The 2013 new Range Rover fleet will be now including the hybrid Range_e. The first vehicles to hit production will be the Range Rover Sport and the Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Vogue won't be too far in the distant future. All have the capability to be powered by the new Hybrid power train. Land Rover designers and engineers are designing both diesel and petrol hybrid. Land Rover has decided that Europe will be the first to get the diesel hybrid. If no problems develop from the diesel vehicles then the petrol hybrids will be easy to ease into the vehicle market.
