Land Rover is set to expand its range of hybrid models, according to company boss John Edwards.

A diesel electric hybrid Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have just gone on sale but these will be joined by others, he told What Car?.

‘Every new product, built on a new architecture will have the ability to accept hybrid or, possibly, full EV. It isn't a plan to make everything a hybrid, though.’

However, Land Rover engineers are working on a plug-in hybrid Range Rover, which will travel around 30 miles on electric power before resorting to assistance from the diesel engine. This new model is still a few years off, but will have CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km; the current RR Hybrid is good for 169g/km.

This technology will also be offered in the Range Rover Sport and, likely, the replacement for the Discovery, which is due in 2015.
