PHEV

Is the refuel procedure on the PHEV Range Rovers the same on other PHEV vehicles?

First there’s a dedicated button to open the fuel door the also opens the fuel tank isolation valve & depressurized the tank then unlocks the filler flap.  I’ll let the owners manual take it from here:

LRL 10 02 61 191

FUEL FILLER FLAP LOCK
Note: Make sure that the vehicle is refuelled shortly after the refuelling button is pressed. Failure to do so may result in the fuel tank not being filled to the required level. If in doubt, check the fuel level gauge in the instrument panel before continuing the journey, to prevent running out of fuel.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) have a locking fuel filler flap and an isolation valve on the fuel tank.
The vehicle cannot be refuelled until the following has occurred:
• The isolation valve on the fuel tank is open.
• The fuel tank is depressurised.
• The fuel filler flap is unlocked.
To enable refuelling, carry out the following:

1. Switch off the vehicle’s ignition, apply the Electric Parking Brake (EPB), and make sure that the transmission is engaged in Park (P).
2. Press the refuelling button located in the lower switch panel at the driver’s side of the fascia. The isolation valve on the fuel tank opens to depressurise the fuel tank. The fuel filler flap unlocks. The instrument panel displays a message to confirm that the fuel filler flap is unlocking.
3. The instrument panel displays a message to confirm that the fuel filler flap is unlocked and the vehicle can be refuelled. See 382, FUEL FILLER FLAP.

The isolation valve on the fuel tank remains open for approximately 10 minutes, at which point the valve shuts, preventing further refuelling. If further refuelling is required, repeat the above process to open the isolation valve on the fuel tank.

Note: Make sure that the vehicle is stationary. The fuel filler flap does not unlock, and the isolation valve on the fuel tank does not open, if the vehicle is moving. The instrument panel displays a message to confirm that the vehicle’s speed is too high.

Note: Make sure that the fuel filler flap is closed after refuelling. The instrument panel displays a message to confirm that the fuel filler flap is not fully closed. If a fault is detected on either the fuel filler flap system, or on the isolation valve system on the fuel tank, the instrument panel displays a message. In this event, consult a retailer/authorised repairer or roadside assistance. See 501, ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE. See 357, PROTECT.

2019 Range Rover Sport PHEV Open Water Challenge

2019 Range Rover Sport PHEV Open Water Challenge (1)

The demanding point-to-point is the latest in a series of challenges completed by the Range Rover Sport, including a record-setting hill-climb at Pikes Peak, a record crossing of the ‘Empty Quarter’ desert in the Arabian Peninsula and last year’s Downhill Alpine Ski Challenge.

With two-time open-water swimming world champion Keri-anne Payne and endurance athlete Ross Edgley hitting the waves, the Range Rover Sport faced soft sand, tidal roads and waded through waves up to 850mm deep on its 14km (8.7-mile) inland drive from Bantham Beach to Burgh Island in South Devon, UK.

The team of swimmers faced a challenging 1.5km (0.9-mile) course across the choppy coastline while the new Range Rover Sport P400e electric-petrol model encountered roads flooded by the incoming tide and used its EV mode to make near-silent progress through the tiny villages along its route.

The performance SUV reached the beach just as the tide covered the sand that links Burgh Island to the mainland, leaving the Range Rover Sport to put its wading capabilities to the test and overtake the swimmers just before the finish line.

The victorious Range Rover Sport is available for the first time with an advanced plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrain. It gives the P400e version an EV range of 51km, combined fuel consumption of 101mpg and CO2 emissions of 64g/km.

The Range Rover Sport P400e is the first model to use Land Rover’s advanced plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology, combining an 85kW (116PS) electric motor and a 2.0-litre Si4 300PS (221kW) Ingenium petrol engine to produce 404PS (297kW) and 640Nm of torque.

Land Rover’s intelligent Terrain Response 2 system optimises all-terrain capability for maximum traction on any surface, automatically configuring the vehicle to suit the driving conditions. Allied to the electric motor on the new P400e model, this allows for even more precise management of torque that makes the Range Rover Sport such a capable performance SUV.
