One of the best luxury cars money can buy: this really is a bit of an all-round superstar- Top Gear

Now in its plug-in hybrid guise, the 2021 Range Rover PHEV still holds the image of an ultimate luxury SUV. It is just as comfortable around royalty as it is on a red carpet. Yet, it has the off-road ability of a tractor and this one has a better fuel economy too. Its interior is crowded with high-end materials that shout for extreme luxury. While being spacious, its cabin is also technologically advanced. This also means that the SUV packs an extensive list of safety technologies

When it comes to leasing, Land Rover does not offer any lease deals for their 2021 Range Rover PHEV. However, it is offering a 0.9% APR rate for those who want to buy the SUV through a finance option. The finance duration is up to 36 months. Looking at the ownership costs of the 2021 Range Rover PHEV, you may get second thoughts about buying one. It costs around $20,400 annually for its repairs, maintenance, fuel, etc. On average, it can run for 6.25 miles for every dollar you spend.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover plug-in hybrid SUV Buying Advice

We recommend going for the base HSE P400e trim if you wish to buy the Range Rover PHEV as this trim packs enough comfort and technological features for a luxury lifestyle. Compared to the regular Range Rover, the PHEV model adds 20-inch wheels, a 19-speaker Meridian premium sound system,  heated rear seats and steering wheel, and power soft-close doors. The model also adds few safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, driver drowsiness monitor, and road sign recognition. We also advise equipping the $1,970 Drive Pro package that adds more driver aids for a safer ride.

The hybridized Range Rover offers energetic and potent performance- Carbuzz

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV gets an advanced hybrid system that incorporates a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and a 13.1 kWh battery. The engine makes 296 hp and 295 lb-ft. of torque and when combined with a 141-hp electric motor, the combined output is 398 hp and 472 lb-ft. of torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission is used to drive that power to all four wheels as the 4WD system is standard. Despite the car weighs more than 5,000 lbs, the engine does deliver enough power to keep it going. 

2021 Range Rover PHEV engine

Handling isn't one of the Range Rover's forte. When you turn into a corner, the whole thing lollops from side to side. Even when you put it into a dynamic mode which stiffens the air suspension up, it still doesn't excite you to throw this car around corners. The ride quality is lovely, the air suspension does a fantastic job. The only thing that sort of ruffles the whole refinement of the car is the wheels. The 20-inch wheels maintain the ride quality while the larger 21-inch makes you realize potholes. Responsive steering allows maneuvering the SUV easily. 

2021 Range Rover PHEV accelerates 0-60 MPH just in 6.5 sec

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV is not breathtaking when it comes to performance. It has the potential to sprint from 0-60 MPH in 6.5 seconds while the quarter-mile run is finished in 15.3 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 137 MPH. However, the Range Rover PHEV does a great job in the braking field. It has ventilated disc brakes that have rotors measuring 15 inches in front and 14.4 inches at the back. These brakes take 97 feet to come to rest from 60-0 MPH. The regenerative braking system saves the energy to recharge the battery.

Undoubtedly, the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid is the fastest cruiser in this competition owing to its powerful engine. The light-weighted VolvoXC90 Recharge takes second place on the table with decent performance numbers but falls short on tow ratings. Meanwhile, the pricey Range Rover PHEV is pushed to the last place.

Even more efficient is the Ranger Rover plug-in hybrid- Autotrader

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV comes with a Parallel Hybrid mode where fuel economy is optimized by combining electric power and gas. With this mode in use, the Range Rover PHEV returns a combined mileage of 42 MPGe. In gas form, the SUV manages about 21 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highway, and 19 MPG combined. Comparatively, its fuel efficiency is not the best in its class. 

Land Rover claims that the Range Rover PHEV has an all-electric range of 19 miles owing to its 13.1 kWh battery capacity. It takes about 14 hours to recharge the battery from a standard wall plug and about 3 hours with a Level 2 charger. The SUV is fitted with a 23.8-gallon fuel tank, which is probably the largest among its rivals. According to EPA, the 2021 Range Rover PHEV delivers 480 miles of mixed range.

Next in line is the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid with 46 MPGe combined. However, the large fuel tank of the Range Rover PHEV benefits with a better range than Porsche.

On appearances alone, the Range Rover's cabin gets high marks for its blend of classic luxury and modern technology- Edmunds

The interior of the 2021 Range Rover PHEV greets you with a sophisticated and opulent cabin filled with premium materials such as leather, real wood, and aluminum. This five-seater gets semi-aniline leather upholstery as standard. The front seats are really supportive comfortable and are well-padded. They get dozens of power adjustability with standard heated functions while ventilated, cooled and massage functions are optional. The leather steering wheel is also power-adjustable and gets a heating function as standard. 

2021 Range Rover PHEV dashboard

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV does actually make for a quite good family SUV as there are tons and tons of space in both rows. Three adults can easily fit inside without feeling claustrophobic. The middle-seat comfort is good as there's a flat floor.  However, the long-wheelbase versions are not available for the plug-in hybrid models but that's necessary. The 2021 Range Rover PHEV has a trunk capacity of 28.3 cu-ft. and this expands to 65.1 cu-ft. of cargo space which is better than its adversaries. It can hold 13 carry-on cases which is suitable for five-membered families.

The Volvo XC90 Recharge offers slightly more legroom in the front row but lacks rear-seat space and cargo volume. The low height of the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid cuts of the headroom, which can be challenging for six-footers. The 2021 Range Rover PHEV has a lot of tech for entertainment. This includes 10-inch Touch Pro Duo touchscreens. Once you switch the ignition, the upper screen slightly tilts forward for better visibility. Besides this, Land Rover also provides an option for a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 10-inch screens. 

2021 Range Rover PHEV infotainment system

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV also gets a head-up display that shows the vehicle status in a way that never diverts you from the view of the road. Standard connectivity features include Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, etc. A 19-speaker Meridian premium audio system is a primary source for sound duties. The upper touchscreen performs all the infotainment duties. It is a little bit laggy but does seem to work and look very nice. The lower screen manages the temperature of the cabin, seats, etc. The highlights of the Range Rover's cabin are:

  • Dual 10-inch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • 19-speaker Meridian premium audio system
  • 12.3-inch multi-function display
  • 20-way power-adjustable front leather heated seats
  • Power tilt & telescopic multi-function leather steering wheel with head function
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Hands-free power split tailgate

The LED headlights and daytime running lights give the vehicle a distinctive signature- Kelly Blue Book

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV can be identified easily with its boxy look. Upfront, the mesh pattern grille gets a chrome finish and behind it, you will find the hidden charging socket.  That's got to be the most elegantly hidden charging socket. The LED DRLs are sharper while the top-end model gets the pixel laser lamps that are capable of lighting up the road up to 1,640 feet. The Range Rover PHEV has a ground clearance of 8.7 inches, which is pretty good. However, the adaptive air suspension increases it to 11.7 inches so that it does not impact the SUV's off-road ability. 

From the side view, the floating roof is one of the reasons for its fine-looking silhouette. Under the wheel arches, you get 20, 21, and 22-inch alloy wheels, depending on the model and you also get beautiful wheel designs.  Its 115-inch wheelbase clearly explains its spacious interior. The styling at the back is elegant just as you'd expect from Range Rover. On the lower fascia, the dual integrated exhausts are tucked right under the bumper. The SUV also gets a split tailgate that can be seen on other Range Rover models too. Overall, the 2021 Range Rover PHEV hits the mark for a beautifully designed luxury SUV

The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid is the shortest SUV here with just 66.8 inches while its overall length is nearly 3 inches less than the Range Rover. The less height can affect the headroom for tall passengers. Some cool exterior highlights of the Range Rover PHEV are:

8.0/10

Land Rover offers much of today's most sought after driver-assistance technology but advanced features- CarAndDriver

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV is rated neither by the NHTSA nor by the IIHS, which is usually common for such high-end luxury vehicles. This does not imply that the SUV is not safe. The Range Rover PHEV does offer a lot of safety features to shield the passengers and the vehicle. For starters, a suite of six airbags is provided that stretches to the rear row as well. 

A decent list of driver assistance features is offered in the 2021 Range Rover PHEV.  Apart from this, Land Rover also offers an optional $4,000 Driver Assist package that includes the best active driver aids to prevent the risk of an accident. Another $1,970 Driver Pro package adds limited but essential safety features to the vehicle. All the standard and optional safety features are mentioned below:

  • Automatic High-Beam Headlights
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Hands-free Park Assist
  • Road Sign Recognition
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Rearview Camera
  • 360-degree Bird's Eye Camera
  • Front & Rear Parking Sensors

2021 Range Rover PHEV vs 2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge

One of the main differences is its price. The Volvo XC90 Recharge has a much less initial price than the Range Rover PHEV. The engine in the XC90 Recharge showcases better performance numbers due to its low curb weight and is also a fuel-efficient engine. However, it is down by almost 500 lbs in terms of towing capacity. On the inside, the XC90's rear row doesn't provide enough space as the Range Rover but it boasts a mind-blowing cargo capacity of 85.7 cu-ft. Moreover, it has garnered the 'IIHS Top Safety Pick+' award, which makes it the safest option in this segment.

2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge

2021 Range Rover PHEV vs 2021 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid

The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid is around $15,000 cheaper than the Range Rover PHEV and also packs 57 horses more than it. This leads to incredible performance stats in both tests and also about 2,200 lbs of towing capacity more than the Range Rover. The Cayenne also returns better MPGe figures but the latter's large fuel tank translates to more driving range. The interior of both SUVs are equally luxurious and spacious but the Cayenne fails to offer enough cargo space. In terms of safety, the Cayenne does not offer more standard safety features like Range Rover.

2021 Land Rover Range Rover plug-in hybrid SUV Final Verdict

9.0/10

The 2021 Range Rover PHEV has attention-grabbing interiors with a lot of technology and safety amenities that are semi-autonomous. However, the fuel efficiency is on the lower side. If you have ever wished for a Range Rover PHEV, we suggest you get one. That's because the competitors lack the road presence and opulence a Range Rover offers.
