    L405 p400e review

    Hi everyone. It's been 10 days since the dealer handed me my RR p400e and I was able to drive it 2000km. The new Range seems much better than the previous one, I have changed it for a RR tdv8.This model has an amazing technology. We can enjoy driving it but we can also enjoy with all the options that gives us.Everything can be set how you want or you need.It is very comfortable, the seats have improved a lot and are of high quality.The opening and closing of the doors and boot space is splendid and the exterior is beautiful. Mine is Corris Gray.
    As for his driving, I have to say that it is very silent. In EV mode we only hear the AVAS system so that pedestrians can hear us approach. The gasoline engine surprised me a lot because I thought that I would have to drive a lot more revolutionized than with the v8 and it is not true.It is a very agile engine but at the same time it is very smooth.The sound is more racing than the previous engines bigger but not at all the sound is annoying.I have discovered after the first kilometers that the best is driving smoothly in auto mode around the city and basically the electric mode works without the need to have the EV mode selected..The brain of the vehicle takes care of everything, I calculate that you can do about 50 or 60 km in this way. Obviously you can select the pure EV mode. You can start a long trip with the auto mode and the battery is running quite fast although it does it depending on the type of road where we are driving. The other day I drove 260 km by motorway and highway and when I reached the final destination I still had a little battery. The regeneration is fine but I do not think it regenerates much load.
    Consumption on a trip of 350 km per road and highway in SAVE mode has been 13.4 l / km. The touch of the brake is not a problem and the reduction of the size of the trunk is not either. I am very happy with my new RR

    Did you mean 13.4 km/l?

    Re: p400e review

    You p400e sounds like a lovely car. However 13.4litres/100k does not seem very good. I used to get 7litres/100k in my RRS SDV6 and am expecting 8L/100k in my yet to be delivered SDV8. By the way is your p400e an MY 19 model or MY18? Of interest here in Australia if we were caught doing 150kph we would lose our license for up to a year with a hefty fine. We are restricted to 100kph and sometimes 110kph here. It drives me mad!

    Re: p400e review

    is MY2019. That high consumption was without using the battery (mode save) and practically almost the whole trip by highway at 150km / h .. You do not have to worry because in auto mode the fuel consumption is about 8/10 liters x 100km and in city mode EV, 0 liters x 100 km,ja,ja,ja, the sad think about this is that you can only do about 30 km in pure Ev mode. In auto mode I would say that you can do 60 km with consumptions of 5/6 litersx100km

    That explains it then. Just goes to show that 150kph is much less economical than 100kph so I suppose thinly good thing about travelling the Australian speed limit is much better fuel consumption!

    Re: p400e review

    I have a MY18 P400e and I'm super happy with it. I've been tracking my overall mileage if anyone is interested. I mostly drive around town (daily work commute, around 15 miles) and from time to time I take longer trips on weekends.
    The best mileage I've seen at UK highway speeds (70mph) has been 43.46 mpg (imperial), ie 6.5l/100km.
    The combined data for roughly 1000 miles I've done:
    - 50.38 mpg efficiency (5.61 l/100km)
    - 78.46 mpg PHEV efficiency (3.60 l/100km)
    This is calculated over 32% EV mode and 68% combined mode.

    So far, I can say that the car makes a lot of sense if you do short trips in the city and you have a charger at home and/or at work. I'm basically paying almost nothing for my daily commute.
    When you have to do longer trips, the efficiency is a matter of how fast and far you drive. I've noticed that if I do the 70 mph (max legal speed in UK) I get around 6 to 7 l/100km, with a light load. Drive faster than that and you easily go into the 12-14 l/100km range. Heavier loads (4 people in car, full trunk) got me 11-12 l/100km.

    1. awesome data, thank you. FWIW a quick conversion from UK mpg to US, because I just looked:
    43.46 UK - 36.19 US
    50.38 UK - 41.95 US
    78.46 UK - 65.33 US
    The combined data is the truly impressive one.

    2. Seems like LR really pulled it off.
    3. Out of curiosity, lemonrazz, which part of the UK are you at? Will you see truly cold weather, like -10C or below? I'd love to see some real-world figures under those conditions.

    I have a MY2019 P400e.
    How did you collect this data?

    What is your guess about consumption if you used it in auto mode in autobahn between 100-120 kmh on a long trip like 200-250km ( battery will probably finish or regenerate?)

    Re: p400e review

    Last week I had a longer trip through Switzerland. They have a 120 km/h speed limit. There was some traffic around Zürich, so not optimal conditions. With empty battery, my consumption was 10,7 l/100 km.

    In automatic mode without navigation target, you can expect that the battery is empty after 100 km. With a navigation target, the RR will try to optimize the electricity usage for the trip. You can expect 8-10 l / 100 km.

    Re: p400e review

    How big of a fuel capacity difference is there between the p400e and the v8? We used to have a volvo plug in and it was great around the city but it would still annoy me on road trips because the fuel tank was so small. I am wondering if the range rover has the same issue.

    Re: p400e review

    You can expect about 400 miles. Today I have driven about 500 miles in Germany on highways, often with 130 mph. 300 miles are no problem, when you driver solver 400-450 miles should be feasible.
