    The Range Rover Sport has been on sale in India for about one and half years now, but until now, it was only available with 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol and diesel mild-hybrid engine options. Now, Land Rover has listed prices of the Range Rover Sport with the flagship V8 engine as well as the 3.0-litre plug-in hybrid petrol on its India website. Dealers say that deliveries of these two variants are expected to take between 6-8 months.

    1. Flagship Range Rover Sport gets 635hp, 4.4-litre V8 engine
    2. Plug-in hybrid gets a claimed EV-only range of 123km
    3. Deliveries to take 6-8 months

    Here’s a look at the detailed price of the new V8 and PHEV variants of the Range Rover Sport:

    Range Rover Sport prices (ex-showroom)
    Range Rover Sport 4.4 Dynamic HSERs 2.01 crore
    Range Rover Sport 4.4 AutobiographyRs 2.12 crore
    Range Rover Sport 4.4 SV Edition OneRs 2.80 crore
    Range Rover Sport PHEV AutobiographyRs 2.11 crore

    Range Rover Sport V8

    Pushing out 635hp and 800Nm from a 4.4-litre, twin-turbocharged BMW-sourced V8 engine, this is the most powerful Range Rover yet. It gets an 8-speed automatic that drives all four wheels, which helps it do the 0-100kph sprint in 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 290kph. 

    There are subtle design changes over the regular Sport model, which includes wider front and rear tracks, increased camber, a new front bumper and grille treatment, side skirts and a rear bumper with dual twin exhausts. The new front treatment is partly necessitated by the increased cooling requirements of the V8 engine and the brakes.

    Inside, the V8-powered models gets new seats with integrated head restraints, and a new design for the steering wheel – a smaller, thicker rim with clearly moulded hand positions. It also incorporates an SV button to activate the personalised drive mode. The integrated head restraints make it onto the two rear chairs too, and barring these changes, the interior architecture largely continues unchanged.

    The other addition is the plug-in hybrid variant that's powered by a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder engine that’s coupled with a 38.2kWh battery pack. Total system output stands at 460hp and 660Nm of torque, which helps it do the 0-100kph sprint in 5.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 225kph. The battery pack takes five hours to fully charge using a 7kW AC charger, and it returns an electric-only range of 123km (WLTP cycle). This powertrain also comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, sending power to all four wheels.

    The plug-in hybrid powertrain is only available in top-spec Autobiography trim, but while it doesn’t get any exterior or interior cosmetic updates, it comes fully loaded with all the bells and whistles. These include digital LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, 22-inch alloy wheels, ambient lighting, four-zone climate control, illuminated scuff plates, 22-way powered front seats with ventilation and massage, head-up display, 360-degree camera and much more.

    The Range Rover Sport SV joins the likes of other super SUVs in the country such as the Lamborghini Urus, Audi RS Q8 and Aston Martin DBX. The PHEV, meanwhile, does not have any direct rival in India.
