The Range Rover Sport P440e takes all the best features of the standard Range Rover Sport and adds advanced hybrid technology for improved performance and fuel economy. At its heart, there’s an all-aluminium body with a steeply raked windshield designed to give drivers better visibility for off-roading or driving on rough terrain. The interior features high quality leather and wood trim with plenty of space for five passengers plus luggage in the rear compartment or trunk area (depending on which variant you choose).

The engines feature stop/start technology that turns off the engine when idling or at low speeds to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy as well as Active Dynamics Response (ADR), which helps balance out weight on uneven terrain for more comfortable driving characteristics over rough terrain such as steep hills, gravel roads or mud bogs
