Land Rover has unveiled a new updated Range Rover Sport SVR and also a new plug-in hybrid option for their SUV. Combined output is rated at an impressive 297kW, with 0-100km/h coming up in just 6.7 seconds.

The carmaker claims that two hours and 45 minutes is enough to charge it to the brim thanks to a special home wall box, but a standard charge takes seven hours 30 minutes.

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

Moving on to the Range Rover Sport SVR, it gets an increase in power to 567bhp by using the same state of tune for its 5.0 litre supercharged V8 as the F-Type SVR, which cuts its 0-62mph to 4.5 seconds and comes with more carbon fibre content than before too.

The 2018 Range Rover Sport is getting several updates for the 2018 model year, including updated styling, a new infotainment system and more power for the SVR model. In normal use, the auto operates in Parallel Hybrid mode, blending the petrol engine and electric motor to deliver the most frugal and fluent progress. By comparison, the V6 diesel Range Rover Sport, the predicted biggest seller, emits 185g/km and delivers 40.4mpg.

That hasn't stopped this rendering artist from imagining how a luxury Land Rover sedan could look when the Road Rover range expands in the future.

The Land Rover Range Rover Sport stands out for dynamic qualities, no-nonsense design and British charm. The driver can choose between the save function, which prevents the battery charge dropping below a selected level, and predictive energy optimization, which uses navigation data to choose when to switch between electric and gas power.

And if the hybrid isn't for you, a new 296bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine has joined the Range Rover Sport line-up.

"The addition of design-enabled technologies, such as our new infotainment system and the LED headlights demonstrate our drive towards ever greater desirability for the customer".

The Sport also gets the Velar's steering wheel, together with its touch-sensitive buttons; and while the Sport keeps its stubby gear selector, making do without the rotary dial fitted to the latest Jaguar-Land Rover cars, this is one of the few aspects of the Sport's interior that's been left unchanged.
