The Range Rover diesel hybrid takes two bites out of the company car tax cake – emissions are lower of course, but there’s no diesel surcharge to pay either

LAND Rover is giving its posh Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models some company car tax-reducing new technology.

It comes in the form of diesel hybrid powertrains.

If you’ve always wanted a Range Rover as a company car, this could be your chance

Using the Range Rover’s standard SDV6 turbodiesel engine and adding a 35kW electric motor-generator, CO2 emissions drop to just 169g/km.

As there’s no 3% company car tax diesel surcharge on diesel hybrid models (see our business car news story Yeeha! HMRC says diesel hybrids are exempt from 3% company car tax surcharge) the Range Rover Hybrid and Range Rover Sport Hybrid have company car tax bands of 25%.

Meanwhile, fuel economy is now 44.1mpg. Power is 340PS and there’s a thumping 700Nm torque on offer. Acceleration to 62mph is under seven seconds. 

The new lower-tax Range Rover Hybrid and Range Rover Sport Hybrid can be ordered now for delivery at the beginning of 2014.
