The Sport hybrid enjoys full-time four-wheel drive and can be driven either in hybrid mode, where the electric motors assists its petrol-powered colleague, or in full EV mode, where the vehicle runs exclusively on the energy that's been stored up in the battery. Details have leaked ahead of the official debut, and they're pretty great.

Inside, a redesigned cabin features slimmer seats, more storage space, and a new air ionization system.

Of course, if you just want to do fast things in a vehicle, you could save about 40 large and pick up an equally quick Porsche droptop - the new SVR stickers at $114,595. The Range Rover Sport PHEV has an official consumption of 31mpg and 64g/km Carbon dioxide thanks to its 31 miles of electric-only range that gets it through a good chunk of the European Union's NEDC fuel consumption and emissions test.

Order books for the latest Range Rover Sport are now open, with the first customer deliveries expected in early 2018. The 398 bhp total available power output, delivers 0-100kmph in only 6.7 seconds and a maximum speed of 220kmph.

Changes are very elementary, though, including new LED lights, bumper design and grille. Then, there's full EV mode, granting up to 31 miles of silent electric cruising.

Canadian police have detained a thirty-year-old man in connection with vehicular and stabbing attacks in the city of Edmonton. The officer was conscious when taken to hospital, Pattison said, but he did not specify the nature of his injuries.

At steady speeds the vehicle uses Global Positioning System to work out when best to switch between fully electric and hybrid driving modes; if a steep hill is approaching, the engine will fire up to take up the slack, then cut out going downhill.

Prices for the new Range Rover Sport line-up starts at £61,315 for the HSE model with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, while the P400e PHEV has a starting price of £70,800. We'll have to wait until the 2019 Los Angeles Motor Show to see what Land Rover has planned for the new Road Rover range. The battery can be fully charged in 7 hours 30 minutes using the 10-amp home charging cable supplied as standard.

The Range Rover Sport SVR remains the supercar-SUV it's always been, but this model also benefits from enhancements for 2018.

There is also a new version of the flagship high performance SVR model being released with its supercharged engine now uprated to 575bhp - an increase of 25bhp over the previous model. The updates include the new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which features two 10.0in touchscreens, up to 12 power points and Activity Key, which allows owners to lock and unlock their vehicle without a key fob.
