It is located on the Scottish Isle of Skye.

Land Rover has installed the most inaccessible terminal in the UK for charging its plug-in hybrids. It is located on the Scottish Isle of Skye, 24 kilometers from the nearest road. Using the terminal, you can charge the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport P400e batteries in 2 hours and 45 minutes. The presentation of the charging station was timed for April 1.

The company said that the location of charging will allow owners of plug-in hybrids to “enjoy the scenic views” of the Isle of Skye, as well as experience the capabilities of their car. To get to the terminal, they will need to overcome steep climbs and marshy plains. In this case, the route will be possible with minimal harm to the environment, since the power reserve of hybrids on electric traction is about 50 kilometers.

Range Rover with the P400e index is equipped with a two-liter gasoline turbo engine of the Ingenium family with a capacity of 300 horsepower and a 116-horsepower electric motor. The hybrid plant is powered by a 13.1 kW-hour block of lithium-ion batteries.

The total return of the powerplant Range Rover P400e is 404 horsepower and 640 Nm of torque. From zero to one hundred kilometers per hour, the SUV accelerates in 6.7 seconds, and its maximum speed is 220 kilometers per hour.
