starting at £61,315 for the 2.0-litre "SD4" diesel, rising to £99,680 for the SVR.
